Principal's Message

Kouts Elementary School supports the small-town community feel in many ways: small class sizes; caring and supportive teachers; and staff that clearly believe “It takes a village.”
Developing long-lasting relationships with my students is important in establishing authentic rapport with them. Having this rapport allows me to know all 400+ students by name and results in more positive and disciplined climate.
You can expect an honest, fair, and respectful response from me in every circumstance.
