Our School

Kersey Creek Elementary School building

Kersey Creek Elementary School, established in 2006, is home to 733 (and growing) Caring Comets. We are proud to be a LEED school and are RAMP certified. We value the process of education and strive to create an innovative and creative learning opportunity for all students. We honor the partnership between our talented staff and supportive families. This collaboration fosters an educational environment of academic excellence.

Community

Our commitment to giving back to our community is reflected in our participation in food drives, a coin collection for the Children’s Hospital of Richmond, a student-led collection for the rehabilitation of injured animals, and many other activities. Our SCA is led by Ms. Madeline Hardy, fourth grade teacher. ​We invite you to be part of our community and the activities that occur throughout the year.

Faculty Recognitions

We were pleased to welcome new faculty for the 2018-2019 school year: Mrs. Byrne, 4th grade teacher; Mrs. Broaddus, part-time school counselor; Officer Leslie Trexler, DARE/SRO; and Mrs. Mullens, principal.

Our 2017-2018 recognitions were: Teacher of the Year, Ms. Linda Bruce and our Support Employee of the Year, Ms. MaLinda Washington. Also congratulations to REB finalist, Mrs. Kimberly Jameson-Dean and RAMP award winner, Ms. Paige Abasolo.

Accomplishments

Thanks to a HEF grant our kindergarten, first, and second grade teams have received BlueBots and a variety of materials to help with engagement, review, and extension. Teachers work collaboratively to create new materials every nine weeks.

Relevance, Equity, Innovation

Groups such as reading ambassadors and STREAM buddies keep students voices heard and help students share in the learning process as they work together. Programs such as the 5th grade Career Cafe and Reading Olympics continue to be part of our offering.

Our PTA supports after school programs with two art clubs, a physical education club, a STEM club, and more on the way!

We continue to develop a culture of literacy with Kersey’s Literacy Month and PAWS to read. Authors such as Marc Tyler Nobleman have visited Kersey Creek presenting to grades k-5 on how to be a history detective and how to find the truth by asking authentic questions. We are also pleased to announce that author Chris Grabenstein will be visiting Kersey Creek this year!

Create, Think, Grow

Learning is always a joyful experience at the Creek. We are very blessed to have a community of teachers, administrators, parents, and business partners who support our mission to create, learn, and grow. ​Join us as we continue to build the rich heritage that is the essence of Hanover County Public Schools.
