Hello Kensington Elementary School Family!

My name is Maurice Cobb, the Principal of Kensington Elementary School (KES). It is absolutely a privilege to be serving as your child's school leader for the 2017-18 school year. It is going to be a year of change, growth, and much learning. I'm excited to see what the future holds for our little Kensington Koalas! I believe that together we can build a brighter future for our students. So, I encourage you all to partner with me as we continue to build upon the great legacy that Kensington is known for. We are known for having quality teachers, gifted students, strong supportive parental involvement, and a uncomparable sense of family and community!

I have had the privilege to serve as the assistant principal of KES for the last 3 years. I have enjoyed getting to know our koalas, parents, and community members. I look forward to continuing and growing our partnership for the academic and behavioral success of students we serve.

Prior to arriving at KES, I worked as a third grade teacher at Sampit Elementary. I have worked in other schools within our district as well. I have taught all grades within my certification which covers grades K-3. I have been an educator in the County of Georgetown for 16 years and have loved every minute of it. Children are my passion, and they are our future!

I would also like to share our school theme for the 2017-18 school year. It is  PEACE, LOVE, AND LEARNING! We are excited to see what academic enthusiasm will arise from the classroom decorations and visual reminders of this year's theme. I feel motivated to share some, peace, love, and learning already! Woohoo!


As we go throughout the school year, we will continue to teach students how to be academically and behaviorally successful. Our three school-wide habits of Respectful, Responsible, and Ready-To-Learn will continue to be taught, modeled, and expected in all settings of our campus. 

Our goal this year is to continue to promote a stronger sense of family and unity within our building. We aim to build stronger relationships with our koalas, parents, and the community we serve. We will work to achieve this through a school wide initiative called HOUSE Expectations.

HOUSE Expectations promotes unity outside of grade levels, within the school, and within the Kensington community. To learn more, stop by the school and pick-up a brochure or ask any member of our Kensington HOUSE. We will be glad to share.

 I am truly excited to start this year off with a great bunch of smart and eager teachers, students, and parents. I look forward to meeting and working with each of you. Let's have a great year of learning!

Peace, Love, and Learning,


Maurice L. Cobb
