Message from the Principal

Dear Swartz Families,

I hope you are all enjoyed your family time this summer and the amazing weather we have been having. I am excited to start my third year as principal of Salt Creek School and Stella May Swartz School. I have met most of you as I was the Assistant Principal at Salt Creek School and Albright Middle School for the three years. Before that, I was a teacher at Albright and have taught many of our district’s students. This is a very special district, and having worked elsewhere, I am honored to be able to call Salt Creek District 48 home. This is a wonderful place to work, and more importantly, be a student.

My first year two years at Swartz School were amazing and everyone was very welcoming. I am excited to start this year with a building full of students that started with me at Salt Creek School. It has been an exciting experience to watch them mature and learn throughout the years. Mrs. Smith, formerly Ms. Keysor, moved over to Swartz with our current 2nd Graders and is our Assistant Principal there this year.

Salt Creek School has been my home for five years now, and I am very glad to continue working with this great groups of teachers and students. It has been wonderful meeting all of our new students and families this year already. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything. As I travel between the two schools, e-mail and phone work best. We can also set up a meeting in person, if needed. We are on Twitter, Facebook and have a new App, so follow us! I look forward to working closely with you and your children this school year.
