Dear North Fork Elementary Family,
It is with great excitement and honor that I begin the 2019-2020 school year as your principal. I have had the pleasure of serving the students, parents, staff members, business partners and community members of Broward County Public Schools for over sixteen years and anticipate that this year will be one of the best!
This school year, you will continue to see a targeted focus on academic instruction, the expansion in the collaborative efforts of the school community, the development of the school culture through my support of existing initiatives and programs, and a welcoming focus on safety and security.
Our teachers will expand their instructional practices by engaging in professional development sessions and professional learning communities that target their specific needs as well as the needs of our students. We will continue to provide effective standards-based instruction, specialized instruction and differentiated instruction for students to meet their individual needs
To promote the student culture, students will have the opportunity to participate in various extracurricular activities including 21stCentury Grant opportunities. I have high expectations for our students and will work diligently to ensure that every student can reach their fullest potential. I am elated about the academic and extracurricular opportunities that are being offered and encourage you to support our students through it all. My goal is for every scholar at North Fork Elementary to gain the knowledge, experience, and life skills necessary for success and I will work with students, parents, community partners and business partners to achieve this goal.
I also encourage parents and community members to share their ideas, feedback and concerns as we look to support the development of a parent organization that would promote the improvement of our school and our community. I look forward to helping our parents build their organization while working together to support the students of North Fork. Please accept my invitation to become an active member of the North Fork Elementary family by joining the School Advisory Council (SAC), the School Advisory Forum (SAF), or the mission to establish a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) or Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). I wholeheartedly support all stakeholders and I welcome and value your input. My door is always open so please feel free to stop by at any time.
Our school grade goal for the 2019-2020 school year is a B and there is no doubt in my mind that we can earn it. I look forward to an exceptional school year that will prove to be nothing less than amazing!
