Welcome to Henry M. Flagler Elementary School home of the “Flagler Express!” I take great pleasure in serving as the principal of a school where student achievement and success is a top priority. Our staff at Henry M. Flagler takes an active role and responsibility to ensure the success of every student. We value our community of learners which includes our parents and community members. We set high expectations for learning for all our students and provide a quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.
We are proud to announce that we are an “A” rated and “GOLD” designated S.T.E.A.M. school once again! This means we have successfully infused high levels of academic standards in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) across all grade levels Pre-K- 5th. We have been successful academically due to the support of teachers, dedicated staff, students, parents and community partnerships. We strive for students to experience a well-rounded program that helps them harness their uniqueness and strengths. Our school is proud to offer a Full Time Gifted Program, Extended Foreign Language Program (EFL) in grades K-5, and three VPK /Pre-K SPED classes, two full size computer labs, and one fully equipped Science lab to name a few. Last year we inaugurated a “new” S.T.E.A.M. Robotics Program to expose students to the field of engineering and to promote problem-solving skills and will continue to expand the program this school year!
You, as parents, are the most critical part of our school success. You take an active and crucial role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits. Your support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn. I strongly encourage you to be an active part of your child’s education by making sure they get to school on time and attend school regularly. Please ensure that your child reads and completes their homework every day. Your support will result in higher academic achievement and learning gains!
There are many ways you can get involved at school. Check out our awesome PTA! They do so much to support our school programs. Your participation in the PTA fundraisers is critical and with your continued support and involvement, we will continue to make great strides in preparing our students for success in their future schooling as well as career readiness.
