Welcome to Altoona Elementary!

Morgan Miller School PhotoGreetings from Altoona Elementary School!  I feel very fortunate to serve our school community and the entire district.  I come to Southeast Polk most recently from North Polk Community School District.  This is the start of my 13th year as an elementary school principal.

I take pride in being a life-long learner in a setting that is supported by engaged students, connected families, and extremely dedicated teachers and staff members.  I have learned quickly that Altoona Elementary is indeed a very special place!

Altoona Elementary provides an exciting and unique learning environment for the children and the families we serve.  We are committed to ensuring academic excellence, mutual respect, and an appreciation for diversity.  We will work collaboratively to provide rigorous learning experiences and leadership opportunities for our students.  We want our students to be established problem-solvers, critical thinkers, and confident learners who have limitless opportunities to succeed in the school setting and beyond.

At Altoona Elementary we believe that ALL students…

  • will learn at high levels
  • will be celebrated
  • will thrive in our learning environment that is a safe, secure, and positive
  • will take risks and learn from mistakes

I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you this school year.  Please feel free to contact me at any time.  I can be reached at morgan.miller@southeastpolk.org or (515) 967-3771.

Respectfully,
Mr. Miller, Principal
