An Open Letter to Parents, Guardians, and the Grandview Elementary Community;
Dear Grandview Families,
It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you. My name is Mallory Larsen, and I am the new Principal of Grandview Elementary School. I am eager to get to know all of you and to serve the Grandview Community as your school leader.
In an effort to let you know more about me, I’d like to share some background information. I was born and raised in the Omaha, Nebraska area. I came to Manhattan in 2007 to begin my collegiate career and I felt right at home, so I never left. I earned both my bachelors and master’s degrees from Kansas State University, and I bleed purple! I am huge sports fan and I especially love football and basketball. I have spent my entire teaching career in USD 475 where I served as a classroom teacher and an MTSS Coach before getting the opportunity to become a school leader.
My number one priority as a principal is putting students first. I believe all students are capable of learning and achieving at high levels. As your school leader, I will partner with you and our dedicated staff to ensure students are maximizing their potential. My educational philosophy revolves around relationships, so my first goal will be to get to know my students, staff, and families.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I am looking forward to learning and growing alongside all of you in my first year as the principal of Grandview Elementary.
Mrs. Mallory Larsen, Principal
