Principal's Message

Welcome to KDS DAR Elementary School!  We are a PreK-4 elementary school located in Marshall County, Alabama.  You will find dedicated teachers and staff, hard-working students, and amazing parents who support our school community. We are also blessed with the love and support of the wonderful Daughters of the American Revolution. 

Our website gives you a glimpse of daily life at KDS.  You’ll see that we offer a rich educational experience that combines academic, social, and extracurricular experiences to help each child develop to his or her fullest potential.  You’ll find many ways that parents can get involved, as well as our many avenues of communication. You’ll get the chance to connect with our amazing teachers and myself.

We look forward to getting to know you and to learning how we can serve you and your family.  We thank our current parents for entrusting their children to us and we look forward to welcoming new families to KDS DAR Elementary School.
