Principal's Message

Welcome to Kasson-Mantorville Middle School.   My name is Michelle Krell, and I am very proud to be the principal of Kasson-Mantorville Middle School.  I feel honored to be part of such a wonderful school system with a tremendous reputation for providing a quality education for students.  The staff constantly seeks new and innovative ways to make school exciting and relevant for our students.  K-M Middle School has a fine tradition of academic excellence.  We are committed to helping each student develop academically, socially, emotionally and physically in a safe and welcoming school environment that includes parents as partners in the learning process. 
As a learning community, I believe that building lasting, authentic, student-centered relationships is key to the success of our students. As an instructional leader, I believe no significant learning happens without significant relationships.
Students will thrive on relevant, engaging real-world learning opportunities where innovation, collaboration and creativity are incorporated.  I believe it is important to teach students to Dream Big and Work Hard.
I look forward to working with you.  With my “open door” policy, I think you will find me to be open, honest and compassionate.  I look forward to earning your trust and respect.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
In Partnership,
Michelle Krell
