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 fifth 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. We know the 2020-2021 school year will be like no other. We are excited and ready to help your child succeed in distance learning.
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. It may look different this year, but know that we will continue to recognize students that participate in online learning. This year’s theme is One Team, One Dream; Believe and Achieve. We believe every child will succeed at MLK!
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. We encourage you to be a part of our Remind (Text Messaging App) so you can receive up to date information. If you are not a part of our group, text 81010 and in the message line write @mlkhanford.
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.
