School Message

Dear Zora Neale Hurston Elementary School Family:

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year! We are looking forward to another successful and productive year with the boys and girls of this great school. As we begin a new school year, we would like to remind you of just how important your support is to our students.   Working together, we can make a difference. Here are some ways you can make a difference:

  • Setting high expectations for your child
  • Reading with your child for a minimum of 20-30 minutes each day
  • Ensuring that your child completes home learning
  • Talking with your child about their day
  • Making sure your child is prepared for school every day
  • Joining the PTA, becoming a school volunteer and participating in school activities
  • Attending all parent meetings including our monthly Parent Academy Meetings
  • Accessing the Parent Portal, which enable parents to monitor attendance and grades


This year, we will continue to strive to cultivate a positive environment at Zora. We expect to win the “Academy Award” of excellence in 2016-2017. Let’s strive for our best year yet!
