School Message

Dear Zora Neale Hurston Elementary School Family:

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! I am looking forward to seeing all of you and hope you had a restful and safe summer.


It has been a year that no one could have dreamed up. It is hard to remember life before the masks, hand sanitizers and social distancing guidelines.  Yet, in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, we have united together to  meet the needs of our children.  I am very proud of our faculty, staff, parents and community and I want to thank you.


Despite all the challenges we experienced, I am excited to report once again that we have many accomplishments to celebrate. 

  • STEM Gold School

  • Fairchild Challenge School

  • Cambridge Global Challenge School

  • Dream in Green School

  • Golden School Award again for the 8th year in a row

  • Gold and Silver winners for the district Science Fair Competition

  • Placement in the Superintendent’s Honors Choir

  • Successful Robotics, Drama, Cheerleading, and Chorus Clubs


    We really proved that we were UNSTOPPABLE through our resilience, creativity, and determination.  Thus, our theme for this school year is… Strong Alone- Unstoppable Together!


    Let’s commit now to providing the best possible experience for our children during the virtual teaching phase and beyond.  Let’s remember that we are Unstoppable Together and make 2020-2021 our best year yet!
