Principal's Pen

Dear Katherine Families,

It is with great excitement that I welcome all of you to Katherine Elementary! Katherine Elementary School is a neighborhood school that strives to provide our students with the skills needed for college and career readiness. A strong partnership exists between staff and parents, exemplified by our active Parent Teacher Association, and the many volunteers who assist with a variety of school programs. We offer several programs that supplement and support the core instructional program. These include music, art, intervention, after-school enrichment classes, and field days. Access to Chromebooks in every class allow students to learn 21st century computer skills including using Google applications for collaboration and research projects. Our school-wide focus area is the Health Science Medical Technology Academy through which all students experience lessons relating to Health Science.

Our educational philosophy is based on the belief that all students want and are able to learn. Our staff is student-centered and they hold high expectations for all students, both academically and behaviorally. Our instructional components are based on strong leadership, adherence to well-defined educational standards, an emphasis on foundational skills, and providing a safe and orderly school environment. We continually seek ways in which to better serve our students and community. We are excited for you to be a part of our school and share your ideas and talents with us.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Shay Lundstrom, Principal
