Dear San Pablo Families,

    As principal of San Pablo Elementary, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year.  We are excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  Our mission is to make every child feel welcomed, connected and part of our Sea Turtle family.  We have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning.  We analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement for every child.  Our 20th consecutive year as an A school is a testament to the dedication of each and every employee here at San Pablo.

    I’d like to take a moment to give a shout out to our extraordinary custodial team who worked tirelessly this summer to make our little school crystal clean and ready for students.  In addition, they moved a remarkable amount of furniture to facilitate quite a few classroom changes.  Our sincere thanks to Ms. Amba, Mr. Raulyn and Mr. Joseph! 

    I hope you will join us for Open House on Thursday, August 29th.  Kindergarten through second grade will meet from 6:00-6:45 and third through fifth grade from 7:00-7:45.  This is a great  opportunity to share information and expectations for the school year and we look forward to seeing you there.

    I am honored to serve as the principal of San Pablo.  What a privilege it is to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments at 904-247-5947 or via email at manabats@duvalschools.org.

    Once again, welcome back!  Let’s make it another super year at San Pablo together!
