    Sanders Park Families,

    On behalf of the staff at Sanders Park Elementary, I am excited to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year!  I would like to extend a special welcome to all the new families and welcome back all our returning families. I am honored to be your principal. Out of concern for the safety and well-being of the entire school community, Broward County Schools will begin the year in a virtual e-Learning environment.  Although we are starting differently, our focus remains to ensure every student, every day is connected and challenged. We are committed to ensuring that students learn by creating an atmosphere of collaboration and support and making the overall experience feel personalized for each student.

    Sanders Park Elementary is a Communication and Broadcasting Magnet School. We are proud of the excellent educational opportunities we provide to our students, including specialized instruction in Communications and Broadcast Journalism. Students kindergarten through fifth grade experience a rich curriculum that includes debate, public speaking, research, broadcasting, and journalism.  Please call if you are interested in the program and would like a personalized tour.

    We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education and this is MOST important now more than ever.  We greatly appreciate the support and encourage all our families to become more engaged in the Sanders Park Elementary community. Your attendance at School Advisory Council (SAC), PTA, school events and even volunteering is needed as we continue to strengthen the home-school partnership. It truly does take a village!

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for any assistance you may need.  I look forward to another great year and welcoming families to campus in-person. Thank you for your support as we continue to provide your children with the best educational experience.

    Stay safe and stay well. 

    Ms. Nesbeth
