Dear Parents & Families

Growing and Glowing Into 2023-2024

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the new academic year at Martin Luther King, Jr Elementary School.  I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your children.

At Martin Luther King, Jr Elementary School, we strive to provide a safe and inclusive learning environment that encourages academic excellence, personal growth, and social responsibility. We believe that every child has the potential to succeed, and we are committed to helping each student reach their full potential.

Our dedicated team of teachers and staff are committed to providing the best possible education to all of our students. We have a rigorous academic program that is designed to challenge and inspire our students, while also providing them with the support and guidance they need to succeed.

In addition to our academic program, we offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, clubs, and sports teams that allow our students to explore their interests and develop their talents outside of the classroom.

We believe that communication between parents, teachers, and students is essential to the success of our school community. We encourage you to stay involved in your child’s education by attending school events, volunteering, and communicating regularly with your child’s teachers.

Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education. We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure a successful and rewarding academic year.

Mrs. Bentley-Brown
