About

Welcome to Eisenhower Elementary School!  Eisenhower is a wonderful place where students are loved, supported, and challenged.  Together we work hard, practice kindness, and have fun!
Calli Dado Principal
It is my pleasure to be Eisenhower's Principal and to get to work with the fabulous students, staff, parents, and Ike community members. This is my second year working for the Crown Point Community Schools, and my 12th year in education. Prior to coming to Eisenhower, I was a principal and assistant principal for the Valparaiso Community Schools. Previous to my administrative roles, I taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Title 1 remediation. I have a Master's Degree in Supervision and Administration from Indiana State University and received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University. 
 
I believe that students need to feel safe and respected in order to learn. It is my goal, as the school principal, to create a safe and effective learning environment where students are engaged and excited learners as they become college and career ready. Positive relationships between all school stakeholders is essential in maximizing student success. Please feel free to contact me to ask questions and share ideas. I look forward to partnering with you!

Assistant Principal Melanie Pociask

I am honored to join the Eisenhower community as the new Assistant Principal. I will be sharing my time between Eisenhower and Solon Robinson. I have enjoyed meeting students, parents, and staff over the last several weeks. While this is my first year at Eisenhower, it is my 17th year working for the Crown Point Community School Corporation. I have experience teaching students in all grades from kindergarten to fifth grade. I have a Master’s Degree in Education and Administration through Indiana Wesleyan University, and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Manchester College.

I believe it is the job of school administrators to create a safe, supportive, student-centered learning environment as well as preserve and enhance a positive climate within the school community. I am excited to serve the educational, social, and emotional needs of students and families at Eisenhower. I am looking forward to getting to know you and building relationships as we work together to help your children learn and grow. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to your family in any way.
