Mrs. Kristi Skladanowski
Welcome to the Salk Elementary School Website. My name is Kristi Skladanowski, and I am proud and honored to join the Salk community this year as your new principal.
I have been a part of the Fraser Family since Kindergarten, graduating from Fraser High School in 2002. I worked the first 8 years of my career at Edison Elementary as both a 5th grade and 21st Century teacher. I also had the opportunity during the 2017-2018 school year to work as the Coordinator of Student Services at Richards Middle School. These experiences provided me the ability to see where our Fraser elementary students begin and what they need to be prepared for their next chapter after Salk.
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.
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.
We are also fortunate to have a strong PTO. This dedicated group of parent volunteers does 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.
Please visit our website often to find out what is happening at our school. 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 build relationships and get to know our Salk families! Please do not hesitate to stop me when you see me during arrival and dismissal to introduce yourself.
