A Message from Our Principal

Dear KMBE Bobcat Families,

Welcome to Katherine Mecham Barney Elementary School - Where Everyone Has Genius! I am excited and honored to be a Bobcat. My dedication has been to the education of children for more than 20 years. My passion is for children and their academic and emotional growth.

It is important to me to create an environment where everyone feels safe—safe to learn, safe to step outside of our comfort zones, and safe to make choices that better our community. My door is always open. Please feel free to stop by, call, or email.

Sincerely, 

Chasity Cruz
