Letter from the Principal

Greetings! This message is coming from the desk of Michael Grenda, Principal of A.J. Katzenmaier Elementary School. A.J. Katzenmaier proudly serves grades three through five and we work under our District’s mission to prepare all students for success in college, careers and global citizenship.


Aside from pushing rigorous academics, AJK is very defined when it comes to attendance and behavior. Our attendance expectations are that all students are in school on average, ninety-five percent of the time. We also have a ranking system in regards to our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) system where students can move up in rank quarterly based off of three measures; Academics, Attendance and Behavior. Our goal is that all students come in as cadets but leave at the end of the year a Knight. We are always here to serve the students and community in which we work.

Warm Regards,
