A Message from the Principal

Dear Kelly Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to WELCOME all of you back to school! I am so very excited to see our kids in class learning and growing.

At Kelly School we will continue to work with you to make sure that all will be successful at our school, and be able to reach their milestones. Every student will learn at Kelly. Education is power, and it allows us to make life’s important choices. It IS the only thing that truly opens doors to a better future. I want this for all our Kelly students.

As my own sons go off to college this year, I understand this path began in their PPS School. I want this for all your students, as they are also ours! This is a true honor, and a very humbling job. To see students navigate through our school, get ready for middle school, high school, and beyond.

Our teachers are dedicated professionals who work with great diligence to assure all student success. They are the greatest TEAM I have ever worked with, and it is an honor to be working with them to assure the greatness that every student has. We will do this together, by creating an atmosphere of collaboration and connections with our community.

  This is a responsibility I never take for granted, and I thank you for placing your most precious kids in our hands. I remember my sons getting ready every year for their schools, and now as they get ready to all go off to college, I thank all the wonderful teachers, that along with me, helped them reach their potential.Parents, teachers, support staff, community and administration all have important   roles to encourage our children to become active, life-long learners. It is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for all our students to acquire the skills and personal development to become productive citizens in our vastly changing society.

  Through a close and collegial partnership with everyone associated with Kelly Elementary, I am confident we can continue to make our school a better place for all our students to learn and grow. The students, teachers, support staff, parents, and community volunteers are what make Kelly exceptional.

  At Kelly, T. E. A. M. will mean “Together Everyone Achieves More”. Please feel  free to stop in and introduce yourself, as my door is always open. I will treat everyone with fairness, dignity, and respect. It is my goal to strive for excellence every day, and to want for Kelly School kids what I want for my own: a great educational experience that will prepare them to be great contributors to our society. I thank you all for sharing your wonderful kids with me. I am excited to be your Principal.

  Sincerely,

  Marti Diaz

  Principal
