    Kathy Wickett - Principal


    Welcome to Cross Bayou! 

    I am starting my 11th year as principal of Cross Bayou and I am excited that you will be part of the Cross Bayou Family this year!  I have been an educator for 24 years and love being able to work with children everyday!  I have been married for 32 years and have 2 grown children (both married and living in Pinellas County).  I have an almost 1 year old grandson whom I adore! 

    We have a staff that is committed to helping students grow academically and socially.  We need the support of our parents and community to make this happen.

    When you walk the halls of our campus, you will see our school-wide focus on the walls:

    Come Prepared

    Be Responsible

    Exhibit Kindness

    Show Respect

    As a school community we live by these values.

    We have many opportunities for parents/families to participate in our school community, including being part of our PTA/SAC, Volunteer Opportunities, and Monthly Family Learning Events/Concerts.  We have opportunities for our students to be involved in school activities during the school day (PMAC, First Friends, Service Projects) and before/after school activities (Extended Learning, Clubs, Safety Patrol/Bayou Crew).


    My name is Eileen Stull and I have been the Assistant Principal here at Cross Bayou since 2010. I taught here back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. I have been in education for over 24 years. I’ve taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 5th grades. I have two children who have gone through Pinellas County schools and are both graduates of Gibbs High school. I graduated from Boca Ciega High as well. I have loved every experience I have had in Pinellas county schools and am glad that I have the opportunity to work with such an amazing staff here at the Bayou. They are all dedicated educators and work hard every day to make sure students are successful. I look forward to another great year with all our Bobcats!
