    Principal's Message

    Hello Soaring Eagles Community,

    Welcome back!  We are extremely excited to have you as a part of our school community.  We enjoyed a tremendously successful school year, and look forward to an even better one ahead.  DeBary Elementary is recognized as an “A” school and again was awarded the Golden School Award for attendance and the prestigious Five Star School Award for outstanding parent and community involvement.

    Our goals this year include maintaining our “A” school, Golden School and Five Star School status.  We will be focusing on delivering a high level of rigorous and relevant instruction in the classroom as we make the transition to the Florida Standards; we will continue providing parents with meaningful feedback through frequent and purposeful communication and will provide learning opportunities that will prepare students for career and college readiness while nurturing happy children.  We will continue to embed technology into classroom instruction by adding blended classroom formats and BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) capabilities into the classroom with students. 

    The staff at DeBary is dedicated to providing the best educational experience possible for our students.  This is done through the team effort of all stakeholders, including staff, parents, students, and community members. As a team we all work collaboratively to create an environment conducive to learning and student achievement.  We are successful because we provide a rigorous academic program for our students in a safe, nurturing, and supportive atmosphere.  Every student is important and we believe every student will succeed.  It is this combination of high quality teaching in the classroom, the commitment of our families to promote and support learning, and the desire of our students to do their very best that makes DeBary Elementary a special place to be.

    We are fortunate to have a very active and supportive Parent Teacher Organization and we always welcome parents to serve as members of our School Advisory Council.  We will continue to develop fundamental partnerships within our community and encourage you to visit often and be involved in our school and in your child’s learning.  Please check the monthly calendar of events in the Soaring Eagles News for upcoming activities to attend.  Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to a great year!
