Assistant Principal's Message


It is with great joy and enthusiasm that I extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you to the vibrant learning environment of Apple Creek Elementary. As Assistant Principal of this elementary, I am honored to be a part of a community that holds education in the highest regard.

Having grown up right here in Moore and attended Moore Public Schools during my own formative years, I have developed a deep-rooted appreciation for the value of quality education and its impact on shaping young minds. It is this very sentiment that fuels my commitment to ensuring every student at Apple Creek Elementary receives the best education possible, one that empowers them to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

My educational journey has been fortified by dedicated pursuit of knowledge and professional growth. With an undergraduate degree in Early Education from the University of Central Oklahoma, it allowed me to understand how to build a solid foundation for future success. Furthering my dedication to educational leadership, I pursued a master's degree in education administration from the University of Oklahoma. This academic path gave me the tools and insights needed to help Ms. McNear lead our school community towards greatness.

At Apple Creek Elementary, we believe in fostering an inclusive and collaborative environment that embraces diversity and nurtures the individual strengths of each student. Our team of passionate educators is committed to providing innovative teaching methodologies that inspire curiosity, critical thinking, and a lifelong love for learning. We strive to create an atmosphere where students feel safe to explore, make mistakes, and grow into responsible citizens who positively impact the world around them.

As we embark on this educational journey together, I invite you to partner with us in creating a school culture that values open communication, active participation, and a shared vision for our students' success.  Together, we will uphold the legacy of excellence that defines our school and prepares our students for a future full of promise.

Warm regards,

Courtenay Coolahan
