Principal's Corner

    Mr. Johns

    Dear Mae Jemison Families,


    My name is Kevin Johns, Principal at Mae Jemison Elementary. It is my privilege and honor to join Mae Jemison and the Prairie-Hills Elementary School District and community. I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with our students and working with our professional staff and you, our parents and community members.  

    My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment.  Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.  Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort.

    In order to accomplish this goal, I have developed over the years a philosophical phrase:  The 3 A’s to Success.  These are:  Attendance, Attitude, and Academics. I will be spending a considerable amount of time discussing and implementing these concepts into what we are already doing at Mae Jemison Elementary.  I sincerely believe that by adhering to the basic ideas embedded in these three concepts, our students will become well-rounded individuals and ready for the next phases. When we, as adults and role models, also adhere to these concepts, our students will better see the value of these concepts.

    I am very passionate about the elementary school years.  Most of my teaching and administrative years have been working with students and staff of this age group.  This is an important and critical time of transition – moving from the elementary experience and preparing for the bigger challenge of junior high school.  What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their development and growth.

    I hope each of you have enjoyed these past few weeks of summer, and now looking forward to a great school year.  The year will be busy, exciting, and hopefully very rewarding for each student.
