Principal's Message

  • Kathy Jenkins Dear Lucas Elementary family,

    It is with great anticipation and humility that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new principal of Lucas Elementary School for the 2018–19 school year. I am honored to have been selected to serve and look forward to meeting each of you.

    On a personal note, I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, and come from a very large family. On a professional note, I am beginning my eighteenth year as an educator, and this will be my fifth year as a principal. I spent approximately eight years as an assistant principal, and prior to that, I was an early childhood educator for five years.

    I am a graduate of Depaul University in Chicago, Illinois. I completed my bachelor’s degree in communications in 2000, dual master degrees in elementary education/early childhood in 2005, and my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership in 2013.

    I am so excited to join the Lucas team and to get the year started. See you soon!

    Sincerely,

    Kathy Jenkins, Ed.D.
