A Message from Our Principal

I am excited to be the principal at Gannett Peak Elementary School. My educational journey began in a one-room country school in southwestern South Dakota where I attended K–6 grades. I was the only girl in my grade and loved helping the younger students and the teacher. From a very early age, I knew I wanted to be a teacher, and I consider myself a lifelong learner. I love kids of all ages but truly have a passion for primary students. I am honored to be a part of your child’s journey at Gannett Peak and to work in such a caring and supportive community.

Sincerely in Education,

Leslie Voxland
