Principal's Message

Mrs. HawkinsIt is with great TIGER PRIDE that I welcome you back to the 2020-2021 school year as your new principal! Recently retired principal, Mrs. Anna Jones, her administrative team and the wonderful faculty & staff have set AES on a path of great success. I am honored to continue this work during the second semester for the benefit of our students & community; even in the midst of these unprecedented times.

Arlington is a great place to do life; as our family has called this home for over a decade. My husband and I are proud parents of two Arlington Community Schools’ graduates. We love the small-town, close-knit community and family feel of Arlington. Arlington Elementary School is a perfect example of living in community, serving others and promoting growth for students & staff.

My educational career began in 1996 at Immanuel Lutheran School, followed by Altruria Elementary in 1998 until joining Arlington Elementary in 2008. I’m thrilled to have been a part of the history of AES and humbled to contribute to the future of this amazing school. Let’s go TIGERS!
