    Welcome to the 2023 – 2024 School Year!

    Dear Tropical Families,

    I hope you had a restful summer!   We are excited to greet our returning Tropical Toucans as well as our new Toucans!  As you may be aware, last year our students achieved some of the highest reading and math scores in Broward County! We can’t wait to build upon these successes!

    Our staff has been hard at work planning for the year to come.  The start of the school year can be exciting but also daunting for students as they take on different subjects, learn new concepts and make new friends. By supporting and learning together in a positive environment, we all grow individually and collectively.

    Our theme this year will be related to Legos!   

                                     Good Friends Build Each Other Up!

    Please consider being a part of our school by joining our PTA, SAC and any other positions to support our students and staff. We look forward to partnering with you to provide the guidance and support that our students need to grow and be successful each day. We will continue to focus on learning and fun while being aware of the need to grow both socially and emotionally for an ever-changing world.

    If there is anything that you need, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!

    Educationally Yours,


    Robert N. Schneider, Principal
