Dear Polk Central Elementary School families,

I want to warmly welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. With the new school year comes some new faces to the Polk Central family, including my own. I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve this school, staff, and community as the principal. Last year, Polk Schools and the students and families we serve proved resilient through some challenging circumstances. It is my sincere pleasure to begin a new journey working with the dedicated staff and community of Polk Central to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students as we continue to persevere and rise to whatever challenges come our way.  We are committed to ensuring that your children receive the best support to learn, grow, and thrive as individuals.

Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children, and those partnerships begin with strong communication. The staff and I want you to know that we are here for your children, and we are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a learning environment rich with meaningful lessons, activities, and discussions. I wish your family, and especially your student, success this school year!


Kim McMinn, Principal
