Campus Goals

Keith Elementary is a caring community which promotes academic excellence, fosters social and emotional growth, and promotes healthy lifestyles for all students. Students' behavior will exemplify respect for others, accountability for actions and good citizenship. Our goal is to provide children educational opportunities to insure that each child becomes a contributing and responsible member of society in the 21st century.

She opened Frazier Elementary as its principal and later became principal of Campbell Middle School before retiring in June 2002.

PTO

The Keith PTO meets monthly. This non-profit, volunteer organization funds cultural arts activities and field trips, organizes volunteers, sponsors various student events, and conducts fundraisers. Money raised enables the PTO to aid the school in providing technology, landscaping, books, playground equipment, and recently a running track which is also accessible outside of school hours for use by the local community.

The PTO website is a one stop shop where you can view and sign up for volunteer opportunities and purchase spirit items, too!
