St. Paul welcomes new principal
Sunday, January 27, 2019
With a new principal at the helm, St. Paul Lutheran School is looking to provide more child care for the area, and more science/technology/math training for its own students in the coming year.
Barb Kozisek has been at her new position since July, working three days a week for the school.
Kozisek is excited about offering day care because of the need in the area.
“We did add wrap-around care for our 4-year-old preschool,” she said. “We do have that option for our parents, so they don’t have to worry about the transportation issue.”
Parents can now let their 4-year-olds stay all day at the school Monday, Wednesday and Friday, picking them up at 5:30 p.m. so they don’t have to get them to another day care.
“Our goal next year is to expand that out for 2-year-olds through 4- and 5-year-olds,” Kozisek said. “That preschool age. And that will be five days a week.”
The day care would be open to any parent in the community who wishes to enroll their child, she said.
It could potentially locate in a spacious area in the church basement. The goal would be to open the day care this fall.
Kozisek and her husband Scott Kozisek live in Garner, where he’s a pastor at a Lutheran church.
Before she came to St. Paul, Kozisek was the school counselor at Belmond-Klemme for grades seven through 12.
