Dear Parents and Guardians,

Karl Unger Portrait
Principal Karl Unger – email: karl.unger@kckps.org

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Benjamin Banneker Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! I have been dedicated to the field of education for sixteen years. I have worked with a variety of students ranging in age from Kindergarten through Middle School. My most recent administrative experience was in Houston Independent School in Houston, Texas, where I served in Leadership in a K-8 public school. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Banneker Elementary School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the vision of Excellence by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives, Kansas Academic Standards, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students’ achievement.

All of us at Benjamin Banneker Elementary School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Banneker Elementary School meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Best Regards,
Karl Unger, M.Ed
