Principal's Welcome- Mrs. Heather Hedman- Devaughn

"Alone we can do so little, together we can accomplish great things." 

This is a famous little quote that means so much as we begin together! I proudly welcome you to Manatee Bay for 2016/2017 year. Our theme this year is, Manatee Bay Elementary: A SUPER MANATEAM! 

Manatee Bay has been open since 2002 and we have seen the incredible power of teamwork over the past 14 years of this school’s history. This year we celebrate, embrace and learn how to further connect with the many teams that we are part of, family, City, community, faith organizations, sports, and of course this amazing school. 

YOU are an important member in our Mana-team and I gladly welcome you to join us full steam! Stay connected through our website, e-mail blasts, newsletters and ongoing communication. Get involved through becoming a parent volunteer, PTA Committee Member, SAC (School Advisory Council), SAF (School Advisory Forum), or just your steady support at home reinforcing and strengthening the learning!

At Manatee Bay we truly believe in reaching and teaching the whole child to create life-long learners. Our innovative and student centered programs allow us all to connect, grow, learn, and have fun together. I am so glad to know that YOU are joining us for this amazing adventure!

Please know that I am always available for any questions or concerns. We are a Mana-Team and Together We Win!
