Principal’s Message

Welcome back for the 2022-2023 school year here at Florida City Elementary (FCE), a “B” school! I hope you have enjoyed your summer break and eagerly anticipating your return for another exciting year of teaching and learning. I would also like to extend a special welcome to any new students and parents joining our FCE family of Little Chiefs this school year. 

Thank you to each of you for supporting our school community, and our students’ continued achievement and success. Even in the unprecedented times that we have come through these past two years, your support proved to be invaluable, and was part of the reason that our school community met and exceeded the academic goals we set last year in achieving the third (3rd) and highest “B” in our school’s academic history under the state’s accountability system. As such, your partnering with us this year school year will be critical to help us maintain and accelerate our momentum. 

Therefore, as we approach the 2022-2023 school year, we endeavor to continue to provide our students with the tools and education needed to help them make leaps forward. We will continue to push our students and school to soar to higher levels of academic achievement and success, as It’s Great to “B” a TOP TEAM. 

Please know that we are here to serve you, and to meet the academic needs of all of our students. We encourage you to continue to partner with us throughout the year, by joining our school’s PTO, as well as take advantage of the many opportunities that will be provided for you to become actively involved in your child’s learning journey.
