Our Principal's Welcome

  • Karen JonesDear Flynn Park Parents, Caregivers and Community:

    I am delighted to join the Flynn Park Elementary School family as the interim principal for the 2023-2024 school year. Flynn Park was built on a foundation of love and is known for its dedication to excellence. I aim to honor tradition and continue excellence by building off the rich legacy that has shaped Flynn Park into the unique and thriving school it is today. It is my goal to continue the tradition with resilience, intentionality, transparency and with a spirit of collaboration.

    As an educator for over 28 years, I have served in many capacities, including the past 19 years as a network superintendent and elementary school principal. I look forward to leveraging those leadership experiences and knowledge gained to ensure that Flynn Park scholars receive every resource necessary to set them up for their future successes. I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to lead an amazing community of elementary-age scholars while partnering with parents and the school community. You play a key role in the academic success of our scholars; therefore, school/parent communication is crucial. We encourage you to be actively engaged in your child’s education by talking to your child about school, volunteering when possible, attending school events and participating in our School Collaborative (similar to a PTO). Together we will work to provide a quality learning environment that meets your child’s academic, social and emotional needs.

    I am grateful to serve with the devoted administrative leadership team, faculty and staff to achieve our vision:

    As successful life-long learners and productive citizens of high morals, we work to our fullest potential to make a positive difference in the world. Flynn Park is a school dedicated to providing a safe, positive, respectful place for students to learn each and every day.

    I look forward to being your partner in education to ensure that all of our scholars succeed as they embark on an amazing school year. Together we will make the 2023-2024 school year the best!


    In service of children,

    Karen M. Jones
