Principal’s Message

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am so excited to begin another school year with you and your child(ren). While we have been faced with some challenging times during the previous school year, through everyone’s dedication and hard work we have achieved a school grade of an “A” and Gold STEAM Designation for 2021-2022!

As we enter the new school year, we want to continue on this path of success and continue supporting our academic programs in order to provide the best possible educational experience for all of our students.  As we prepare to tackle new standards and assessments for the upcoming school year, we need the full commitment and support from all of our parents/guardians. School attendance matters now more than ever, and every minute counts. Therefore, I ask that you please ensure that your child attends school on a daily basis and is on time ready to learn. We, in turn, are committed to providing a safe, first-class learning experience, for all of our students. Our goal will be to recognize the individual strengths of each student and build on those strengths in order to prepare our students for the future. 

Please stay informed with the latest information and events by visiting our school website at and our Twitter page @GulfstreamES. Lastly, I urge you to get involved and join our PTO and/or EESAC to partner with us in making decisions that impact our school community and benefit our school.

Together, we are “Surfing to Success!”
