“Dare to Dream Big Dreams”

“First, think. Second, believe. Third, dream. And finally, dare.” – Walt Disney

Welcome to Florence Avenue Elementary School, the home of the Falcons! It is a great privilege and honor to serve as the Principal of such a diverse community of learners that hail from a historic and proud section of our township! Thanks to the commitment of a dedicated and exceptional staff, Florence Avenue is a bustling educational environment where our scholars are encouraged daily to dream big dreams. In collaboration with an active group of parents, focused staff, and engaged scholars we endeavor to provide a quality education that exemplifies high expectation and achievement.

With a population of over 600 students backed by supportive parents, caring neighbors, and a devoted staff, we strive to build a community of inquiry, where all of our stakeholders work to instill a love of life-long learning in the hearts and minds of our beloved students. We work hard to build healthy relationships that will support the achievement of every student. This task is essential because the elementary years are a critical time in the development of the skills necessary to achieve personal academic success.

At Florence Avenue Elementary, we strive to provide our scholars with 21st Century skills and competencies in both academics and the arts. We are uncompromising in our focus on rigor and student engagement in the areas of Math, Science, Social Studies, English Language Arts, Fine Arts, and World Language. Our determination is to create self-directed learners who are exposed to diverse experiences, engaged in the optimized use of technology, and coached by caring adults to maximize their potential.

We recognize that we have a fiduciary responsibility not only to educate our students on academic subjects, but also to assist their families and communities to strengthen each scholar’s moral fiber, engage their right inner moral compass, and instill a sense of community. We endeavor to establish tenets of good conduct and character, and promote positive self-esteem and awareness through classroom interactions, school assemblies, student council, various clubs, PTA, PBSIS, and other activities.

Lastly, I encourage all stakeholders to participate in our P.T.A. and monthly “Meet and Greet the Principal.” These are student-focused functions that provide a venue for all community members to contribute to the advancement of the scholars here at Florence Avenue Elementary School. They yield powerful and purposeful relationships between home, school and the wider Florence Avenue Elementary school community. Together we will teach our children to dare to “Dream Big Dreams!”

Sean Evans, Principal
