Principal's Message

    Dear Tropical Families,

    We made it! We hope you had a restful summer!  As we reflect on the past year, we have been hard at work planning the year to come. The past year has presented us with unimaginable challenges, but also incredible opportunities for big change!

    I want to acknowledge that not every family feels the same way about returning to school in person. Many families are excited and ready for full-time reconnection for their children. Others feel anxious or unsure about potential risks. I can promise you that your child’s health is our number one priority, now and always. We know that being in school is critically important for your child’s growth and success.

    Our theme this year will be “Return of the Toucans!”   As portrayed in the movie Star Wars, we encourage all Toucans to discover the “force” within to succeed in school.

    The start of the school year can be exciting but also daunting for students as they take on different subjects, learn new concepts and make new friends. By supporting and learning together in a positive environment, we all grow individually and collectively.  We look forward to partnering with you to provide the guidance and support that our Toucans need to grow and be successful as they continue their educational journey. We look forward to a year of learning and fun while being aware of the need to grow both socially and emotionally for an ever-changing world.

    May the Force Be With You!


    Educationally yours,

    Robert N. Schneider
