message From Mr. Mike dunn
Dear Kelly Lane Parents,
It is with great excitement that I introduce myself to you as Principal of Kelly Lane Intermediate School. Over my three years serving the district as K-12 Language Arts Supervisor, I have been privileged to work closely with members of the Kelly Lane family to align curriculum, improve instruction, and develop supports for students and teachers, and I am deeply honored to lead this exceptional learning community.
Kelly Lane is indeed a very special place, made so by the caring commitment of our teachers, staff and parents, by our amazing students, and by the effective leadership of Mr. Bob Gilbert, whom I join you in thanking for his years of dedicated service. Time and again I have been impressed with the work, creativity and kindness our students can contribute to the world both inside and outside the walls of Kelly Lane, and I am excited to both honor and nurture this rich legacy.
I look forward to knowing and caring for each of your children, and to working hard to help our dedicated and talented teachers develop them into ever more powerful thinkers, effective collaborators and compassionate contributors in accord with our unique mission. Over the coming days, weeks and months, I also look forward to getting to know you as we collaborate to continue to grow your children as thinkers and learners. Whether at pick up, at a concert or at a Kelly Kids Care event, please feel free to introduce yourselves, and to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. On Monday July 15th from 8:00-11:00 a.m., and again on Thursday July 25th from 3:00-6:00 p.m., I invite you to stop by the Kelly Lane main office for an opportunity to meet one another.
I believe in our mission, I believe in what Kelly Lane is all about, I believe in our teachers, and, most importantly, I believe in the unlimited potential of our students. I am excited to apply what I have learned in my twenty years as an educator as we begin this next stage of our journey together.
Mike Dunn, Principal
