Principal's Message

    It is with great pride and excitement that I am the Principal of Lenox Elementary School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your child's school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with the staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Lenox by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on providing a positive and safe school culture and climate through our Positive Behavior Intervention Support program, and consistent and engaging implementation of standards-based teaching and learning to increase students’ growth and achievement. 

    The diverse student population at Lenox Elementary School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Lenox staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to provide rigorous and highly engaging instruction in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek continuous improvement in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Sarah Keller

    Dear Lenox Elementary School Staff and Families,

    As you know, Principal Gina McLain will become the new principal of Butternut Creek Elementary School as of July 1, 2021, and we have been seeking her replacement at Lenox. Today, I am pleased to announce that Sarah Keller has been selected for the position. 

    Ms. Keller started her educational career in the Hillsboro School District in 2009 as an elementary classroom teacher. In 2016, she became the District’s PAX teacher on special assignment (TOSA). PAX is a set of research-proven strategies to support students’ social-emotional learning. In 2018, the title of her role changed to universal student supports TOSA, as it not only encompassed PAX, but also the implementation of Sanford Harmony curriculum across the District’s 25 elementary schools. 

    Ms. Keller also supports visioning, strategic planning, implementation, and monitoring of HSD’s Career & College and Social Emotional Learning roadmaps, resources, and overall framework for grades PreK-12; in addition, she serves as co-facilitator of the District’s Climate and Culture professional learning community.  

    A member of our Future Leaders program for the past three years, Ms. Keller is highly organized and collaborative, a data-driven decision maker, and adept at using culturally-responsive pedagogy in designing and facilitating professional development and system response. I am confident she will do a great job as the next leader of Lenox Elementary School and that you will enjoy working with her.

    Please join me in congratulating Ms. Keller and welcoming her to the Lenox Elementary School community.

    Estimados miembros del personal y familias de la Escuela Primaria Lenox:

    Como ya sabrán, la directora Gina McLain será la nueva directora de la Escuela Primaria Butternut Creek a partir del 1 de julio de 2021 y hemos estado buscando a alguien que pueda ocupar su puesto en Lenox. El día de hoy, me complace anunciar que Sarah Keller ha sido seleccionada para el puesto. 

    La Sra. Keller comenzó su profesión educativa en el Distrito Escolar de Hillsboro en 2009 como maestra de primaria. En 2016, fue seleccionada como maestra en asignación especial (TOSA, por sus siglas en inglés) del programa PAX del Distrito. PAX es un conjunto de estrategias basadas en investigaciones que sirven para apoyar el aprendizaje socioemocional de los estudiantes. En 2018, el título de su puesto de trabajo cambió a TOSA de apoyo generalizado para todos los estudiantes, ya que no solo incluía el modelo PAX, sino también la implementación del currículo Sanford Harmony en las 25 escuelas primarias del Distrito.  

    La Sra. Keller también apoya la visión, planificación estratégica, implementación y supervisión del programa Caminos a la Profesión y a la Universidad, así como la creación de los mapas de ruta de HSD del aprendizaje socioemocional, los recursos y la estructura general del aprendizaje para los grados PreK-12; además de servir como cofacilitadora de la comunidad de aprendizaje profesional para el entorno y la cultura del Distrito.  

    Como miembro de nuestro programa de Future Leaders durante los últimos tres años, la Sra. Keller es altamente organizada y colaboradora, toma decisiones basadas en datos y es especialista en el uso de pedagogías culturalmente receptivas al diseñar y facilitar desarrollo profesional y sistemas de respuesta. Estoy seguro de que hará un gran trabajo como directora de la Escuela Primaria Lenox y que disfrutarán trabajar con ella.

    Por favor, felicitemos a la Sra. Keller y démosle la bienvenida a la comunidad de la Escuela Primaria Lenox.


    Mike Scott
