Dear Students and Parents:
I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. I am honored to serve as your assistant principal for the fourth year. South Miami Heights Elementary School is a building that is comprised of grades PreK-5. We provide opportunities in the areas of: intervention, enrichment, character education, Specials (Music, Art, PE, Technology, Media), and technology integration. Our school values traditional, yet rigorous opportunities in learning. Our teachers use exemplary instructional strategies that are flexible to the needs of our student population, and utilize multiple data points in planning for instruction.
The staff at SMHE is committed to providing a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the classroom.
We recognize that parental involvement is at the heart of student success at SMHE. We cherish the importance of home-school partnerships, and we are committed to the hearts and minds of every child. Please consider joining our P.T.A. and volunteer programs as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to our school’s programs.
We are so glad you are part of the South Miami Heights family. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any questions, comments or concerns.
