Mrs. Kristi Skladanowski

Welcome to the Salk Elementary School Website. My name is Kristi Skladanowski, and I am proud and honored to serve the Salk community this year as your principal.

If you are a new Salk family, WELCOME! If you are a returning Seahawk, WELCOME BACK! I look forward to a great year, continuing to pave the way to success for each of our students.  

As your principal, I am committed to continuing the successful reputation both in the classroom and in the community that Salk has worked so hard to accomplish. Our staff will partner with our parents and communicate often. Our collaborative Professional Learning Communities allow this to be a reality. We meet regularly to discuss grade-level goals and curriculum to ensure the success of every child.  This year, we will focus our efforts on collaboration, communication, and character, while still maintaining critical thinking, creativity, and good citizenship in and out of the classroom.  

As a school, we have three positive expectations for ALL to follow – Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. We also follow the FISH philosophy. This encourages our staff and students to work towards the following core principals – Be There, Choose YOUR Attitude, Play, and Make THEIR Day. This foundation for positive behaviors can be found on posters all over our building, but more importantly, in our attitudes. New to the 2019-2020 school year, we are working on themes/character traits each month.  We not only want to provide a great academic education for your child but also build strong character.   

Our PTO is a dedicated group of parent volunteers that do a fantastic job bridging the link between home and school, providing many opportunities for our students and staff, both financially and the extra-curricular activities they put on. I hope you will look for opportunities to become a part of the many efforts of our Salk PTO. We are fortunate for this hardworking team.  

Please visit our website often to find out what is happening at our school. You can also follow us on Twitter - #SalkSOARS.  If you have any additional questions or would like more information on any of our programs or curriculum, please feel free to contact me.

I am looking forward to a great school year and I am eager to continue to build relationships and connect with our Salk families! Please do not hesitate to stop me when you see me to chat.
