    Welcome to Pasadena Lakes Elementary School!  I am humbled and grateful for another year to serve as your Principal. We will seize every opportunity to excel, continue setting high expectations for all our students and ensure they have every opportunity for success.  I am delighted to say that we enter this new school year increasing our school grade to a B and we are extremely proud!  The staff and students have worked tremendously hard to move our phenomenal school, and the best is yet to come!
    My belief is that all students can and will learn and education is the avenue in developing citizens that will lead society.  It is our goal to afford every child a differentiated learning experience and provide them with a foundation to equip them beyond their elementary school years.
    I strongly believe in the home-school connection and you are encouraged to communicate often with your child’s teacher.  As a school, we will always keep you updated with information, activities and important dates via Parent Link, our website, upcoming events tab (on our site), Twitter, Facebook, flyers, etc.  We also welcome you to become involved in the school by volunteering and participating in PTA, SAC (School Advisory Council) or SAF (School Advisory Forum).
    This year, our theme is “To Proficiency and Beyond!!!”.  We are ready to continue the great work to increase student learning and proficiency.  In other words, if we put our mind and effort into reaching our goals, we will!  Pasadena Lakes Elementary is the best school on the planet, and your child will receive the best education provided by the best staff on the planet.  PLE Panthers believe in the whole child including, social-emotional and we will continue with The Leader in Me by 1. Being Proactive, 2. Begin with the End in Mind, 3. Put First things First, 4. Think Win-Win, 5. Seek First to Understand Then to be Understood, 6. Synergize and 7. Sharpen the Saw.  Together, we can do anything!
    Again, I look forward to serving you this year, and my door is always opened for you!
    Pasadena Lakes Panthers, will continue manning the command station to success!  We are going to have an unequivocally amazing year!
