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 the highest priority. Our staff at Henry M. Flagler takes a proactive approach to ensure the success of each and every student. We value our diverse group of learners which includes our parents and members of the general community. We set the highest learning expectations for all of our students and provide a quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.
We are successful academically due to the support of teachers, dedicated staff, students, parents and partnerships forged with our community partners. We strive for all students to experience a well-rounded, challenging program that helps each child harness their unique abilities and strengths while working diligently on opportunity areas. Our school is proud to offer a Full Time Gifted Program, Extended Foreign Language Program (EFL) in grades K-5, three VPK /Pre-K SPED classes, two full size computer labs, and one fully equipped Science lab.
As parents, you are the most critical component to the success of HMF. You must take an active role with your child and provide an atmosphere that promotes quality work habits. Your support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn on a daily basis. I strongly encourage you to be an active partner of your child’s education by making sure they arrive to school on time and attend school regularly. Please ensure that your child reads each and every night. Academics require practice, just like piano, baseball, and dance.
There are many ways that you can become involved at school. Check out our awesome PTA. They do an outstanding job of supporting our many school programs. Your participation in PTA fundraisers is a critical and with your continued support and involvement, we will continue to make great strides in preparing our students for success in future schooling as well as career readiness.
Your child’s teacher is your best resource and I encourage you to build a positive relationship with them. I look forward to working with you as a partner in educating your children. I am honored to be your Principal at Henry M. Flagler and I look forward to continue working with our community.
