It is a pleasure to welcome you to Arbor Creek Elementary — home of the Otters.

As we begin the 2023-24 school year, I am honored to serve this incredible community as principal of this amazing school with 21 years of tradition and excellence. Since opening our doors for the first time in August 2002, we have continued to celebrate years of exemplary performance and distinction within the State of Kansas. 

We are proud of our entrepreneurial spirit in our teachers at Arbor Creek, who are always striving for new ways that students can learn and grow. Congratulations to art teacher Jenna Howe, who has secured several innovative grants for the school. Congratulations as well to music teacher Chy Billings who also secured a school grant. We were delighted to have received a $2,500 grant from the Olathe Public Schools Foundation for our maker’s space and STEAM classroom called the Spark Room.  A number of wonderful materials were purchased, including Legos, clay, and small coding robots. 

Our school has a record of exceptional academic achievement. The mission statement here at Arbor Creek is “Challenge the Mind, Strengthen the Heart, Build the Future.”  Our staff are caring, dedicated and have high expectations for themselves and their students. The quality of relationships that exist between students and teachers and home with school adds to the uniqueness and success of ACE.

I look forward to working with each of you as we begin an exciting school year together. We welcome you to check out our website, get involved and explore the many opportunities our amazing school has to offer.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
