Welcome to Sundance 2024-2025!

Dear Sundance Elementary School Staff and Families,

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the start of summer break. My name is Jennie Mikels, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as your new principal. It is truly an honor to join the Sundance Elementary community, and I am eager to embark on this journey with you.

Over the past 30 years in education, I have had the privilege of serving in various roles, including teaching at the elementary and middle school levels, acting as an instructional coach, and most recently, as principal at Westwood Elementary School in the Poway Unified School District. My experience has taught me the value of collaboration and open communication in creating exceptional educational experiences for students.

At Sundance Elementary, I am committed to fostering an environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. I believe in the power of a supportive community where each voice is heard and respected. Together, we will continue to prioritize high-level student achievement while also nurturing personal growth and a strong sense of self for our students.

I am eager to meet each of you and to begin building strong, supportive relationships. Please feel free to visit my office to introduce yourself, share your thoughts, or simply say hello. Your input and insights are invaluable as we work together to create a positive and enriching school experience for our students.

Thank you for welcoming me into the Sundance Elementary family. I am excited about the opportunities ahead and look forward to working collaboratively with you to achieve great things for our students and our community.

Warm regards,

Ms. Jennie Mikels
Sundance Elementary School
