Natchez Elementary School

    Principal: Mr. Daniel Kirk



    Welcome Back, Mustangs!

    I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged, and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children. 

    All signs point to another incredible and productive school year.. We are all geared up to welcome our families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the shared vision of “Building Successful Communities through positive collaboration”!

    New Staff

    Each year brings positive change. This year includes a few additions to our staff. We are delighted to welcome Mrs. Tolbert, our new 4th-grade teacher, Mrs. Malmed, our new 1st-grade teacher, Mrs. Tuttle our new counselor, and Mrs. Brandt, our new speech pathologist. We are super excited for all these exceptional educators to be part of our Natchez community.

    New Positive Behavior Incentive System (PBIS) and Mustang Expectations

    As a community, we have developed and will be implementing a revised PBIS and Expectations system at Natchez this school year. As Natchez Mustangs, we will be focusing on being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe throughout our entire school community. We will be focusing as a whole school community to ensure a consistent and positive behavior system is implemented to promote a positive environment to enhance our Mighty Mustang student’s growth.

    You will see these expectations posted throughout the building. Teachers and Staff will be explicitly teaching these three expectations to our students for all areas of the school (cafeteria, playground, classroom, etc.) as well as integrating Social Emotional lessons for supporting our Might Mustangs social and emotional needs. To positively reinforce these expectations, your students will be receiving individual tickets called “Pookoo points” for meeting expectations. These positive behavior tickets will be “cashed in” for rewards throughout the school year.19-20 School Year

    “Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best that they possibly can be!”

    Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that Natchez Elementary is the most excellent place for our students to thrive, grow, and learn. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.


    Warmest Regards,

    Mr. Kirk
