Principal's Message

Richard Stephens

Welcome Hannan Trace Families!

I want to welcome you to a new school year filled with adventure, opportunities, and excitement.  As your principal, it is my pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to provide an educational experience that supports each student and allows them to grow and learn.


My vision for Hannan Trace Elementary School is to establish an environment where students are inspired and motivated to become lifelong learners and individuals that care for others.  Our goal is to provide a nurturing and engaging environment that meets each students' academic, social, and emotional needs.


Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a critical role in the academic, social, and emotional development of our students.  Working together, we can make a proactive difference.  Strong partnerships between home and school promote greater success for our children.  Parents are invited to become involved in the Hannan Trace PTO.  This organization supports our vision by working with our students and staff.  It is also a great way to get your ideas heard.  I encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to create a successful collaborative partnership.  One way this is achieved is through “Remind”. This is an app that is downloaded and direct messages can be shared between home and school.


I am excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment.  I welcome any ideas, questions, or concerns you may have- just give me a call or send me an email.  


Again, welcome to Hannan Trace Elementary School….where it’s a great day to be a WILDCAT!


Mrs. Richard Stephens
