Principal's Message

    Dear Harbordale Parents,

    I am honored to be named as the principal of such an amazing school!  Our staff is a highly talented group of teachers who work diligently to create a caring, nurturing and challenging learning environment for our students.  We believe in educating the whole child, where social emotional learning is at the forefront of all we do.  Harbordale students are active participants in their education.  Their achievement is the product of their hard work, commitment and team effort.  We are proud to say we are one of the “Best Kept Secrets” in Broward County, celebrating more than 60 years of academic excellence.

    Student academic success and social emotional well-being is the main goal of every staff member.  Our focus this school year is to build on Harbordale’s many successes and accomplishments as we strive to continue our positive academic performance and meet individual learning needs.  We feel confident that through our team approach and the hard work of students, teachers and parents our goals can be achieved and surpassed.

    Many of our successes are a direct result of the support of our parent organization, Harbordale School Association (HSA).  HSA supports many of our curriculum initiatives, extra-curricular activities and classrooms. 

    Communication is key and vital to our success!  We encourage all parents to bookmark our websites, Harbordale Elementary School and Harbordale School Association (HSA).  Weekly updates from administration are sent out in additional to Class DOJO communication with teachers.

    We look forward to another very successful school year and the opportunity to work together with our families to provide the best learning environment and educational experiences for all our students.  Let’s make this the best year ever!!!
