Principal's Message

  • Heather Hedman-DeVaughn, Principal

    Dear Manatee Bay Families,

    Welcome and Welcome back to a new school year. As your Principal, I count it a true honor and a privilege to once again lead this incredible school. I want you to know that year after year we have seen growth and success and we enter another school year being a proud A+ school. One of my beliefs is that being incredible “does not just happen.” It happens because of what exists on this campus, the BEST and BRIGHTEST willing learners, SKILLED, PASSIONATE, CARING teachers and staff, SUPER SUPPORTIVE parents, and an entire school community working TOGETHER for the same goal.

    This year we are excited to continue the excellence with our STEM Robotics Programs, High Achieving / Gifted classes, Debate, Dual Language, Digital Classes, Math and Science competitions, Night of the Arts, a wide range of interest clubs including Drama, Chess, Cooking, running and much more. Most importantly the OUTSTANDING teaching, caring, and learning that goes on every day at the Bay!

    Please feel free to contact me if you have a need! Your communication and feedback help to make our school the success that it is! Thanks in advance for your partnership in the BEST vocation in the world!
