West Park Principal Announcement
Dear West Park Parents:
I hope this finds you well and enjoying the final weeks of the school year! I am writing to update you on our West Park Elementary principal hiring process. I am thrilled to announce that Kathleen Fitzsimmons has accepted the principal position and will be leading the school starting in the 2017-18 school year. Kathleen’s long tenure in the district; strong performance in multiple roles; outstanding reputation in our schools and community; and demonstrated leadership capacity were all factors in our decision.
Asked about her interest in the West Park principal position, Kathleen cited her belief in the importance of strong early education and her excitement about deepening the school’s work with Expeditionary Learning. “West Park is the foundation of a successful K-12 experience, and I am thrilled to be joining the school’s team and the important work the staff and students are doing every day,” she said. “Over the past 20 years of working in LCSD, I have developed a deep dedication to Leadville’s students and families, and I am excited to serve them in this new role.”
We could not be more excited to see what Kathleen and the West Park staff are able to accomplish together toward student success.
Please join me in congratulating Kathleen and welcoming her to West Park in this new role!
Wendy Wyman, Superintendent
