Principal's Message

Mary TownesGreetings! 

Welcome to the 2023–2024 school year! I am so thrilled about all the great teaching and learning that this year will bring for our Comets! I love learning, and I never tire of watching our teachers use innovative ways to engage our students. I am grateful to serve such an involved and supportive community that cares deeply about the success and growth of our school. I welcome your support and partnership as we continue to focus on meeting the needs of each student every day.

At Kersey, we pride ourselves in providing a safe and nurturing environment for our students where everyone feels a sense of belonging. As we know, when students feel safe and cared for, there are positive implications for their academic progress. Last year, our students enjoyed our first year of implementation of the House System. We enjoyed seeing their faces light up as they walked through the doors on unity days and their team spirit on pep rally days. This year will be even more inspiring as we debut our new student Heads of House while incorporating more components of the House System in our daily instruction.

Our theme for this year is Six Houses, One Family: Champions Learn Here! We will continue to model and recognize our students with house points for being respectful, responsible, trustworthy, kind, and empathetic, all while showing integrity throughout our school community. These traits are aligned to our houses and are also great traits of a champion! We want our students to feel like champions each and every day as they learn and grow.

As principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your feedback. Please feel free to email me or call at (804) 723-3440 to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help move our school forward!

Please be sure you are signed up to receive messages from Hanover County Public Schools and our weekly Comet Connection to stay informed of all the great things happening. You can sign up online.
