Principal’s Message

Dear Kaseberg Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am thrilled to be welcoming your children back to school! We have eagerly anticipated the full reopening of our campus. Our commitment to fostering resilience, perseverance, grit, and empathy during this past year will undoubtedly help our students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally this school year.

Our Kaseberg team will continue to focus on supporting our students’ needs academically and socially-emotionally with our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support.  We will also continue working diligently to meet the diverse needs of our students through small group instruction across all grade levels, school-wide implementation of our PBIS behavior expectations, and incorporating our GLAD units to support our science and social studies content areas in all classrooms.  

Our staff has made a goal and commitment this school year to become  Gold Certified in our Schoolwide Positive Behavior Intervention Supports.   This means that we will ensure we are deliberate in teaching self-regulation, and emotional wellness will carry on through lessons by our teachers, counselor and elementary learning specialist using our Second Step Curriculum. Practices such as naming emotions, communicating needs, self advocacy, and implementing “Calming Corners” in all classrooms to help our students have ownership over their responses to their emotions.

We, here at Kaseberg Elementary, are eager to bring our community back together.  To see parents, and families back on campus supporting our students as they embark on this new school year.  We are excited to see where this school year takes us and it’s going to be an amazing year Hawks!

Best Regards,

Melissa Duncan
