My name is Keary Rininger. I am the proud principal of Hickory Elementary.

I encourage parents and family members to become actively involved in our school’s activities. Parents can become involved in our school by volunteering to assist in our classrooms, attending PTO meetings, and assisting during special events and activities. We welcome your support and involvement! My goal is that all of our students reach their full potential in school each year at Hickory and a strong home-school partnership is crucial to achieving this goal.

Dustin Sites Testimonial

One of my favorite things about teaching is when the light bulb turns on for kids, when I see that they've got it! The kids are my number one thing. They're what keeps me going. Dustin Sites, Teacher
