Dear French Creek Families,

It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve as your child’s principal.  The 2020-2021 school year will mark my 13th year as principal of French Creek Elementary.  Throughout my OJR tenure, I have had the opportunity to work with amazing students, an extremely talented staff, and wonderful parents.  My number one priority is to ensure that your child experiences a safe and positive learning environment, which in turn, promotes individual student success.

I am proud to share that French Creek offers students a rigorous curriculum with high academic standards.  Decisions at French Creek are always made in the best interest of children.  We are driven by a philosophy that "What is popular is not always right, and what is right is not always popular, but above all else, we do what is right for our students"!

Please visit our French Creek website and view the short video titled, “What Makes French Creek Special” under “Principal’s Corner” to learn more about our exceptional elementary school.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  As a professional staff, we strive to maintain open lines of communication between home and school at all times. 

Very truly yours,

Dr. Malinda McKillip
