I am extremely proud of the efforts of our faculty and staff. Although I am proud of the tremendous effort displayed last year, this year we have a new statewide assessment, the Florida Alternate Assessment (FAA). 

    As we begin this new journey, we are challenged to strengthen our efforts to make a difference in the lives of our students. Our array of talents, as a family, has far-reaching effects toward enhancing a rich, stimulating, and nurturing learning environment for our fantastic students. The beginning of the school year presents many opportunities to reflect and build on our successes, as well as to set new goals. We aim for 90% family participation in decision-making and extra-curricular activities and events. We need our community stakeholders. Please join our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), School Advisory Forum (SAF), and School Advisory Council (SAC).  

    We are steadfast in our theme for the 2023-2024 school year – Student-Centered, Teacher-Supported, and Principal Led Together. We ALL Shine. Every 1 Counts! Collectively, we must continue to commit our efforts to providing our students with an academically stimulating, functional, nurturing, positive, and safe learning environment. It is our goal to continue to exceed expectations.
