A big thank you to all of our Kling Students who sang this past Sunday at the Paxton House.  You sang great.  Our next performance is this Thursday, December 5th.  Kling students will join with the PMHS choir and PMMS music students to sing Christmas carols at the Ramsey Center after the Buena Vista Christmas Parade.  Students are asked to come to the Ramsey Center as soon as the parade ends.  A fun time will be had by all as the students sing, hot chocolate is served, and Santa makes a visit.

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
