Mrs. Kristick

Welcome to Cleveland Elementary School, Home of the Super Bees!

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Cleveland Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition that has produced so many outstanding students.

During these past few weeks, I have had many interactions with parents, teachers and students. From these conversations, it is clear there is a deep pride and commitment of all stakeholders to provide the best possible academic experience for our students. I look forward to building these relationships and working with teachers and staff to provide a world-class educational experience for each child.

I have been working with students for more than sixteen years with a specific focus in reading, math, and special education. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to Cleveland Elementary and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

Along with teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Cleveland by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will focus on academics, positive behavior, and providing educational opportunities for students outside of school. Partnerships with the Horizon After School Program, the Bluewater YMCA, and the Port Huron Prowlers are just some of these opportunities.

All of us at Cleveland Elementary School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. This year is going to "Bee" super as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant and builds relationships. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors—teachers, students and parents—are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment. 

My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

I feel truly fortunate to be the instructional leader of such an awesome school community.

Michelle Kristick, Principal
Cleveland Elementary School
