Message from the Principal

Alma Chapa Moore

Alma Chapa Moore- Interim Principal

Dear Kiker Community:
I am honored to serve as Interim Principal of Kiker Elementary. I am so proud to be a part of such a vibrant community and outstanding staff. I am genuinely grateful for the support and warm welcome.

After graduating from Pan American University, I began my career in education as a middle school language arts teacher at B L Gray Junior High in the Sharyland Independent School District in the RioGrande Valley. Although I remained in the Sharyland school system for sixteen years, my jobs changedfrom teaching middle school language arts to teaching English I, English II, speech and theatre. Afterreceiving my Masters in Education from UT-Pan American, I served as an assistant principal at Sharyland High School.

In 1998, my family moved to Austin. I began as a Kiker parent in 2002 and over the years volunteered in the classroom and front office before becoming Kiker’s part-time assistant principal in 2005. I have had the unique privilege of knowing Kiker as a parent AND an administrator. It gives me a great perspective when I meet with parents who are considering moving to our area. I am the perfect Kiker (and AISD) ambassador.

My son Jake attended Kiker, Bailey (2 yrs.) Gorzycki (1 yr.), and graduated from Bowie in 2014. He recently moved to Pflugerville to be closer to work. Our younger son Steve came to live with us in 8 thgrade and attended Gorzycki and graduated from Bowie in 2015. He currently enjoys favorite son statussince blessing us with a beautiful granddaughter, Jayla, in April (2019). My husband Nick and I love living
in the Kiker community and the city of Austin, our home for the last 22 years.

As your Interim Principal, my job is to help those students who will transition to the new southwestelementary as well as those students who will stay at Kiker. Our staff will continue to deliver the besteducation to your children. At Kiker we believe that every child should feel loved by his/her teacher andfeel that they are an integral part of our school and community.

Because I retired from education several years ago, I am restricted from assuming a long-term principalposition. I am most grateful to Mr. Crissey and AISD administration who believed me to be the best choice to help Kiker through this transition.

There is no doubt the Kiker principal position will attract many qualified applicants. Our Campus Advisory Council (CAC) co-chairs are committed to forming a strong team to aid in the selection process. I look forward to working with Kiker’s new principal as he/she learns about and becomes a part of our incredible community.

I sincerely thank you for all the kind words and well wishes since I accepted my new position. You are my family, and I rejoice in the opportunity to serve you in this capacity. My door is always open should youneed me for any reason.

Proud to be your Interim Principal!
Alma Chapa Moore

AISD Updated Safety System at Kiker

Always be prepared to show identification when visiting Kiker! As you are all planning visits to Kiker for any reason (with the exception of morning drop off) please always be prepared show identification.  If you have been here before, we will  ask you to provide your drivers license for us to scan and update in our system.  If you have friends or family that will be coming with you, please make sure they bring identification as well.

If you need to pick your child up early, we will ask for identification. In addition, try to be here by 2:30.  This will allow plenty of time for the buddies that escort them to the office to get back to class safely prior to dismissal.  Please note that this system has been updated district wide. We thank you for your help and understanding while we work out all of the details!
