Dear Parent/Guardian,

Welcome to Hall Elementary School, home of the Huskies, where the staff is deeply committed to the academic, social, and emotional growth of all of our students. 

My name is Karen Marino, and this is my fourth year as principal of Hall School.  I have 10 years of administrative experience, three years as an Assistant Principal and three years as a Principal and District Director of Response to Intervention (RTI) in addition to my time as Principal.   Prior to my administrative career, I spent three years in the 3rd and 4th grades and six years as a reading specialist.

Thank you for visiting the G. Stanley Hall Elementary School Page and being a member of the Husky community.  Please be sure to visit this website often, as you will find this page to be a great resource for important names and phone numbers, upcoming dates, and everything else we have to offer our students, staff and community.

I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm and passion for teaching and learning with all of you over the coming year.  If at any point you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at 630-469-7720 or email me at

With Husky Pride,

Karen Marino, Principal
