Principal's Message

Principal
Hello Johnson Families,
I am so excited for the 2018-2019 school year! This will be my second year as principal here at Johnson Elementary. The dedication of our staff and students truly shows their commitment to learning. We will be undergoing construction in the near future to update our beloved campus. Many thanks go to our parents and community members who helped to start this dusty journey!

To begin, Johnson Elementary is a quaint, neighborhood school that began educating students in 1923 and has built a tradition of excellence which continues to this day.  We are a NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED U.S. Department of Education BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL, currently in the top 5% of the 733 Kentucky Elementary Schools. Johnson Alumni include screenwriter Chuck Pogue, award winning illustrator and National Geographic artist Greg Manchess, artist Mike Glier, Kentucky Hall of Fame Member Jaime Richey, and University of Louisville Women’s Head Basketball Coach Jeff Walz.   
 
We provide a safe, orderly, family environment where our students can grow and learn.  We also provide enrichment to those students who need additional challenges, remediation for those times when a student does not understand a concept, and many opportunities for our students to develop their natural talents (Studio Art, Chorus, Student Technology Leadership Program, 5th Grade Leadership Team, Chess Club, Drama Club, and Academic Team). 

However, we do not do this alone.  The success of our students is directly related to the dedication and exceptional quality of our faculty and staff, supportive parents who understand that a quality education begins at home, and students who are willing to accept the challenge of hard work. The Johnson staff and parents work together to ensure the best possible future for our children and we do this through consistent commitment and communication.
 
Currently, Johnson Elementary consists of a pre-school program, full-day and ½ day kindergarten, as well as grades one through five. Our staff of 58 experienced professionals has adopted the district vision to provide our 400 students with experiences that include Creative and Critical Thinking, Cooperative Decision Making, and a Collaborative Spirit all provided in a positive and supportive environment.
 
We are excited by the UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES available to the students of Johnson Elementary and we are extremely proud of the accomplishments of our students, staff, and PTO. Johnson Elementary – Rich in Tradition, Committed to the Future!
 
Looking forward to making more memories here at Johnson,
Ashley Dikeos
