Principal, Mrs. Jester

Greetings Parents, Students, and Stakeholders!

Happy New School Year! I look forward to continuing in my role as the principal of Kilpatrick. I  am extremely excited about the new school year.  As the demands of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure our children reach their fullest potential. I believe that all of us- the school and the community- must work together as an extended family to insure success for all our students. It’s our responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful. 

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Kilpatrick Elementary. Whether you are a volunteer, a member of PTO, or a special event participant, you are encouraged to be involved! Increasing parent involvement in our school is a high priority for me in the coming year. Educational research clearly demonstrates that when parents are more involved in their child’s education the child’s likelihood for academic success greatly increases.         

One of our most important responsibilities to you is that we keep you informed of all that is taking place at the school. One of the ways we do this is regularly updating our school website. You can find up-to-date events, classroom photographs, and additional information, so I encourage you to visit it as often as possible. Another critical communication tool that we use to keep parents informed is Class DOJO (assistance on how to sign up will be provided by your child’s teacher.)  We will communicate as frequently as we can to keep you posted on important developments. Please feel free to contact the school or your child's teacher if you have questions and/or concerns.

This year we will be Leveling Up Learning and Growing our Mindset and we encourage all stakeholders to join us in our journey to Building a Better Tomorrow, Today!

 Kilpatrick Faculty and Staff remain committed to excellence and will work to ensure we provide a high quality education to our children. We look forward to your continued support as we work to improve student learning and achieve Excellence!

Yours in Education,


Candice N. Jester

Proud Principal
