  • Dear Kangaroo Families,  

    carlisle Welcome to the opening of what promises to be a wonderful school year!  On behalf of the South Kilbourne Elementary Faculty and Staff, it is my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2016 - 2017 school year.

    As an innovative educator, I believe we need to inspire learners to follow their passions by creating customized learning experiences based on student interests. South Kilbourne Elementary is destined for amazing things. The gifts and talents of our students combined with the dedication and passion of our teachers allows us to create a diverse learning community where all students are pushed to maximize their potential.

    As a new member of the South Kilbourne family, I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself.  I have worked extensively in education since 2000.  My roles have included elementary teacher, technology specialist, assistant principal, and principal.

    Throughout the year I look forward to meeting the new members of our community and connecting with returning community members.  It is my sincere hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in activities through the PTA and many classroom programs.  Together teachers, students, and parents make a strong South Kilbourne Family.  Working together as a team, we will continue to inspire our young kangaroos.

    I am looking forward to an exciting and successful year at South Kilbourne Elementary as we embody “Kangaroo Pride”.   If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (803) 738-7215.

    Yours in the Service of Learners,

    Samantha Carlisle
