Mrs. Konnie Fry
Hello. My name is Mrs. Fry, and I am proud to be the Sherrard Elementary Principal. I am now in my third year in this position, and I love it more and more with every passing day. Prior to being at the elementary school, I was Dean Of Students at SHS for two years, and for three years Principal at Tampico Elementary in Tampico Illinois. I taught many grade levels for 12 years prior to entering the world of educational leadership. I have a wide range of experience, and love for what I do. I work with some of the most amazing and hard working staff I have had the privilege to know. Our students are among the best in the state of Illinois and make me proud every day.
At Sherrard Elementary, we believe that Students Are Our Focus. That is shown daily with rigorous and meaningful learning experiences. We also strive to ensure that behaviors and academics are aligned. We believe that for our 270 Knd. - 4th grade students to focus and learn, behaviors must be respectful to themselves and others.
Sherrard Elementary is an exciting place to learn and grow. Along with academic and behavior expectations we add a great deal of fun to the learning. We celebrate our grandparents with a breakfast every year, walk in the Homecoming parade, honor our Veterans on Veterans Day, have a wonderful holiday program, three holiday class parties, celebrate Dr. Seuss with Read Across America, career day, awards day, field day, field trips, and so much more.
Call the school if you would like to have lunch with your child or grandchild or just to visit a classroom. Together, we are making a big difference and helping our children grow as great learners and future leaders.
