Principal's Message

  • Mr. Balchaitis

    Greetings Floranada Families,
    It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the principal of Floranada Elementary School. I am honored to serve the staff, parents, the community, and, of course, our amazing students.
    Floranada is a very special place that truly embodies the family feeling throughout all aspects of who we are and what we do. 
    Although we are very proud of the academic excellence we achieve each year, our daily goal of creating joyous independent students is even more important. We say it every day that our goal is for “732 students to leave with a smile on their face”.
    We love our students and families and take great pride in serving them. The relationships we have built in this remarkable community continue to grow stronger each year, and we look forward to welcoming our newest Falcons. 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 our new families and work collaboratively to continue the extraordinary legacy here at Floranada.
    Luke Balchaitis
    Floranada Elementary
    The Standard of Excellence
