Principal's Message


Dear Parents,

Welcome to F. W. Kling Elementary School.  Kling is a wonderful place for students to learn, grow, and make friends.  Our teachers and staff are friendly, caring, and want your child to have a successful academic experience.  We strive to provide the best academic experiences by using the most effective instructional strategies, providing learning outside of the classroom through field trips and guests, and forming personal relationships with our students.   Throughout the school year we will offer a variety of opportunities for students to grow and learn.  We welcome volunteers.  Please let your child’s teacher know in what capacity you would like to volunteer.

If at any time throughout the school year you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me.  Again, we look forward to working with you and your child this school year.


Lisa A. Clark, Ed.D., Principal
