Letter from our Principal Candice Jester

Principal Desk

Greetings Parents, Students, and Stakeholders!


We are off to an amazing start of the 2017-18 school year and I would like to thank you for your support thus far.   I am so proud to serve as the principal of Kilpatrick and feel extremely privileged to be working alongside such a passionate group of parents, staff, and faculty who believe in Excellence for ALL!


We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to provide a safe and productive learning environment. We encourage you to share the same account-abilities by becoming an active part of your child’s school experience: sign-up as a volunteer, joining the PTO and attending school events.


In an effort to work together for our students’ success we encourage you to support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:


  • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready to learn. School begins at 7:45.
  • Completes all classroom and homework assignments given by teachers
  • Reads at least 20 minutes daily to develop a love for reading and to improve       literacy skills
  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
  • Exhibits appropriate behavior
  • Believes that he/she can succeed in school and that they will be college and/ or career ready

 We are committed to providing a high quality education to our children and we look forward to your continued support as we work to improve student learning and achieve Excellence!

Your Proud Principal,

Candice N. Jester
