We warmly welcome you to our school's website. At Floyd M Stork Elementary, we are dedicated to providing a nurturing and enriching educational experience for every student. Our committed staff, engaging curriculum, and supportive community work together to create a positive and inclusive learning environment.
The mission of Stork School is to provide a safe, positive, collaborative learning environment focused on high expectations of staff, students, and families through a rigorous standards based curriculum while emphasizing traits of outstanding character, in order to achieve academic success and personal excellence. Our school will be a collaborative culture with a focus on learning for all!.
On behalf of Assistant Principal Bridget Travis, the teachers and staff, and I, welcome you to the 2023/2024 school year. The Stork Elementary team is excited about starting this year with new staff, new students, and a new vision. This year’s theme is “Shining Readers, Future Leaders”, which brings this all together!
Mrs. Travis and I are very familiar with the community and school district, as we are both long-term residents in the area. Our children are students within the district, so we have the experience of both parent and educator when it comes to our school district.
My style as a principal is to be out of the office and “on the ground” with the students, teachers, and staff. I feel this is the best way to monitor the tempo of campus, progress, and quality of your child’s education. I take it as a personal responsibility that you have entrusted your child’s early education to me.
As a wife of a retired police officer, I am very cognizant of issues that occur throughout our nation when it comes to student, staff, and parent safety and security. I take these issues seriously and am always open to your suggestions, concerns, and questions.
This school year is going to be a fabulous year as we guide our students to aim high, strive to be shining readers, and leaders at Stork!
