It’s a Great Day to be a Flyer
Hello, my name is Stephen Jones, and I am indeed honored to currently be serving in my tenth year as the Superintendent of Little Falls Community Schools. As we continue to drive the educational path forward for over 2,500 students in a time of major disruption brought upon us by the pandemic, our 400 education professionals continue to consistently put the needs of students and families above all else. Our focus first and foremost is on the children and on the families of our district, offering sincere support, resources, empathy, and grace to our stakeholders. We know fully well that the past two years have produced challenges that all of us have needed to confront and address in our personal and professional lives. As resilient as children naturally are, we nonetheless understand that the core of what we do with children right now must be centered on “relationships” if we are to maximize the impact of our educational programming--academic, social, emotional--on our students.
We are proud of our seven separate educational facilities in the Little Falls E-12 system: Early Childhood Center in Little Falls, Dr. S.G. Knight Elementary in Randall, Lincoln Elementary, Lindbergh Elementary, Little Falls Community Middle School, Little Falls Community High School, and the Continuing Education Center.
I started my position at Little Falls Community Schools on July 1, 2012, after working in different positions at various Minnesota school districts: Tracy as Speech/Language Arts Teacher (1998-2003); Maple River as High School Principal (2003-2005); Murray County Central as High School Principal/Superintendent (2005-2009); and Sibley East as Superintendent (2009-2012). My wife Kristin and I have four adult children: David, Alex, Noah, and Hannah...plus four grandchildren, two of whom are students at Lindbergh Elementary School. We live in Little Falls and truly enjoy life in this beautiful Mississippi River town.
If you have any questions, concerns, thoughts, or ideas about the Little Falls Community School District, I ask that you please contact me. I would truly enjoy getting to hear what our district stakeholders have to say about the work we do on behalf of the students and families of our district.
