    Let the Adventure Begin  
    Mandarin Oaks Elementary School is an "A" school for the 18th year in a row!
    A Florida School of Excellence and Recipient of the Golden School Award 


    I am truly honored to serve as your principal as we celebrate 30 years of excellence at MOE!
    There is much to celebrate:
    • Our 18th straight year earning a school grade of A from the state
    • A 22-point gain in our students' scores from last year
    • 142% of one year's expected growth in reading on iReady student diagnostics across all grade levels
    • 124% progress toward one year's growth in math
    • A model school for Sanford Harmony culture curriculum
    • Recipient of the Golden School Award
    • Designated School of Excellence 

    This year, we will make an even bigger mark and achieve unprecedented things at MOE.  "Let the Adventure Begin" is our unique 2020-2021 theme - a celebration of positivity, creativity, and ingenuity!  We will re-invent how we "teach the whole child" with new shifts in how we support our students.

    I am so excited for you to join us as we make history at Mandarin Oaks Elementary!

    Educationally yours,

    Leigh Butterfield
