Message from the Principal

Greetings, Sea Turtles!

This is your principal, Brian Allen, checking in for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. We are thrilled to show off our new school and hope you enjoyed meeting your teacher/s and touring the school. It’s going to be an exciting year! Please be on the lookout for updates via email and phone through our School Messenger System. We plan to provide helpful information that will serve to provide a successful school year for your children and you.

At Surf City Elementary, we believe communication between students, parents, teachers and support staff is the key to success! We aim to provide exceptional customer service to assist you along the way. If you feel you are not receiving the proper amount of communication, please let me know as we aim to meet the needs of each and every one of our families.

It is our goal to create a school that is inclusive of our community and one that represents the many qualities that makes Surf City Elementary such a great place. We are the Sea Turtles, watch us SURF! SURF stands for the positive behavior traits we teach each day at Surf City Elementary. SURF stands for S (Self-Control), U (Understanding), R (Responsibility), and F (Fairness). We encourage families to discuss these expectations at home, too.

We have assembled a staff of highly qualified individuals that have come together to create our Sea Turtle Family. Our teachers are amazing and I can’t wait for you to see them shine! Please trust that we have your children’s best interests at heart and we make all decisions based around students. We let student data and student strengths and weaknesses drive all our decisions. It is our mission to gain your trust from day one. We look forward to this opportunity. Together we will do BIG things for our community!

As your principal, I look forward to getting to know each and every one of your children on a personal level to ensure they are receiving the education they deserve. We will meet individual student needs and focus on celebrations and accomplishments. Please know I am available with a lending ear when you have concerns or celebrations.

I am beyond thrilled with the challenges ahead and see them as a way to help our community grow and produce model citizens that seek to give back to society. We treat all children with fairness and kindness and I so look forward to our journey together!
