Superintendent Klebe Leaving

Parents and Community members,

This message is not easy for me to write as Elder Grove has been a family to me for the last 16 years. However, a career opportunity in Laurel has presented itself that better meets the needs of my family and me. I accepted the position. As of the beginning of August, I will no longer be at Elder Grove. It is my hope and prayer that the community will continue to support the students at Elder Grove School. A healthy school will bring a healthy community. 

When I think back to the last 16 years at Elder Grove, I marvel at the changes that have happened. There were 315 students that were attending back in 2002, and there were 5 separate buildings. The playground was off of 64th St. and there was a ditch that separated the middle school and elementary. Most of the grass you see today was nothing but weeds. Through strong leadership (administration, teachers, board members and community members) and a very supportive community, the school has transformed into what you see today. Elder Grove is on the cutting edge of educational practices, which are considered to be the best for students; its facility is impressive and growing and its staff, the best! I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve this wonderful community. It has been an amazing journey. I will continue to keep my eye on what great things are about to happen for Elder Grove.

Elder Grove is in a position to continue to grow and prosper with the middle school design and construction underway. It has some of the best teachers in the state and a great leadership team to support them. I am confident that Elder Grove will continue to be an outstanding school district. In many ways, it saddens me that now I get to marvel at its greatness from outside.
