Dear Menlo Park Families, Students, and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! We are preparing for another wonderful year! I am excited to serve as the Principal of Menlo Park Elementary School- a school that has earned an outstanding reputation for high expectations, academic excellence and a positive, safe learning environment that serves and nurtures all of our students.
Menlo Park’s dedicated, caring, expert staff is committed to inspiring each student to grow, succeed, and achieve high levels of academic success. Our teachers work continuously to effect positive change in teaching practices that ensure our students receive the best instruction possible!
Menlo Park strives to instill three behavioral expectations: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful. We believe that all students deserve to develop in a safe learning environment that promotes and supports students to become positive and productive citizens.
We encourage all families to become involved with your child’s education. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, or concerns that arise throughout the school year. Please feel free to visit Menlo, contact your child’s classroom teacher, our office staff, and me. I look forward to partnering with every family to ensure your child has a rewarding, positive and successful school year at Menlo Park Elementary School!
Kellie M. Burkhardt
Principal, Menlo Park Elementary School
