Principal's Message

JoAnna Jones

This school year is going to be awesome at Cumberland Trace Elementary! We have a strong, dedicated staff that is committed to helping every child grow and develop their love for learning. We believe all of our students have the right to learn in a safe, caring atmosphere with a strong focus on a rigorous curriculum, which allows many opportunities for our students to excel! At Cumberland Trace Elementary, we are "Learning as much as we can to be the BEST that we can be!" We are proud to share that our school has been recognized as a "School of Distinction" by the Kentucky Department of Education. 

We are a Leader in Me Lighthouse School and will contintue incorporating "The Leader in Me" philosophy to help our students internalize the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People developed by Dr. Stephen Covey. The seven habits are:

  • Be Proactive
  • Begin With the End in Mind
  • Put First Things First
  • Think Win-Win
  • Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
  • Synergize
  • Sharpen the Saw

The Leader in Me process fosters the development of 21st century skills and allows each child to nuture and develop their own individual leadership style. Leadership notebooks, school-wide jobs, and leadership days provide opprotunities for our students to take charge of their own learning, monitor their progress, and take active roles within our school family. 

I am blessed to be a part of our CTE family and believe this is a great place to be! I look forward to great year of learning at Cumberland Trace Elementary, where we begin with the end in mind to educate tomorrow's leaders. 

JoAnna Jones, Principal
