Principal's Message

  • Mr. Eligon

    Greetings Wilton Manors Elementary Faculty, Families, and Community Members,  


    I am honored to serve you as the proud new principal of Wilton Manors Elementary. As the lead learner, my goal is to prepare bright, motivated students for success and lifelong learning. Through high quality academic instruction with the most amazing teachers in the district, and attention to student social development, our goal is to help students acquire the skills that will enable them to make better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities. With our amazing leadership team, we will continue to develop an innovative, inclusive, inspirational, and collaborative climate of academic excellence for our scholars. We will continue to challenge students to the highest academic standards and empower our children to exceed expectations and reach their maximum potential. Under my leadership, Wilton Manors will be home to positive character development where we will equip our students with a skill set that will make them successful adults, positive citizens, and leaders in the careers of tomorrow. I am an advocate of learning, and I will fight for equitable opportunities for all of our students and staff. I believe in celebrating the achievement of our students and staff, while embracing the greatness of our community. 


    As I continue to build relationships within the greater Wilton Manors community, I pledge to honor the diversity that exists within our school and city, while enhancing an already strong atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. I look forward to working with and supporting all stakeholders to add to the rich history, culture, and legacy of the city of Wilton Manors. We will cultivate strong relationships and partnerships, and expect shared responsibility for our school, our community, and the world around us. As an International Baccalaureate School, we will continue to empower our kings and queens to be lifelong learners who can lead through challenges in the classroom, locally, nationally, and on a global scale. Our IB learners will continue to be Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open Minded, Caring, Risk Takers, Balanced, and Reflective. I have a true open-door policy and welcome the opinions and ideas of others. Working hand in hand, I am confident that all issues and concerns can be rectified with positive results. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.” At Wilton Manors Elementary, we will continue to develop the whole child.  I want to thank you all for your amazing support, and let you know that the best is yet to come.
