Principal's Message

Dear North Star Community,

I am honored to serve as the principal of North Star Elementary. From the moment I was given the opportunity to serve as the principal of North Star, I have felt such a tremendous support from the community and staff here. I am excited and humbled to work for and with each of you; I am especially excited to meet the students at North Star and create a culture and environment in which all students learn at high levels. 

As I have had the opportunity to meet with North Star teachers, I am confident that we have the right teachers to help North Star students be successful in all aspects of their education. It is my responsibility to ensure that we, as a school community, take care of each student enrolled at North Star. I would like to echo Dr. Lexi Cunningham’s districtwide message, as I believe her words apply to us at North Star:

“The vision of the Salt Lake City School District is Excellence and Equity: Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day. Collectively we will work to cultivate a love of learning in a diverse and inclusive school community. We will hold high expectations for all students, respond to individual needs, and provide a safe, healthy environment in which every student can learn.” 

I will ensure that every experience students encounter at North Star is meaningful and impactful. I look forward to helping our students learn and develop new skills by making every experience matter.
