Principal's Corner

Principal's Message

Welcome to STES!  I am honored to have the opportunity to be the principal of a wonderful group of students and families.  We have a strong, dedicated staff that is committed to helping every child grow and develop their love for learning.  We believe all our students have the right to learn in a safe, caring atmosphere with a strong focus on a rigorous curriculum, which allows many opportunities for our students to excel.

Aligned with our focus on academics, we are also striving to build leadership and citizenship by being a visible learning school which helps our students develop important 21st century skills such as respect, responsibility, self-discipline, confidence, and communication skills that they need to succeed in school and in their future careers. 

The future of South Todd Elementary School is bright!  I am confident the students will continue to grow and achieve as we work to maintain the high standard of excellence set forth by their teachers and parents. We are very proud of the South Todd school community and welcome your participation as we prepare our future leaders!

Go Cardinals!


Doug Cotton, Principal South Todd Elementary
