Kesterson Elementary School

Welcome New Assistant Principal Dena Pritchett

It is with great excitement that I join Kesterson Elementary School as Assistant Principal. I am looking forward to working collaboratively with staff, students, and the community to create meaningful learning experiences that will encourage students to reach their full potential.

I have been an educator for 24 years. During that time, I have worked with children from preschool through 5th grade, serving students and families as an instructional assistant, classroom teacher, learning strategist, and literacy specialist. My diverse educational experience has taught me the importance of high-quality instruction for all students and has equipped me with a toolbox of strategies to support the staff and students at Kesterson Elementary.

I am originally from Southern California, where I attended California State Polytechnic University Pomona. My husband and I settled in Henderson over 11 years ago and have one daughter and an adorable Yorkie named Dexter. We love being a part of the Henderson community!

I look forward to partnering with the Kesterson students, families, and staff to provide a positive and engaging school experience.

Winter Break

CCSD Winter Break begins Monday, December 21st, and extends thru Friday, January 1st, 2021. Students will return to online instruction on Monday, January 4th. During this time, teachers will be unavailable and not responding to phone calls or emails; just like our students, the teachers need the opportunity to rest, recharge, and spend time with their loved ones. If you need assistance, the Clark County School District has several resources available for families:

Safe Voice: Anonymous reporting system used to report threats to the safety or well-being of students 1(833) 261-SAFE.

Help: 211

Mobile Crisis Response Team: (702) 486-7865

Well Check

If you would like to schedule a check in for your child over the Winter Break please email Mrs. Pritchett our Assistant Principal at and let her know if you would prefer a phone call or Google Meet session for your student.

Art During COVID-19

The arts are critical for helping children connect with peers, express themselves, and process stress by engaging in creative activities, which is especially important during times of crisis. This semester Ms. Denney our amazing Art teacher has noted students' passion for art and would like to encourage this creativity to continue over Winter Break and throughout the school year. Just a hint: if you are still trying to find the perfect gift for your student(s) consider purchasing art supplies to encourage their creativity.
