Message from the PrincipalDearest Students, Parents, and Community:
I have been privileged to have had 15 amazingly successful years at Kirkbride Elementary School. It is with gratitude that I look back. I entered a profession dedicated to assisting young people achieve their potential, to revealing or finding their best selves. With the help and support of caring parents and the entire community, I have been able to do just that. As I leave it, I am taking many of you with me. You will live on in my memories and I'll always remember your trust, kindness, and expressions of love.
With humble and sincere gratitude,
Estimados estudiantes, padres y comunidad:
