Welcome to Duke!

Welcome to Duke

Hello Duke Families,

Mr. Adams and I are excited to join your community as Principal and Assistant Principal of CWFDES. Our educational philosophy is based on the belief that when children are excited to attend school, the learning takes care of itself. We look forward to getting to know each of your students and making the 2022-23 school year their best one yet. 

We firmly believe that the home/school connection is essential for the success of our students. Be on the lookout for future communications from us as we get closer to Wednesday, August 24th (the first day back for students). In the meantime, enjoy these precious summer months and time spent with your families.


Katie Kortokrax and Zach Adams
