Michelle Pieniazek, M.Ed.
Dear Bobcat Family:

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Krum High School, welcome.  Whether this is your first or final year at KHS, we are excited to see our new and returning students.  As a Krum alumnus, it is incredibly humbling to have accepted the responsibility once held by some of my educational heroes.  I am proud to be a Krum Bobcat, and believe wholeheartedly in our district, as well as the leaders it produces.

Krum ISD has certainly changed in the years since I was a student. Our population has more than doubled, and we have added many new opportunities for student involvement, all while maintaining high expectations for excellence in scholarship, leadership and service to others. It has been exciting to witness this progression, and to prepare for an even brighter future.

In case we have not yet met, I wanted to share a little of my background with you.  I received my Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M University and my Masters of Education from Texas Woman’s University.  The 2020-2021 school year will be my 23rd as an educator.  Prior to joining Krum ISD, I taught agricultural science at Sanger High School and Marcus High School. However, for the past seventeen years, I have proudly served in Krum ISD as a teacher, assistant principal and principal.

Krum High School's faculty and staff are committed to providing rigorous and authentic instruction in order to prepare our students to be competitive in their post-secondary endeavors. In addition to the pursuit of excellence in academics, we highly encourage your son or daughter to become engaged in the “other education.”  Whether your student enjoys Art, Athletics, Band, Cheerleading, Choir, FCCLA, FFA, Key Club, NHS, Student Council, Theater, UIL or Yearbook– there’s something for everyone!  Extracurricular activities enhance theory, facilitate leadership skills, offer real-world experiences and scholarship opportunities.  Most importantly, active participation helps students gain experience in handling success, as well as disappointments.

As partners in your student’s education, it is our desire to keep the lines of communication open.  We utilize several communication tools via the website and social media; as well as weekly newsletters.  We also welcome parental involvement on our campus.  In addition to the PTO, most of our extracurricular groups offer parent organizations for you to become involved.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to working with you and your son or daughter throughout the school year.  

Go Bobcats!
