Principal Kurtis Koenig

Welcome Trojans!


It is my sincere pleasure to serve you as the elementary principal for the 2020-21 academic year!  The K-5 Team is eager and excited to start another year of learning and growing!  Here at Whitehall Elementary, we all champion the belief that every student deserves our very best, every day, and we are committed to delivering just that. 


With an enrollment of fewer than 200 students, our student-to-teacher ratio is around 15:1.  These small class sizes allow our students to benefit from individual attention and focused instruction within our rigorous academic offerings. 


The 2020-21 school year marks my third as the building principal for Whitehall Elementary.  My career began in Ennis, MT where I taught for 14 years and coached football, basketball, and track.  My family and I have loved living in Whitehall where we have noted the caring, supportive sense of community which this town exemplifies.  The teachers in this building constantly go the extra mile for their students, and I absolutely could not choose a better environment for my two children to learn and grow. 


I am very thankful to be a part of this community, this school, and most of all, this K-5 TEAM! 


I will always make myself available to chat with parents and community members.  Please contact me via email at, or via phone at 287-3882 ext. 2112. 


Go Trojans!
