Principal’s Message

Dear Coral Reef Elementary School Families,

I hope you are all safe and well. It is with great excitement that we open the 2020-2021 school year “Leading the Way!” Our mission remains to empower students to achieve excellence in education through mastery of academic skills necessary to pursue a life-long love of learning, acknowledge their membership in a global community and develop knowledge and respect for their own and other cultures, while developing a social conscience and respect for the environment.

It is with great pride that I inform you that CRE was designated a “School of Excellence” by the Florida State Board of Education for the second consecutive year. I am also excited to inform you that over the summer we received news that CRE earned the Gold Designation in S.T.E.M. Additionally, we also received the Golden Apple School Award as well as numerous Fairchild Challenge, Youth Fair, Odyssey of the Mind and SECME Science Competition Awards. We could not have achieved these awards and CRE would not be the stellar school that it is without our phenomenal teachers, outstanding PTA, amazing students and you!!!

At Coral Reef our teachers continue to strive to enhance their instructional capacity by participating in endless Professional Development courses focusing in technology and are eager to share what they have learned. No doubt this will be another year where we will continue to lead the way and exceed all expectations. School officially begins on August 31st for all students using My School Online for the remainder of Phase 1. In an effort to acquaint you with this new platform an Orientation is scheduled to be held the week of August 24th . I invite you and your children to join us for this Week of Welcome. For the latest updates, I urge you to follow Miami-Dade County Public Schools on social media. This year our annual “Meet & Greet” will take place utilizing a virtual format on August 28th. Information regarding your child’s Zoom Meeting ID and password is forthcoming. In the meantime, please know that we are so excited to have you and your family at CRE! Thank you for entrusting your children to us. We look forward to working together with you to ensure the best elementary educational experience available.
