Welcome to Another School Year

Welcome to another school year!
My name is Beverly Kokrine. I have been a teacher for over twenty years in the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District. I recently served as a School Leadership Intern at three different schools. Last year, I was the assistant principal at Arctic Light Elementary and Ticasuk Brown Elementary. I am very excited to be your principal this year! I was a teacher in this very building for 14 years. I am familiar with the community. My own children have attended school here!
I look forward to meeting more people at the Pastries for Parents on September 13, Friday. You and your child may have breakfast here starting at 8:00 A.M.

Greetings Fellow Ptarmigans!  
I am absolutely thrilled to be your Assistant Principal for the 2019/2020 school year.  My name is Kelly Thrun and I bring to you 22 years of elementary school experience.  I am a proud Alaskan, born and raised in Nome.  I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 5th and 6th grades, parenting classes, professional development sessions, and a UAF class prior to working as an assistant principal last year at Crawford, Midnight Sun, and North Pole Elementary.  I have my AAS in Early Childhood, BA / Masters in Elementary Education and a graduate certificate in Educational Leadership.  I am the mother of three children, eldest sister of four siblings, and just celebrated my 23rd wedding anniversary to my extremely supportive husband.  I look forward to meeting each of you and figuring out what ways I can support all of the great work that you do.  See you soon!
