Principal Message


Hi everyone, I'm the new McKinley Elementary principal, my name is Corynn Arehart. 


I'm so excited to be on this epic journey with you this year!! Mr. Chournos and I have worked many, many hours this Spring and Summer to help us have a smooth transition and to make sure I have the information I'll need to support all of you! To let you know a little bit about me, I have shared a quick video, as well as a little write up. 

video coming soon.....

I hope to share McKinley Elementary's story this year through Facebook and Twitter. Please follow us on Facebook @ McKinley Elementary and on Twitter @ corynn_arehart and #unitedweleadmckinley20182019

Who is Corynn; I'm a military wife, I have been married for 24 years, and my husband is currently serving active duty in the Air force. He has been serving for 25 years now, we might be nearing retirement this year.... I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and then moved around between Chicago, Wisconsin, Maryland, and Georgia. We lived in Italy for 3 years and then transferred to Utah. I have lived in Utah with our children since October 2000. We have planted seeds and let the roots grow for our kids while my husband has toured all over the US and overseas. It was important for us to have our children have a place to call home. I currently live in Lewiston UT on a little hobby farm, we have dogs, chickens, goats, ducks, horses, cats, and lots of fun!! I have 3 children, 2 son-in-laws, and 1 grandchild, she just joined us 4 months ago, and we love her to pieces! My baby just turned 16 and is getting his license later this month. YIKES!! We are a rodeo, 4H, horse loving family, and when it's just to hot to ride horses, we play on our family boat. In the winter I love to snowmobile, snowshoe, and play outside. I'm trying to learn to quilt and sew, along with embroidery. 

I have taught at BEHS for 9 years in Special Education, I taught math, team taught Elem. Algebra 1, language Arts, Study Skills, Social skills through Adaptive P.E., and World Civ. I then obtained my 1st maters degree in Curriculum and Instruction and then obtained my 2nd masters degree in Administration School Leadership. I have been a principal in BESD for 4 years. 

I love working with students, parents, teachers, staff member and the community and can't wait to begin building new relationships with our Tremonton families!! I'm passionate about the Leader In Me and believe in the positive outcomes it creates for students to become their own leaders!! Every child deserves to learn the tools to help them in school, society and for life!! 

Our vision this year at McKinley is to teach and show students how to use the 7 habits, how they are all leaders, and to do it in a collaborative process through unity. 

Our theme this year is UNITED WE LEAD!!

I have an open door policy- please contact me anytime via email corynn.arehart@besd.net, my phone or texting 435-740-1315, or by calling the school directly. 

 I'd love to hear from you, please send me a shout out. As families how have you sharpened your saw and built family relationships this summer? 

Please watch for more letters and updates as I believe in being transparent, having high communication with our families and community, and sharing our story! :) 

Thank you everyone, 
Corynn Arehart
