Principal's Message

  • Mr. BalchaitisGreetings Floranada Families,

    It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the principal of Floranada Elementary School. I am honored to have this opportunity to serve the staff, parents, community, and of course our amazing students.

    As I enter my 18th year with Broward County Public Schools, I look forward to bringing my wide range of experiences to work with you as a partner in the academic and social growth of your child(ren). Exceptional schools are derived by ensuring the well-being of all stakeholders, setting high academic expectations, and providing ongoing support to ensure they are met. I look forward to focusing on these key components in order to ensure the success of every child who walks through the doors of Floranada.
    One of the most important aspects of my work will be building strong relationships with the students, staff, and families.  We are all teachers and I believe every interaction has an impact on our journey. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any of your concerns, suggestions, or questions that may arise during the school year.

    I can’t wait to meet all of you over the next few months and continue the extraordinary legacy here at Floranada.


    Luke Balchaitis
