Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

On behalf of the outstanding educators and staff at Maya Angelou Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. The administrators, faculty and staff work diligently every day to provide rigorous relevant curricula for our students, in a safe learning environment. We look forward to another academically enriching and exciting school year where we will continue to motivate, inspire and help our students achieve their academic goals.

This year, as a result of our students’ improved academic performance the school received a “B” rating from the Florida Department of Education. Our theme for the 2022-2023 year is “Together We Are Reaching New Heights”  I look forward to forming collegial partnerships with you as we work together to ensure that every child becomes a life-long learner and reaches their academic potential through enriching curriculum, engaging hands-on activities, and explicit instruction from our amazing teachers and coaches.

It is my heartfelt privilege to serve as the Principal at Maya Angelou Elementary, I sincerely believe that a school environment that is collaborative draws on the strength of all stakeholders and fosters a positive school climate that makes a difference in the lives of our students. I look forward to meeting and working with you to continue the tradition of excellence.

Have a Great Year!

Dr. Donna  M. Lewis-Austin
