Our Principal

Dear Hickman Families,

Welcome to Hickman Elementary! Home of the Hawks! We are a Leader In Me Lighthouse school where the 7 Habits are interwoven into everything we do. We empower our students, staff, and families to be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, think first to understand, and then to be understood, synergize, sharpen the saw, and finally find your voice and inspire others to find theirs. We have a very active student lighthouse team composed of student representatives from each grade level who lead activities throughout the year and use their voices for school improvement. We are also a PBIS (Positive Behavior Support and Intervention) School with four school rules: Be respectful, Be responsible, Be safe, and Be kind!

 Our core paradigms are:

Everyone can be a leader.

Everyone has genius.

Change starts with me.

Empower students to lead their own learning.

Educators and families partner to develop the whole person.


We are so fortunate to have an amazing supportive parent group of volunteers called the NEST (Nurturing and Encouraging Students Together) here at Hickman! Through fundraising events they are able to provide valuable educational tools and enriching experiences for all our students each year.

Being a Hickman Hawk means you are part of our family! The Hickman family is a supportive, caring, inclusive, and collaborative group of students, parents, and staff leaders who care deeply about helping and supporting each other. It takes a village to raise a child…and we have one amazing village here!

It is a pleasure to serve as principal of such a high quality school! I encourage you to join in and get involved! Volunteers are always needed…just ask how you can help!

With warmest regards,

Christi Martelli
