  • Super Cyber Summer

    Summer Greetings Bullpups! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and had a wonderful Memorial Day honoring our Veterans. I wanted to take a moment to share some "Super Cyber Summer" links. Summer vacation is a great opportunity to instill reading and learning habits in children, since they have free time, and it is a very fun hobby. Summer learning activities for children are an essential part of their academic development. Children on summer vacation should keep reading and learning even if they don’t have homework and have gotten good grades. Reading does not have to be something that children feel as an obligation, but it is part of their leisure, of their free time. Summer reading and learning activities have enormous benefits, and not just for children. Summer activities keeps children’s minds active, and an active mind keeps them away from boredom – boredom is the enemy of any mother or father who works or has things to do at home. Please use the links below to connect to our Super Cyber Summer activities planned for you and your family!

Principal's Message

  • Picture of Principal Nichols

    Dear Families,
    On behalf of the administration and staff at Michigan Avenue Elementary (MAE), a warm and friendly welcome to our school for the 2021-22 school year!  Her at Michigan Avenue Elementary, we are kind, responsible, and safe.  We are committed to creating and communicating a safe and positive environment for students, parents, staff, and community. 
    It is an honor to serve as the Principal of Michigan Avenue Elementary School, and a pleasure to watch the growth in students throughout Osceola County.  I am delighted to be a part of the community and Principal at MAE.  It is heartwarming to see all the accomplishments made and memories created throughout each school year. It gives me great joy to see our students excel in and out of the classroom. I am proud of our athletic and artistic students who continue to amaze me with their talent and recognition at district and state competitions. In addition, parent participation at events held at the school is thriving, and it is always wonderful to witness as we strive to build capacity and sustainable relationships among all stakeholders involved in the journey to academic success for children. This includes parent involvement in the School Advisory Council (SAC), Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), and Title I Parent Involvement events held during the school year. A warm thank you to our parents for your involvement. Research demonstrates a tremendous amount of a student’s life success is determined by the parent.
    Michigan Avenue Elementary is dedicated to our Mission to cultivate a collaborative community of students, parents, and teachers to ensure all can learn and grow into creative well-rounded individuals. This dedication and commitment shared by all staff, parents, and community help make MAE the amazing school it is and will continue to be from year to year. So, join us as we provide an extraordinary learning experience for your child (ren).
    Please do not hesitate to call me with questions regarding your child.  I welcome your suggestions, and I encourage your interest and active participation in preparing our students and community for the future.  I have an open door policy and welcome you to contact me by phone, in person, or by e-mail at diane.crooknichols@osceolaschools.net.  Thank you for sharing your child (ren) with me.  I look forward to a successful 2021-22 school year together!
    Kind Regards,
    Diane Crook-Nichols
