Principal's Message

  • Denise Hanson, PrincipalDear Park Springs Elementary Families and Community,
    I am excited to introduce myself as the new Principal of Park Springs Elementary, home of Panthers! It is truly an honor to continue to serve this community in the pursuit of excellence.  Park Springs in the Coral Springs Zone is known for its commitment to quality instruction and strong partnerships with families.

    Over the past 23 years, I’ve held various positions within Broward County Public Schools.  Most current as assistant principal at Park Springs for the last 6 years.  I consider myself a leader who believes all children deserve a world-class education.  I will spend time getting to know the strengths of your child, areas for growth, and learning style.  I plan to set goals with your children and celebrate their many accomplishments.  I will also ensure that the children of Park Springs feel valued, respected, and included.  We will continue to celebrate our difference and learn how our differences make us unique.

    Our faculty and staff are highly qualified and committed to serving ALL students and families.  Our school’s vision for the 2021-2022 school year is clear:  Park Springs Elementary will provide a safe environment where ALL learners are empowered to reach their fullest potential.

     As principal, my goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy, safe, and ready to learn.  The Covid-19 Pandemic has created many challenges for everyone, especially our students.  We are excited to welcome back our students face to face and address their social-emotional needs so that we can concentrate on their academic success.  We know that our children and families have demonstrated remarkable resilience over the last 18 months.  I am committed to leading Park Springs into the next phase of recovery, rebuilding, and engagement.

     I’ve had the privilege of leading at Park Springs Elementary for the past 6 years and I am proud of the great work that we achieved.  However, my greatest achievement comes not professionally but personally, as I am the proud mother of a son, Eddie who will be heading off to study at Ave Maria University this Fall.  I look forward to including your children as part of my extended family and will work hard to make sure they receive the high level of education that I would expect for my own child.

     Collaboration with your child’s school is key to ensure a successful school journey.  I encourage your active support and participation as we seek to provide a positive learning environment for all our students.  Our new theme for the 21-22 school year is PSE Is Out of This World!  We are excited to provide a stellar experience for our students and families of PSE! 

    Our PTO, School Advisory Council, and School Advisory Forum are always looking for participants.  I urge you to join and support PTO in whatever manner your schedule allows.

    Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring my experience to our wonderful community.  I look forward to working with you and your children.  Communication is key and I am always available via phone, email, or for in-person visits.  I will be working this summer to ensure a smooth transition and opening in August.  Please stop by to say hello anytime.   A Principal Meet and Greet and Open House dates will be forthcoming.

    I look forward to an exciting year.


    Denise Hanson

    Proud Principal of Park Springs Elementary
