Dear Lion Parents, Guardians and Friends:


It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Kenwood Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to assist our staff in making this a great school year for the Kenwood community.  I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you better as the school year progresses.  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 bring my skills as an educational leader to Kenwood Elementary and 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.


Mrs. A. Yoos, Principal
