Principal Message

It is with great enthusiasm that I join the Elsberry R-II School District! I began my career in Louisiana where I taught 5th grade for 17 years, kindergarten for one year, and was the 4th and 5th grade reading coach for one year. I am thrilled to be joining the great staff in Elsberry for my 20th year in education and am very much looking forward to meeting the students, parents, and community members here in Elsberry.

Whether you are already a member of our school family or are interested in learning more about us as a prospective student, teacher, or parent, I hope this site will enable you to get a glimpse at the enthusiasm and child centered values that define Clarence Cannon Elementary.

At the heart of CCE you will find a commitment to excellence in educating the whole child. Our rich academic programs are grounded in scientific research about how children learn best. The faculty follows the Professional Learning Community model, working systematically to monitor and continuously enrich our curricular and instructional practices. We are also a proud Lighthouse School, dedicated to helping every child cultivate strong leadership skills. Dr. Stephen Covey’s The “Leader in Me” is a foundational piece of that collective commitment.

I invite you to stop by, introduce yourself, and experience firsthand the remarkable students, teachers, and staff at CCE. 

Yours in Education,

Tracy L. Kingsley, Ed.S.
