Principal's Message

Welcome to First Flight Elementary School, where we live the KSCRP Way every day. We practice kindness, safety, cooperation, respect and peace throughout each day to help us “be powerful in a positive way!” 

At First Flight Elementary, we believe that students learn best within a collaborative learning  community that includes teachers, parents, and community members who are learning alongside them and equipping them with strategies to be successful in their educational journey.  We provide a safe and nurturing environment where all students have opportunities to discover and learn through hands-on activities, collaborative experiences, and small-group instruction from highly qualified teachers. 

Our First Flight Elementary teachers and staff are incredible and strive each day to help students learn through building positive relationships, communicating and partnering with families, providing learning experiences that are differentiated to meet each student's needs as a learner, and providing a safe and inviting learning environment in every part of our school. I am very honored to work with such an excellent staff. 

Parent involvement and participation are welcomed and seen as a crucial part of your child's education.Whether working with teachers to provide extra support in the classroom, serving with our PTO to enhance our school through special programs or projects, or having lunch with their child, our parents improve the quality of education in our school through positive interaction with students and reflecting and reinforcing our KSCRP way of life at FFES. 

We are privileged to have many partners from the community who regularly work with us to provide extra support for teachers and students, enhance our celebrations of students who demonstrate what it is to live the KSCRP way, and serve as positive role models for our school community. Our First Flight Elementary culture is richer because of our many friends who share their gifts and talents with us throughout the school year.

We invite you to come see us and discover for yourself all of the great things that are going on in our school each day. And don't forget to like us on Facebook!
