Welcome to Cora B. Darling Elementary

Welcome to Cora B. Darling Elementary



I am thrilled to continue my professional responsibilities as the Cora B. Darling 
elementary principal. Our K – 6 building has grown again this year reaching 396 
students. This growth has secured each grade level with three-sections in K-4 and a 
departmentalized six team member 5 & 6th grade. 
We are committed to focus on learning and results with a collaborative culture. Our 
staff has committed to the following:
Focus On Learning: We will hold our students to high expectations with the belief 
that they all can achieve at high levels. We will establish relationships with students 
so they know we are invested in and celebrate their learning.  
Focus on Results: We will celebrate the small successes and continue to see the big 
picture! We will collaborate within our TEAMS both horizontally and vertically to 
meet the needs of students by using the Iowa Core to guide instruction and meet 
grade level expectations. We will continue to assess and evaluate data to determine 
what is working and what isn’t and continue to fill the gaps of learning for all 
Collaborative Culture: We will create an environment where we feel empowered 
and keep each other accountable. We will work toward a positive environment for 
all Staff, Students, and Families. 
Please feel free to stop and visit us when your schedule allows. We are excited about 
the learning opportunities taking place in our school. We would enjoy sharing them 
with you!
Mr. Chad Wahls, 
PK – 6 Principal
