House Named New PME Principal

Peaks Mill Elementary Principal Selected

Cassie House named principal of Peaks Mill Elementary School

Frankfort, Ky, April 25, 2019 –Franklin County Schools Supt. Mark Kopp announced today that Cassie House will be the new principal of Peaks Mill Elementary School. House will replace Dana Blankenship, who is retiring on June 30 after six years as principal of Peaks Mill.

"We are very excited to welcome Cassie House as the new principal at Peaks Mill Elementary School. Her energetic leadership, belief in fostering a culture of high expectations, and her knowledge of the students, staff, and parents of Peak Mill Elementary will serve her well as principal. We are confident Cassie has what it takes to lead Peaks Mill to even greater heights" said Kopp.

House, a resident of Frankfort, has spent her entire 8-year career as an educator working for Franklin County Schools. She began her career in July of 2011 as an Elementary teacher at Collins Lane Elementary School. She has been the Elementary Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Coach at Peaks Mill Elementary since July 2017.

“Over the past two years I have had the opportunity to serve alongside the amazing Peaks Mill staff. I have seen firsthand the hard work and dedication they have for our students and I am thrilled to continue our journey together. Being a Franklin County girl this is a dream job to have the opportunity to serve the families in our community” said House. “I have had incredible role models to learn from throughout my education career in Franklin County; educators who have inspired me with their passion and commitment to growing learners. Mrs. Blankenship has been an open book for me to learn from and I have tried to soak up as much as I can before she retires. I will forever be grateful for her coaching and support. I am excited to continue the work that is happening and to carve out new ways for us to continue growing as a team.”

Dana Blankenship, the outgoing principal, joined Peaks Mill in 2013. She is retiring after 33 years in education, including stints in Menifee County Schools and most recently with Franklin County Schools.

Blankenship said of House’s appointment, “When I announced my retirement to the staff, I asked them to find a new principal who will continue the work we have been doing. Someone who recognized the needs of our PME students and community and will hold high expectations. And someone who loves these students as much as I do. Cassie House is the perfect choice to lead Peaks Mill Elementary. She embodies all of those qualities and will work hard for the students and staff success.”

Wonder

5th Grade Students holding the book WonderMrs. Heacock extended the bully prevention campaign that started with Red Ribbon Week by gifting all Peaks Mill fifth graders with the book Wonder. Each student received their own copy to add to their home library. The fifth grade teachers also incorporated the book into their classroom. Mrs. Heacock also sponsored a field trip for the fifth grade, their teachers and other Peaks Mill Staff to attend the movie based on the book. The students and staff were able to see the book come to life and as an extension of their class reading were able to compare the book to the movie. 
 
An important part of the Family Resource Center is providing extra learning activities for our students; with this activity more than one FRYSC component (Literacy, Educational Support and Health Services) was met, showing the range of what FRYSC does for our schools.

Peaks Mill Gives Back: Helping Texas

Here at Peaks Mill we want to take time to teach our student the importance of giving back even to those who we do not know and will never know. After the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey Peaks Mill joined together and started a diaper drive, we accepted diapers from infant sizes to adult sizes. Over the two weeks that we collected diapers, we were able to send 4,372 diapers to Texas. A local church and the Frankfort Christian Academy transported our collection, demonatrating what community truly is.
