Dear South Park Elementary Families,
My name is Morganlee Kempf and I am your new South Park Elementary principal. It is with great honor and excitement that I write this letter of introduction, as we turn the corner to a new and bright 2021-22 school year. I am thrilled to have been selected to serve a school that is known for its strong community, academic success and dedication to the whole child! Over the past 12 years, I have had the opportunity to serve Pueblo District 60 and the Pueblo community as a teacher, instructional leader, content specialist and assistant principal. I am eager to bring the knowledge and skills I have gained along the way to add to the already stellar reputation of South Park and I am anxious to learn more about each and every child’s social and academic interests.
I will work hard to continue the legacy of successes established by this amazing staff and accomplished leader, Mrs. Lynne Brunjack. I am beyond grateful to Mrs. Brunjack for establishing such great roots and foundation to carry forward. We wish Mrs. Brunjack the absolute best on her well deserved retirement!
One of my number priorities is to build strong relationships with the staff, students, families and community partners and to focus on the social and emotional well-being of our Cougars. It is extremely important to me that each South Park Cougar feels safe, welcome and excited to be at school.
We have experienced a past year like never before, and these experiences have shaped and molded us all in different ways. Although there is a great deal of work ahead to transition our schools and community back to normalcy, I am beyond confident that the dedicated staff here at South Park will make it possible!
Our work has already begun for next year, and as a team we will continue to focus on data driven instruction that provides rigorous and authentic academic experiences that support the whole child. We are prepared to make for a strong bounce back! I couldn’t be more delighted to be a part of this team!
My door is always open and I welcome and value your input. Please feel free to contact me by email or phone. I look forward to working together, as we continue to support our students in meeting their academic goals and future aspirations.
Truly thankful to be your new leader,
