Principal's Message

    Introduction to the Community


    Hello and welcome back to our returning scholars and a big welcome to our new scholars and parents. My name is Mr. Darby this year marks 22nd year in the field of education and my second as the proud principal of Royal Palm Elementary. As the returning principal I proudly announce that the number of scholars demonstrating proficiency as measured by the Florida Standards Assessments, has increased in Reading, Science, and Math. This increase in scholar achievement has led to a Royal Palm Elementary earning a letter grade “C”. On behalf of administration, I want to personally thank each member of our amazing faculty for their hard work and dedication. Just as important I want to thank our parents for continued support for we know you are our scholars’ first teacher. Staff, parents, and scholars must take this success into the 2018-2019 school year and build on it. We all play an important role in the success of our scholars. As the principal, I will ensure that your scholar receives a quality education in a safe learning environment. As the parent or guardian, you can help achieve this goal by doing the following:

    1. Make sure your child/children arrive to school prepared and on time everyday.

    2. Read with your child/children a minimum of 30 minutes everyday. Just as important ask challenging questions about the material read.

    3. Reward and/or acknowledge successes throughout the school year. While small tangible items are great, so are verbal praises and big hugs.

    We look forward to the 2018 - 2019 school year the year in which we celebrate TEAM. We truly believe Together Everyone Achieves More. In addition, we are modeling with out scholars Kindness to SELF-SCHOLARS-STAFF- & SCHOOL. We kindly ask that you support our initiative of TEAM & KINDNESS.


    Educationally yours,

    Mr. Darby
