A Message from

Mrs. Gengelbach

I’m so excited to get the opportunity to work with you and your child at CME next year. My name is Cassie Gengelbach, and it’s a great honor to serve as your principal for the 22-23 school year. I have been fortunate to work in education and in the Blue Springs School District for 18 years.

I started my career in 2004 at Sunny Pointe Elementary teaching 5th grade and 3rd grade for seven years. After leaving the classroom, I was fortunate to work as an administrative intern and assistant principal at Franklin Smith Elementary and James Walker Elementary. I returned to SPE as the assistant principal for four years and served as an assistant principal at Paul Kinder Middle School for some of this time as well. I’ve served as the principal of SPE since 2018 and look forward to working at CME in this capacity next year. 

Outside of school, you will find me spending time with my family. My husband and I are proud parents of two children in the Blue Springs School District. Keeping up with high school and elementary student certainly keeps me busy, but also brings me so much joy.     

I’m looking forward to another memorable and successful year at CME! I’ve got a lot of staff, students, and families to get to know, but my priority is to build relationships first. I know it won’t be long before I know your child’s name and what makes them shine! 

Your feedback is so valuable. Our goal is to provide an inviting atmosphere where every child, parent, and staff member feel like they belong. I want everyone to feel like CME is their home away from home. We are a team, so please reach out if you have any questions or ideas to make our school the absolute best. Our primary goal is to provide your child with the opportunities and experiences that are essential to educational success at CME and beyond.  

Thank you for your support!  I look forward to meeting you all soon!

Cassie Gengelbach, Principal
