Elementary Principal 2022-23

The USD 350 Board of Education has approved a two-year contract for Mrs. Angela Petersen to perform the duties of elementary principal starting in the 2022-23 school year.  The principal duties have been covered by Superintendent, Josh Meyer for the past six years.  In order to support the staff and meet the needs of students, the Board determined that a separate position for elementary principal is once again required.


Mrs. Petersen taught 4th, 5th, and 6th graders for ten years in classrooms at Ellinwood Grade School. She then served for three years as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for USD 355. Currently, she works with teachers and students in grades K-6 as an Instructional Technology Specialist and Library Director for Park and Jefferson Elementary Schools in USD 428: Great Bend Public Schools. Mrs. Petersen holds degrees from Bethany College and Fort Hays State University.


The Petersen family is eager to become a part of the communities of St. John and Hudson. Joining her will be her husband, Matt, who is a Captain with the Great Bend Fire Department, her daughter, Willa, who will be in first grade, and her two-year-old son Crosby. Mrs. Petersen can't wait to get to know all of our amazing students and families. She knows that together we will achieve great things!


Mrs. Petersen will start her official duties on August 1st, but she will be spending some time over the next few months visiting classrooms and meeting with staff and students.  We know that Angela will be a great fit on our leadership team and will help USD 350 continue to improve and grow.
