Message from the Principal


Dear Ticasuk Community,

May is such a busy month for families! Thank you for communicating with our staff on a regular basis. The traditional kindergarten round up days are now virtual. Please visit our school website at k12northstar.org/ticasuk and our Facebook page for the kindergarten welcome video.

This week is teacher appreciation week! Thank you teachers for all you do for our students. I appreciate your heroic effort during this pandemic. Teaching in person and to remote students is a big job. We are here teaching students because of your dedication and commitment to the students. You are truly the heroes in our community!

We traditionally have an end of the year picnic. With the increase in COVID-19 cases in our community, we are not hosting a picnic. Classes will have smaller picnics on certain days. Your child’s teacher will send the dates.. Thank you for understanding that your child’s health is our top priority.

Student Chromebooks and iPads are now being collected along with the cords. Please clean the devices before returning them to your child’s teacher. I certainly do not wish for you to get a bill this summer for devices and cords. See the device schedule below.

Ms. Catherine Pusch continues to visit Ticasuk in preparation for next year! Our assistant principal, Kelly Thrun, will be the new principal at Weller Elementary School in August 2020. She will be here sporadically as needed. Congratulations, Mrs. Thrun!

Have a wonderful day!

Bev Kokrine,
