A Message from the Principal

  • Dear 16th and Haak Families,

    It gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your child to 16th and Haak Elementary School for the 2023-2024 school year! The beginning of the school year is one of our favorite times, and we can’t wait to embark on a new year full of relationship-building, exciting experiences, and hands-on learning. Our teachers and staff are ready to greet incoming students—we can’t wait to see their smiling faces again and welcome our new students into the Red Knight family. At 16th and Haak Elementary School our goal is to provide a high-quality education in a space where everyone feels safe, cared for, appreciated, and understood. Students love to learn, and we believe that all students can achieve at high levels. We are committed to ensuring every student has access to a high-quality education and will experience continuous growth.

    Traci Webb, M.Ed.
