Assistant Principal's Message

Dear parents, staff, students and stakeholders,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I announce that I have accepted the role of Assistant Principal and DK-5 Curriculum Director of both Kenwood and Schalm Elementary. I am honored to accept this role and I am looking forward to assisting Mrs. Sines in reaching our school-wide goals at both Elementary schools.

I have had the privilege of being a part of Clawson Public Schools since 2001 when I completed my student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom. I then taught 4th grade for 1 year followed by 18 years in the kindergarten classroom. I am also currently the coordinator of the Clawson Summer School program Dk-8th grade.

I am proud to be part of such a wonderful community and I look forward to working with you to help grow our students to their fullest potential. Mrs. Sines and I have a great working relationship and will work together with our dedicated staff to make sure we maintain the family feel in both of our buildings.

Outside of school my husband Sylvester and I have two wonderful children, Elaina, 11 and Myles, 10 who both attend Clawson Public schools and a 5 year old black lab/hound Mabel. We spend the majority of our time going to sporting events for our son and gymnastics meets for our daughter. We enjoy any time that we can spend together going on adventures and seeing new places.

I am excited to meet, and to get to know each and everyone of you. If, throughout the course of the year, you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email, or phone call 248-655-3838 or 248-655-4949.

I look forward to working with Mrs. Sines, the staff, and all of our school families to make this great year!

In partnership, Nicole McDonald
