Principal’s Letter

Principal Karen CrangDear Families,

Welcome to Children First Leadership Academy, where leaders are developed one student at a time! My name is Karen Crang, and I am honored to lead Children First Leadership Academy in serving as YOUR principal.

The Children First staff and I welcome you to our school and look forward to a wonderful school year. You have a choice in where your child is educated, and I would like to personally thank you for choosing Children First Leadership Academy. My main priority here at CFLA is to provide a safe and engaging learning environment for your children. I believe in being visible to all students, teachers, and parents. I enjoy spending my days in the classrooms, with your children, engaging in their learning process.

At Children First Leadership Academy, we believe that parents and guardians are an integral part of a well-rounded education. We welcome and encourage parents and guardians to come on campus and to participate in school events whenever they are available to attend. We encourage parents and guardians to support their children’s education by reading at home, helping with homework and getting their children to school on time.

I am happy to make time to talk with parents, students, and community members regarding any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. I invite you to call the office at (602) 712-0500 or email me at and I am confident that we can make decisions together that are in the best interest of the children at Children First Leadership Academy!

I look forward to meeting all of you! Here’s to an amazing year!

Karen Crang
