Assistant Principal's Message

    Welcome to Sheridan Park Elementary School, where we are “Building a Better World, One Child at a Time." I feel extremely fortunate to serve as the Assistant Principal of our school for the 2020-2021 school year.

    Exciting plans are in place for this year with eLearning as we embrace this innovative way of learning. Sheridan Park teachers and students had already begun making the transition to distance learning last Spring and our staff has embraced this method of instruction. We pride ourselves on providing every student with a high-quality education in a safe and positive learning environment and we will continue to do so through eLearning. Our staff members are exceptional, innovative, and true team players who truly value education. Our hard work and dedication is evident by our “B” rating from Florida’s Department of Education. We will continue to strive towards reaching our goal of an “A” and I’m positive that we will continue to see growth and success from all of our students.

    As assistant principal, I am committed to ensuring that students enjoy school every day and that their social and emotional needs are being met. I am equally committed to ensuring that students are provided opportunities for them to problem solve, think critically, and maintain positive peer relationships.

    I will continue to establish and nurture relationships of respect and trust with all of our stakeholders. Together, we will build a community of independent, kind, and intelligent citizens. I encourage you to always communicate with your child’s teacher and to remain active in your child’s education because after all, it takes a village to raise a child.

    Please know that my door is ALWAYS open to assist with questions, concerns, and or suggestions, as I truly welcome and value your input. I’m looking forward to charting this new course together and I'm positive that we will rock it!  

    Educationally Yours,

    Shalonda McWhorter

    Assistant Principal
