Ferson Creek

July 2017

The 2017-2018 school year is upon us, and I am honored to join you in my second year as the instructional leader at Ferson Creek Elementary School. This year marks the start of my 22nd year in the field of education having served as a special education teacher & administrator and building principal.  

As many of you know, my husband Chris and I live in Oak Park with our two children. Our daughter Emma is fourteen and our son Henry is seven. Over the last several weeks, Emma embraced her transition to Oak Park River Forest (OPRF) High School, where she will be a freshman this fall, through participation in an introductory photography class. In addition, she recently served as assistant stage manager for multiple productions at her former middle school. Henry continues to enjoy a flexible schedule of visiting the pool & various parks, playing ice hockey, exploring books at the library, and playing the piano.

In recent weeks, several staff members have participated in embedded professional learning opportunities; class placements have been reviewed; and a handful of new and returning students and staff have stopped in for a visit. This month, I will be working closely with the Building Leadership Team (BLT) in final preparation for the start of the school year. Our work together will serve as a guide to our continued work with the entire learning community throughout the school year. 

I look forward to continuing to grow with the Ferson Creek Learning Community in the coming weeks. Please feel free to contact me via email at

My best,

Kelly Sculles
