  • Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  I am looking forward to a wonderful and rewarding school year at John D. Spicer Elementary (JDSE).  A new year is a time to reflect and to count our blessings for being able to return to school and learn together.  Thankfully, our students are resilient, and our teachers have been busy preparing and planning. They are up for the task! 

     Spicer is a school rich in the tradition of excellence where children are the focus.   I am very impressed with the professionalism and dedication of our staff, the parental support and the students' hunger for learning My hope is that our school atmosphere continues to be that of a warm, caring, and welcoming environment for everyone.  

     It is the goal at Spicer to provide students with the best possible education that will prepare them for College and Career, in a safe and secure learning environment. Our teachers continue to dedicate themselves by preparing and delivering the best individualized lessons for their students. By delivering the quality education that Spicer is known for, our staff brings out the very best in each of our students. Everyone succeeds because our expectations are high and a high-quality education prepares our students for a very bright future. 

     I look forward to an outstanding year of watching your children flourish. Please remember that you are your child's first teacher. The most successful schools are those with the most active and supportive parents.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. My door is always open to my Spicer Family and community. 


    Educationally yours,

    Rose Clark Kebe, M. ED.
