Mrs. Groark's Message

Picture of two trees with a saying in the middle,
It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Principal of Cranberry Pines Elementary School. Every time I walk through the doors of Cranberry Pines, I am overwhelmed with excitement, wonder, and enthusiasm! I am incredibly impressed by the strong sense of community and friendship here and am extremely proud to call Cranberry Pines my home. We truly are a family and we cannot wait for your little ones to join us each and every year.

In my over 15 years in education, I have always held true to a few beliefs: children are our most precious natural resource and promise of a bright future. They are a gift and it is our honorable job to nurture them, fill them with praise, and relentlessly find ways to inspire them to flourish. This work is the most important work on the planet.
My mission as Principal of Cranberry Pines is to ensure that your children receive the best educational experiences possible during their time with us. I look forward to taking care of your family this school year and building life-enriching relationships in the years to come. I promise that I will work to ensure your children feel tolerance, encouragement, praise, fairness, security, approval, acceptance, friendship, and love at Cranberry Pines, as if they are my own children.

Please know that I am always available and you are welcome to reach out with any concerns or ideas. I greatly value the opinions of my students and their families as we continue to make Cranberry Pines even more amazing.
Here's to an awe-inspiring school year!
Kristin Groark
