Superintendent Message

Good afternoon,

To say that I have been slammed is an understatement! I am very thankful that Erich Bolz is now at the elementary helping Lisa in administration. That is awesome; as many of you know he started his teaching at Ki-Be Elementary, so I told him that absolutely nothing has changed in our facility since he left!

I will be finalizing staffing for the district this week and have already spoken with many of you who may be requesting a move or a move is necessitated due to student count or ESSER fund elimination. We had a meeting with Jennifer and Edna in late April so that we all know the appropriate provisions of the contract that apply and both agree on the process.

We have baseball, fast-pitch, track and tennis all moving into playoffs, so if you get a chance to get out and support them, please do it. The kids and parents really appreciate seeing you at events!

If you need anything, don't hesitate to call x2001 or my cell at 308-5052 or 539-0039.

Have a great week!

- Pete

Staff Member in Focus: Erich Bolz

It is my absolute pleasure and honor to serve as Interim Vice Principal at Ki-Be Elementary for the remainder of the school year (if substitute is a more acceptable term, feel free to insert it and also, please alter or truncate to best serve your purpose).

It is a special opportunity for me, as I started my career in public education at Ki-Be Elementary and Middle in 1995. Mrs. Upton was one of my students in my first year and later we were colleagues in Pasco School District, where I retired in 2020.

I look forward to supporting Mrs. Upton, the children, staff, and families, and wider school community in the coming month. I would love to have the opportunity to meet you and don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of service.

Educationally yours!

Erich Bolz- Interim Vice Principal, Ki-Be Elementary
