Welcome & Intro Interim Principal Mrs. Kate Hamill!

November 23, 2018

It is a great delight to announce that Mrs. Kate Hamill will be serving as Interim Principal at Mary Queen of Peace for the remainder of the 2018-2019 school year. Mrs. Hamill is a career educator and most recently served as Interim Principal at St. Michael Catholic School in Prior Lake. At St. Michael Catholic School, Mrs. Hamill worked to guide the school to full accreditation with MNSAA, and led the development of a licensed Preschool program.

Mrs. Hamill comes to us highly recommended by the Office for the Mission of Catholic Education at the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. She has proven success providing interim leadership and support to Catholic schools. After meeting with Mrs. Hamill on Wednesday afternoon, I am grateful she is willing to lead Mary Queen of Peace during this time of transition. I am confident we have a fresh start and new beginning to the remainder of the school year and look forward to a bright future.

We will be working closely with the Center for the Mission of Catholic Education in our search for a Principal for the next school year, and the process will begin early 2019. Expect details on that search to be communicated after the Christmas holiday.

Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Hamill into our school and parish community. She will begin Monday morning! Thank you for your support these past few weeks, and I look forward to a great school year!

May God bless you and keep you.

Let me introduce Myself – A note from Mrs. Hamill

Dear MQP Families,

Hello, my name is Mrs, Kate Hamill. It is with great joy that I introduce myself to your wonderful school community! I have had the privilege of working in Catholic education for the more than 18 years. Recently, I served as the Principal at Guardian Angels School in Chaska, MN and the Interim Principal at St. Michael Catholic School in Prior Lake, MN.

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from the College of St. Catherine and a Graduate Certificate in Administration, Principal K-12 from St. Mary’s University, Twin Cities Campus.

My husband, Tim and I have three kids; Eddie, 8th grade, Jack, 6th grade and Clare in 3nd grade and we live in Deephaven, MN. I LOVE learning, reading, running, and spending time outdoors with our family.

I look forward to meeting you and your family very soon!

Peace and Joy,

Mrs. Hamill
