Principal Profile Picture

Hello Hicks families! 

It is a pleasure to be a part of this amazing community.  I have had the great fortune to be a Hicks tiger for the last 21 years.  In 2003 I started at Hicks as our assistant principal, and in 2008 I was entrusted with leading the school in the role of principal.  Longevity means that I have watched students grow up, have children, and bring those children right back to Hicks!  We also have a number of teachers who attended Hicks as students.  So cool!

At Hicks we commit to providing a caring culture, acting with perseverance and accountability, and providing purpose driven instruction.  Our values and beliefs guide our decisions and actions.

I would like to encourage all families to be an active part of our school.  Take classes in the Family Center.  Volunteer in the library or gardens.  Join a committee.  Check out extra books for your children or resources for yourself.  Have fun at Family Nights or dance with your child at the Hoe Down.  Observe a class.  Join lunch.  Ask questions.  Share ideas.  Be a part of your child’s educational experience. 

With pride and appreciation,

Mary Kesler
