Mrs. Kelly Hatton

Hello, and Welcome to Las Colinas Middle School,

It is my absolute privilege to be the principal of Las Colinas Middle School. Our teachers are superheroes, and our students amaze me each and every day. We find the light in the dark. We find the laughter and positive at every turn. We work incredibly hard, and we care just as deeply and intensely. I am proud to be a part of such an incredible community. I have witnessed the courage, adaptability and strength of this community. I have witnessed the love, compassion and kindness of our students, staff and families. We are a family, and I am excited to continue working together as a community to support and care for our students.

For those new to our school, I would like to introduce myself. In my 26 years in education, I have been an Elementary Principal, Middle School Assistant Principal, Middle School Dean of Discipline, an elementary, middle school and high school teacher as well as a kindergarten Instructional Aide. Those positions have been held mostly in California, but also in Germany and Japan. My own higher education includes a BA from UCLA, a Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential, a Single Subject Credential in English, an Educational Administration Credential and an MA from CSUN. I absolutely love the world of education, and it is my honor to work with the students and families of LCMS. 

Here at Las Colinas, we are dedicated to your children. Our goal is to prepare 21st century learners who are responsible members of our global society. We support students in developing as kind, caring, well-rounded adults who will add to the improvement of our world. Our entire staff is dedicated to making sure every student thrives and succeeds.

If you have any ideas, thoughts, questions or concerns, I am available to meet with you. Please contact me at


With gratitude,

Kelly Hatton, Principal
