Principal's Message

Dear Families, 

As Principal I welcome you to Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary! We are so excited to have, not only our students, but also families, and community members working together to inspire and encourage the great minds of our students this school year.   

Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary is a great place to teach and learn! Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students are our pride and joy and we are dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience.  We are determined to guide our readers to be successful in literacy and encourage our mathematicians to think outside the box as we connect academic supports to meet the students' needs and level them up to success.  While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we also believe that it is critical to deliver character education through positive behavior interventions in order to create a pathway leading to success for all students. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School follows the K.I.D.S model and knows that all our students can and will follow: Kind to all, I respect others, Do my best, Safety First to ensure we treat our neighbors with courtesy and respect. 

To our families, we believe you are essential to the success of our students and encourage you to share ideas and participate within our Parent Teacher Organization as we coordinate opportunities with our community that make school fun and engaging to learn.

We will have a great year of teaching and learning as we work together for our students.  
Team Work makes the Dream Work!
