Principal's Message

  • Dear Families:

    We are very proud of our rich traditions and of the educational accomplishments of our students, faculty, and community. At Wexford Elementary, we strive to ensure our children are engaged in an environment focused on high expectations reflecting academic, social and emotional development. As a new member of our school community, I am especially motivated to sustain the positive culture of kindness within our building.

    Our youngest learners begin their academic careers surrounded by a highly skilled and dedicated faculty and staff. The planning of instructional opportunities to activate young minds in a culture of curiosity becomes the focus of daily routines within our school. It is easy to see why Wexford Elementary School is named as a U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School. The collective effort to strive toward 21st-century excellence within an environment conducive to our children achieving their full potential is impressive. We will continue to set high expectations for our diverse learners. Our strong programming is built upon the Pine-Richland School District mission of Focused on Learning for Every Student Every Day.

    Growing student success happens when our teachers and Wexford Elementary families work together.  By embracing our PRIDE Values, we can create the most beneficial learning experience for our students. I have seen the amazing results of this collaborative effort reflected in our school garden and throughout our campus.

    I am excited to begin this journey as the principal of Wexford Elementary School and grateful for the opportunity to get to know your family in the new school year.

    Mrs. Kelly Gustafson
