    Principal's Message

     Hello and welcome to McInnis Elementary School's website.  I am delighted that you have taken the opportunity to learn more about our school.   McInnis Elementary, home of the Bobcats, has been proudly serving families since 1937. Our staff is excited to continue the long standing tradition of excellence.  Located in DeLeon Springs, we serve Pre-K through fifth grade students. 

    McInnis is a Plus One school.  This program adds one hour to the school day.  The additional hour is used for academic purposes, allowing more time to be spent in core content areas such a math and reading.  During the additional time in both those subjects, all teachers work with students in small groups.  To utilize the best instructional practices, teachers work collaboratively with one another and with resource and special area teachers to align instruction with standards and student needs.              

     Partnership with our students, their families and the stakeholders of our school community is the key to our success.  I would like to personally invite you to take advantage of the many opportunities to become involved in our school community.  We are fortunate to have a supportive PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and School Advisory Council. 

     "It is our mission that McInnis staff, students, families, and community work together to encourage life-long learning in order to reach our goals." Without question, our teachers and staff are dedicated to providing the best education possible to our students.  The commitment to providing a safe, quality learning environment is evident from the moment you step foot on our campus.

     If I can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I am looking forward to a successful and productive school year.  Please know that my door is always open.
