Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Coconut Grove Elementary School, home of the Stingrays. I am so very proud to be able to serve in the capacity of Principal at this “A” rated school where the administration, faculty, and staff work tirelessly each day to set high expectations and provide our students with rigorous curriculum and instructional practices that maximize each child’s potential. We strive to ensure that the educational foundation your child receives will provide him or her with the skill sets necessary for becoming accomplished citizens in our rapidly changing world.

As such, we aspire to provide all stakeholders with exceptional service. If at any time you feel that the service you receive does not meet these standards, I urge you to contact my office at (305) 445-7876. Our goal is that your experience, as a valued member of our school community, reflects a culture of learning, respect, and quality.

If for any reason your concerns cannot be addressed by my office, please contact the Central Region Stakeholder Relations Department at (305) 499-5050.

I look forward to working jointly with each of you, and I am confident that, through the efforts of all school community members, we will continue to strive towards excellence by cultivating a safe and nurturing learning environment that is reflective of high-quality education and promotes academic success.

Kristin E. Hayes, Ed.S.
