A Message from the Principal:

September 15, 2023

Greetings Kootenai Families,

Wow, what an incredible week it's been! I am having a blast in my role as principal and feel so grateful to have students back in the building and getting settled into their new classrooms!

I want to share some exciting news! This year our teachers agreed that it was important to update our school values (previously known as the “Pirate P’s”) to focus more intentionally as we continuously strive to improve our school community. Further, we

are setting sail with a new motto: 

Pirates, ARR!! A- stands for Always Safe, R- stands for Respectful, and the next R- stands for Responsible. We believe that emphasizing these values will nurture individuals who are responsible, respectful, and safety-conscious, making valuable contributions to both our school and our wider community. We can hardly wait to see the impact it will make throughout our school this year!

Lastly, I want to thank all of you for sharing your amazing children with us! Together, let’s make it an incredible school year!

In gratitude,

Summer Tigert, Principal
