Dear Schenk Families,
My name is Sue Abplanalp and am looking forward to meeting all of you as the new principal of Schenk Elementary School. I am excited to work with you to support your children and the Schenk Community. Collectively we can create the synergy needed to take Schenk School to new heights of excellence.
I have been meeting with Dr. Durtschi this summer to ensure the transition between leadership is smooth. I am looking forward to meeting the Schenk families to hear your reflections and hopes and dreams for the future. I encourage you to stop in and have a chat with me as I would like to hear from each of you. Please email me if you need anything prior to then as I am a quick responder.
I want you to know that I am a person who embraces collaboration, communication and transparency of actions. I have heard great things about the Schenk staff and parent community over the years and look forward to learning from all of you as we create the synergy needed to assure that every student has the skills and emotional support to be college, career and community ready.
