Principal's Page

Dear Kenwood Families,

Welcome to Kenwood Elementary School! I am sure that you will find your time here at Kenwood will be filled with many exciting learning opportunities.  As principal, I am dedicated to ensuring the learning of each child. It is our goal to prepare all of our children for the future and to teach them to be life-long learners. Along with our teachers, staff, parents and community, I will work hard to ensure that our Kenwood students are receiving a strong educational experience throughout the school year. It is through a strong home-school connection that we are able to meet each student’s social, emotional, and academic needs.

As a member of the School City of Hammond, I have served the community as a Classroom Teacher, a Literacy Coach, Instructional Coach, and as an Assistant to the Principal.  I have lived in Hammond the majority of my life and attended elementary, middle and high school here.  I am excited to work with you as a partner in your child’s education.

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve the Kenwood community. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas you have to help make this the best school year yet! It is through the strong partnership between our staff and parents that all of our Lions will find success.


To an amazing year of learning for all,

Mrs. Yoos
