A Message From Principal Gutierrez
August 2, 2022
Welcome W.F. Killip Elementary School students and families to the 2022 – 2023 school year. I am honored to serve as the Principal of Killip. This is an historic school year as we have the opportunity to open a State-of-the-Art educational facility in the Flagstaff Unified School District. We are very thankful to the Community of Flagstaff, as the opportunity for the new school was made possible by the last bond which was approved by the voters of Flagstaff.
We are a COGNIA STEM Certified Academy, providing our students with an integrated curriculum in a Student-Centered Environment. The teaching and learning are focused on Project/Problem Based Learning hands-on activities, in a State-of-the-Art Learning Environment. We offer a 21st Century Community Learning Center Out of School Program at no cost for our students.
We place a high emphasis in building collaborative partnerships with our students and families. It is imperative that we work as a team in preparing our students for academic and social success for the future. We invite you to be an active member of our “Killip Family”. Please feel free to come to the school anytime and observe and participate in the activities with our students.
We are very excited and are looking forward to a fantastic school year. I do have an open-door policy. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you and I look forward to working with you.
