WATCH: Northwest Elementary Pick Up/Drop Off Procedures
The Board approved new attendance zones that will go into effect when Northwest elementary opens. A map and additional information about these zones can be found on the link below. Jenks Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Stacey Butterfield stated, "Much research and careful consideration has gone into determining where these lines have been drawn. We believe the new configuration is going to assist us in managing our growing enrollment."
Northwest Elementary will be the fourth elementary school site and will serve students in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. It will also be the first elementary site in the District with a STEM Learning Lab. "This is an exciting time in our District and we are looking forward to continuing the tradition of excellence expected by all in the Jenks community," says Dr. Butterfield.
Meet the Principal
When Northwest Elementary opens its doors for the first time in August 2017, Lynette Talkington will bring 23 years of education experience to her role as the school’s first Site Principal. Talkington is currently serving as a Building Principal at Southeast Elementary. During her time as an administrator at Southeast, Talkington has helped develop annual Literacy Night, Math Nights, and Health Fairs, while also serving as supervisor for the Behavioral Intervention Study Team and overseeing the Committee for Safe Schools and Health and Wellness. Talkington started her teaching career at Southgate Elementary in Moore, Oklahoma and spent two years as an elementary teacher in Houston, Texas, before arriving at Jenks East Elementary in 1999. She is a graduate of Oklahoma State University and holds a Master of Education from the University of Central Oklahoma. Talkington and her husband Brian have three children, Olivia, Luke, and Lucy.
“Northwest Elementary is going to be an amazing place for kids to learn and grow, and I’m truly looking forward to serving our students and staff members in the role of Site Principal,” Talkington stated. “As I approach my final year at Southeast, I want to say how much I appreciate Lindy Risenhoover, our teachers, students, and parents for their encouragement and support. I feel so fortunate to be a part of Jenks Public Schools and I want to thank our leadership for providing me with this incredible opportunity.”
