Dear Families and Community Members,

Welcome to our Keystone Heights community school! I am so proud to be the leader of such a dynamic group of faculty and staff who impact stellar students each day. Our school is an A+ school, offering top-notch academics, while nurturing each and every student’s social and emotional needs to reach the highest potential. Every day students are engaged in highly rigorous learning through technology, collaboration, inquiry and project-based learning.

Keystone Heights Elementary School is one of two “feeder” schools in our community that funnel all students to Keystone Heights Jr./Sr. High School directly across the street from our campus. We have 120 faculty/staff members who delightfully serve over 800 students each day. We are completing the final stages, and will begin the 2022-2023 school year, as a Cambridge Primary School. As Cambridge students, our future sixth graders will have the opportunity to glean valuable academic skills and move on to the Cambridge AICE pathway at Keystone Heights Jr./Sr. High School. We are also a Title 1 school, receiving federal funding that provides a wealth of resources, including a STEM teacher and a math coach, who are field experts. Through Title 1 funding, we also have multiple teacher assistants, who use their talents to push into classrooms, providing additional teaching support to our students.

Keystone Heights is a small town that has a neighborhood feel, where everyone loves and supports one another. Most of our faculty/staff live in Keystone Heights and greatly desire to invest in our students. Our community is filled with people who love to volunteer their time and energy to ensure the success of our school. KHE has a very strong Parent Faculty Association (PFA), who dedicate themselves to helping celebrate student successes and to meet our school’s needs in a variety of ways.

Coming from a nearby small town, I realize what a rare gem KHE is, and do not take my role as principal lightly. I am honored to be a part of the Clay County School District and the Keystone Heights community. Thank you to all of the parents, faculty, staff and members of the community who make each day meaningful to the students we serve. Together, we are preparing our students to be leaders in the 21st century.

Sincerely and Respectfully,

Beth Turbeville

Assistant Principal, Kayleigh Williams

Dear parents and community members;

I am excited to continue my journey as the assistant principal of Keystone Heights Elementary School. I am a proud member of the Keystone Heights community. I have been extremely fortunate to teach at Keystone Heights Elementary prior to taking on my current role of assistant principal. I am excited to continue serving the teachers, staff, students, and community members at Keystone Heights Elementary, as I assist in leading our Little Indian Tribe.

Prior to becoming an assistant principal, I was a teacher for ten years. I served in many teaching roles varying from Kindergarten to Sixth grade, in general education and exceptional student education. I began my journey in education in Flagler County, prior to relocating to Clay County. I served in coaching extra curricular activities such as; Girls on the Run and Florida Future Problem Solvers.

The Keystone Heights community is key to our school’s success. Parent involvement increases student achievement and enriches the school community. I take great pride in building positive and lasting relationships with teachers, staff, students, parents, families, and community members. It takes all of us working together in partnership to ensure our students receive the best education to become lifelong learners.

I look forward to working with each of you as we continue on this educational journey together.

I have been an educator my entire career, I have had the opportunity to serve as a teacher, coach, Assistant Principal, High School Principal, Superintendent, and worked for the Ohio Department of Education as the Assistant Superintendent all of these positions have enabled me to not only provide leadership to several school districts but, more importantly, to make a difference in the life of many students.

I really look forward to becoming a part of the larger community here at Keystone and working with everyone to ensure the success of all students.

I am always willing to talk or help anyone who has a question or concern.

Yours in Education,
