Principal's Message

Welcome to John Gandy Elementary School, home of the Gandy Tigers! We are so excited that you are interested in or already a part of what we do!

At John M. Gandy, our staff works diligently to create a safe, caring environment conducive to learning. But we also know that character needs to be developed, just as academics need to be taught. So we recognize students who demonstrate these character traits each grading period: perseverance, accountability, willingness to learn, and service. Our school theme, PAWS, is meant to inspire students to persevere, be accountable for their actions, have a willingness to learn, and provide service to others.

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the principal at John M. Gandy Elementary. I am grateful to our supportive community, generous PTA, and active community volunteers. It is my goal to partner with you to continue to enrich the elementary school experience for your children.

Thank you for sharing your children with us every school day. If there is ever a time I can assist you in making your child’s experience at John Gandy more positive, please contact me.
