Dear MLK Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School (MLK), the home of the Crusaders! It is a pleasure to serve as the Principal of MLK for the seventh year. The staff and I are committed to providing your child with a well-rounded education. We pride ourselves in providing students a safe and positive community that fosters character development while promoting high academic achievement. This year our school theme is MLK: IT STARTS WITH ME! We want our students to be motivated and inspired to achieve greatness.
At MLK we expect our students to adhere to our MLK Motto everyday: Today I will be… (M)indful of my manners, (L)ooking out for others and myself and (K)eeping my mind on learning. When students demonstrate the MLK motto in action, they are rewarded.
Also, please know that you play an important role in your child’s education. We want to partner with you to support your child’s success. It is through this partnership that your child can continue to grow and thrive. Our staff is ready to work with you to support your child’s success at MLK.
If there is any way we can help, please do not hesitate to contact us at 585-3715 or stop by our school office.
Cruz Sanchez-Leal, Ed.D.
