Message from Mrs. Karn (Principal)

Dear Mighty Mustang Families,
As we approach the beginning of the 23-24 school year, I am absolutely thrilled to extend a
warm welcome to each and every one of you as your new principal! The opportunity to become a
Mighty Mustang and be a part of the wonderful community while serving the families here is
truly an honor that fills me with excitement. As I have been in the school, it has become evident
that this school holds a unique and special place in the hearts of all who are connected to it.

As a proud graduate of Rapid City and a trained educator within the Rapid City Area Schools, I
bring with me 10 years of valuable experience in the field of education. Throughout my journey,
I have had the privilege of teaching at Wilson, Knollwood, and most recently, serving as the
Elementary Principal in Hot Springs. These experiences have shaped my passion for fostering a
positive and impactful learning environment for students, which I now aim to extend to the
students of General Beadle.

To celebrate the uniqueness and individual strengths that each one of us possesses, I believe “The
Magic is in You”, and that we have the power to unlock the true potential within ourselves to
create an exceptional educational journey together. As we embark on finding the ‘Magic’ in each
individual, I want you to know that your partnership is valued, appreciated, and integral to the
success of our school. Let’s work hand in hand, supporting and inspiring our students to reach
their full potential and strengthen our school community as a whole. Together as a school family,
we will have incredible accomplishments and magical moments ahead of us.

I am looking forward to getting to know each of you and working collaboratively to make the
23-24 school year one of the most remarkable and rewarding experiences for everyone involved.
Let us embark on this ‘Magical’ journey together, creating cherished memories and fostering a
love for learning that will last a lifetime.


~Mrs. Abby Karn
