Pre-K – 6th Grade

My name is Jennifer Thompson and I am the new Principal for the PK-6th grade program at CSDB.  I have recently moved here from New Mexico, where I have been an administrator for 10+ years. I have a BS in Signed Language Interpreting and a MA in Early Childhood Multi-cultural Special Education.  I love being a Principal, and I am thrilled to be part of the CSDB family.  I am getting to know your students and am excited for the opportunities I have to get in the classrooms and see what the students are working on.

I am happy to see the students working on their academics as well as focusing on our P.R.I D.E (Positive Attitude, Respect, Independence, Determination and Excellence).  This month we are working on 2 essential rules:  Say thank you when given something and cleaning up after yourself.  When your children are at home, help us to reinforce the two life skills.
