Message from Gresham-Barlow School District to Kelly Creek Families

Dear Kelly Creek Elementary School Families,

We have some important news to share with you. At the end of the 2019-20 school year, Kelly Creek Elementary School Principal Beth Fraze will leave the school to become the principal of Highland Elementary School.

Ms. Fraze has done an exemplary job serving the Kelly Creek community for the last two years. Her focus on inclusive practices and work to design tiered systems of support for the varied academic and social-emotional needs of students has provided the foundation for improvement moving forward.

Ms. Fraze will begin serving as Highland Elementary School principal July 1.

The school district has begun the search for the next principal of Kelly Creek Elementary School. In the coming weeks, the District will gather feedback from families and school staff to determine what characteristics and attributes Kelly Creek Elementary School’s next principal should have. Please watch for updates.

Parents can provide feedback here:
