Serving our Littlest Learners

The Johnston Community School District is pleased to have five outstanding PreK-5 elementary schools serving the families in our community. Each school has a highly qualified staff of educators and support staff to meet the needs of all children. Building leaders have extensive practice in the area of preK-5 education, both in the classroom and as administrators.

Below is a list of our elementary building leadership team and how to reach them. Please note that it is not the practice of the Johnston Community School District to redact names or email addresses from general correspondence to the school district. Emails sent to employees of the district will be considered public records under the Iowa Open Records Law and subject to disclosure unless it is a protected student or personnel record, or subject to attorney-client privilege.
