Principal's Message

    Dear Tropical Families, 

    Welcome back Tropical Families to the 2022 – 2023 school year! A special welcome also goes out to our new Toucans and their families. 

    As we begin this school year, we want to ensure that each of you has a very successful school year. Tropical Elementary was awarded a grade of “A” by the State of Florida for the 2021 -2022 school year. We are proud of our grade, but even more proud of the dedication of our teachers, students, parents, staff and our school community for putting our students first and ensuring that they made progress throughout the school year. By supporting each other and learning together in a positive environment, we all grew individually and collectively. 

    The start of the school year can be exciting but also overwhelming for students as they take on different subjects, learn new concepts and make new friends. We look forward to partnering with you to provide the guidance and support that our Toucans need to grow and be successful as they continue their educational journey. We look forward to a year of learning and fun while being aware of the need to grow academically, socially and emotionally! 

    Our theme this year will be “Toucan, You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” from the award-winning movie Toy Story. 



    We look forward to seeing you soon! 

    To Infinity and Beyond! 


    Robert N. Schneider, Principal
