Our School

Dear Menlo Park Families, Students and Community Members:

I am proud to be 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 learn, grow and thrive. Our staff works continuously to effect positive change. We believe in nurturing the whole child. Part of our mission is to promote a positive growth mindset and to help children realize they have unlimited potential. If they don’t know something it just means they have not learned it yet!

Menlo Park strives to instill three behavioral expectations: Being Safe, Being Responsible, and Being Respectful. We believe that all students deserve to develop in a safe and caring 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. We want you to be a part of our community and feel welcome here in our building. There are a variety of ways to help including, but not limited to, assisting in the classroom, helping with our afterschool program, volunteering in our food pantry or garden, assisting with garden classes, reading to children, escorting on field trips, and attending our parent Booster Club or Hispanic Club monthly meetings.  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! Please feel free to call me with questions, kudos, or concerns.

Kellie M. Burkhardt
Principal, Menlo Park Elementary School
