As I enter my first year as a member of the Kelso School District team, I look forward to observing and supporting the specific ways in which we help students pursue their learning and form their dreams. We are here to inspire, encourage, teach and nurture our student’s growth into citizens of our community – locally and around the world. Wherever they serve and lead, they will take with them the pride of our community.
It’s going to be a great year!
