New Principal Announcement

February 27, 2020

Dear Prairie Hills Elementary Learning Community,

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to your new principal, Ms. Stephanie Auday, who will begin serving you next school year.  

Stephanie brings more than 20 years of experience in education to her new role as the next principal of Prairie Hills Elementary. She has served the Five Star School District as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal and, for the past seven years, principal of Skyview Elementary.

I sincerely thank all of the students, staff and families for their engagement in the principal selection process. The input provided, via the Traits and Characteristics Survey and the staff/community Meet the Candidate events, gave insightful and valuable information into the selection process.

Stephanie is beyond thrilled to join the Prairie Hills Elementary School learning community. She will work with current interim principal, Kim Walsh, to create a successful transition plan, which will include opportunities for you to meet her and to spend some time with her this spring.

I am confident in Stephanie’s leadership and know that she will be able to continue all that is great about Prairie Hills, while also being able to elevate whole child success.

In partnership with you,


Tobey Bassoff
Executive Director of Schools
