Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

It’s always a great day to be a Gator!

We are looking forward to a joyful year. The majority of our staff is returning committed to providing a rigorous curriculum in a safe and caring environment. The Core Knowledge scope and sequence is our foundation and  is based on the premise that we have much to learn from our past. Studying the culture-shaping events, texts, scientific theories, and works of art of those who came before us, helps our students begin to understand the events of today. Every student should be culturally and scientifically literate regardless of race, gender, and socio-economic status.

We also understand that building a strong person of character is an important part of education. As such, we will continue to reward our monthly Core Virtues program in the classroom. Our goal is to foster honest, respectful, cooperative citizens who demonstrate integrity and perseverance in their daily lives. We appreciate the joint nature of this objective between the classroom and the home and welcome your support as we strive to meet our stated mission.

Thank you for your continued efforts to learn new things with your child(ren). Parent support at home is key to learning at school. Be aware of your child’s social media presence and passive screen time and do all you can to avoid those unexcused absences. Our next chapter is going to be amazing. GO GATORS!

Call us with any questions and we’ll do our best to help.
