Dear Buckeye Elementary Parents and Community Members:

    It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Kevin Cadden, as the new principal of Buckeye Elementary. I feel truly blessed to be the instructional leader of such an awesome school community. My passion for education and supporting students has been shaped over the past 17 years as a classroom teacher, program coordinator, and principal. I had the opportunity to work at Buckeye during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years. During that time, I fell in love with the school and students and witnessed a deep level of commitment from the entire staff as they worked together to support all students. When Mrs. Moore announced her retirement, I pursued the opportunity to return so that I may continue serving the Buckeye community as the new principal.

    While I plan on keeping the focus on our students reaching their fullest academic potential, I am also going to work hard to ensure that the social emotional needs of our students are fully addressed. Building relationships with students, staff, and families will be a big focus for me as I enter into this new position. I will also be looking for new ways to expand upon the current opportunities so that our kids remain engaged and look forward to coming to school and giving their best every day.

    If I can ever be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to call or email me. We are in this together and your child’s well-being is of the upmost importance to me.  My door will always be open to you. Here’s to many great years together. Go Bobcats!

    Kind regards,

    Mr. Cadden
