Elm Grove Families,
It is a pleasure and honor to continue to serve the Elm Grove Elementary School community. Getting to work alongside our students, staff, and family members of this wonderful school continues to be an amazing experience each day. It is our goal for every student to experience a school where they are challenged with high expectations in a warm and supportive environment.
One of the things that I have been proudest of throughout my years here as principal of Elm Grove is the continued work with Leader In Me. Through the years, I have seen curriculum and “best” teaching practices come and go -- but, I am so glad to say that the one thing that has remained constant is our focus on student empowerment and student leadership. Through our Leader in Me process, we have not only been able to build academic skills, but we are also giving our students tools that will help them to be successful in whatever path they choose to follow. Leader in Me is based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People brought down to a kid level of understanding. Whether you are new to Elm Grove, or just want a refresher on the 7 habits, please visit leaderinme.org. Additional information on how you can support your leader(s) at home will be coming in the near future!
I am looking forward to a great year! Please know that my door is always open if you have questions or concerns that need to be addressed. It takes us all working together to make sure that our students are getting nothing but the best!
Kathy Faulks, Principal
