  • Principal's Message

    Greetings Martin Luther King, Jr. Preschool family!


    MLK Principal


    My name is Crystal Hartsfield, and I am honored to lead this school as your principal. This is my 2nd year at Martin Luther King Jr. Preschool, having experience and background as teacher, and instructional coach. I have been a part of Richmond Public Schools (RPS) for 20+ years.  I am also a proud product of RPS.  I am passionate about my work and will do whatever it takes to make sure our students and staff are supported and successful.  It is truly an honor and privilege to be the principal of Martin Luther King, Jr. Preschool (MLKPS). It is a special place. I am overjoyed to be in a position to positively impact the lives of students and teachers. As we plan for a beginning like no other we have seen in the past, our focus will be to ensure that:

    every child, every day is finding a way to feel connected,

    every child, every day is being challenged by new learnings and experiences,

    and every child, every day knows that they have champion they can turn to.  Although this year will look very different than any other, I know that if we work together, we can learn and achieve more than ever. 

               To the parents of our scholars, your partnership with us will be of tremendous importance as we support your children to reach their full potential.  Our faculty and staff are an outstanding group of dedicated professionals. 

               My vision for this school is for each and very student to be kind, critical thinkers, who problem-solve and collaborate effectively to reach their goals. I have high expectations for students and staff, and we will work together to hold ourselves accountable to a high standard of excellence. We will make decisions based on the needs of our students and what is in their best interest.  No matter a student's needs, we will use our expertise and training to provide the necessary support systems and strategies to ensure his/her success both academically and socially.  We will have a caring and nurturing environment that starts with a positive school culture. I am eager to embark on this adventure together. If we all work together as a team, I know we can achieve great things.  My door is always open, and I look forward to meeting each of you!

               Please contact me anytime by phone or email. I hope that you can use the information found within the pages of this website to familiarize yourself with our school and get some answers to some of your questions.  Content will be updated at least quarterly or as often as needed so please check back for updates. 


    Here is to an AWESOME and SUCCESSFUL year TOGETHER!

    Let's go Tiny Titans!!

    Resilience. Pride. Success. We are  RPS.
