Meet the Principal

Welcome to Banner Elementary School, home of the Bobcats! It is a privilege and honor to serve as Principal of such an exciting community of learners where we have created a tradition of academic excellence. Banner Elementary is one of five elementary schools in the Dunlap Community School District #323. Currently, we house approximately 390 Kindergarten – 5th grade students. In addition, Banner houses the District's Life Skills programs.

“Engaging all learners to prepare them for the 21st Century” is our primary mission. The Banner staff is dedicated to creating a quality learning environment dedicated to continuous improvement. Check out our School Improvement tab for more information on continuous improvement.

We adhere to and practice with students the following expectations:

~Follow directions quickly.
~Keep hands, feet, and other objects to yourself.
~Speak kindly.

*Because it is NEVER okay to be hurtful, and

*Because it is NEVER okay to be disruptive.
