During the week of Feb. 24-28th we will be
administering the STAAR simulation tests in grades 3-5.
This is a great opportunity for the students to practice
the routines and procedures for the actual test days in April.
These are 4 hour timed tests. Please be sure your
student is here on time and stays all day.
Join us at our PTA meetings
the 2nd Tuesday of each month!
See you there!

Welcome to the Principal's Page
Ms. Donna Finch
Welcome to Kate Schenck Elementary School... home of the Owls!
My name is Donna Venable-Finch, and I have been principal at Kate Schenck Elementary since 2008. I am a graduate of Southwest Texas State University (Now called Texas State University) in San Marcos, receiving both my undergraduate and master’s degree in Education. I taught in San Marcos before moving to San Antonio in 1998. I taught in SAISD for two years at Douglass Elementary, moved to Highland Hills Elementary and became school counselor, then Assistant Principal.
I am impressed with the staff’s desire to help the children at Schenck and their willingness to try new ideas and share suggestions. As a campus we are working on increasing academic rigor and having high expectations for the students and each other. The students are working diligently to become successful learners, and to be productive citizens. It is my genuine pleasure to serve as Principal and instructional leader of Schenck Elementary.
