Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Francis Case Elementary! I am honored to be principal at Francis Case working with amazing students, families, and a wonderful group of dedicated professionals. Our priority is to provide a high quality education for every student, every day. At Francis Case our mission statement is, “Working together to promote success and support all students to achieve their potential.”   Our theme this year is Knowledge is Your Power!

Francis Case Elementary is the home of approximately 470 students.  We serve second and third grade students. Our staff works closely in collaborative teams as well as with the administrative team to provide a focused program of instruction. Francis Case staff work diligently to provide instruction for students at their success level, differentiating instruction so that all students are challenged and feel success.  At Francis Case Elementary School, we provide a safe, orderly, respectful environment that promotes high levels of student engagement and performance. We honor the unique strengths, talents, and diversity of each of our students and dedicate our efforts to help them experience individual success.

We value the partnership with our parents and our community. Parents know their children best and this parent and school partnership is valuable in helping us to support the unique needs of students. We encourage parents to become involved in your child’s education.  We love to see parents at parent teacher conferences, Family Fun Night, Book Fairs, volunteering in the classroom and attending many of the other special events we host at Francis Case.  It takes a Team and you are an important part of our team!

As the principal, I have an open door policy.  Please feel free to stop and visit with any questions or thoughts you may have or feel free to contact me at 605-923-0070.

Here’s to a wonderful school year!
