  • Cortina Principal Update: March 26

    Dear Cortina Families:

    In order to provide Cortina with the smoothest transition and with the strongest leadership who already knows the community and students, the district has made the decision to appoint Ms. Kelly Papke as the permanent principal for Cortina Elementary School, effective immediately. Ms. Papke has been an assistant principal at Cortina for five years, and we believe she is the person who can best support the school and community moving forward.

    The district will be conducting a search for a new assistant principal in the upcoming weeks. For the rest of this year, the district has hired Ms. Sophia Patterson, a former teacher within the district with her administration certification and previous administrator experience, to be the interim assistant principal. She will begin tomorrow. We are confident she will be up to speed quickly and be a strong support for Ms. Papke and the school community.

    We are excited to have Ms. Papke in this new position as principal of Cortina Elementary School. We know she will do an excellent job and provide stable leadership for the students, staff, and community. Please join us in welcoming her to this new position.


    Warren Shillingburg, PhD
    Associate Superintendent for Educational Services
