Meet the Principal at Paddock Lane: Mrs. Replogle
It is my great pleasure to serve as the principal of Paddock Lane Elementary for 31 years. The excitement of working with children and their families is as strong today as it was my very first day. As a former graduate of Beatrice Public Schools I know and have experienced personally the importance our community places on education as well as the strong support our school system receives from our families and our business community. As a member of the business community through the ownership of Sunrise Bakery, my family has continued for over 65 years to support education in our community. As a family we have great pride in the fact that three generations are graduates of Beatrice Public Schools.
As the principal of Paddock Lane I believe my responsibilities go beyond the academic education of our students. Though as a building staff we take great pride in our academic achievements, we also focus on the social and emotional growth of our students. I believe it is our responsibility to serve as role models to our children. Our actions speak volumes to our children. Children need to feel safe and secure at school, and I believe it is my responsibility to see that the atmosphere at Paddock Lane gives our children that feeling of support. Making a difference every day to every child is not only a district motto, it is a firm belief of mine. For many children the best part of their day are the hours they spend at school with their friends and teachers; I want all children to share in the joy of learning and growing in a positive, enriched atmosphere.
