Community Brief from Endeavor Elementary
"Letting the Good Times Roll"
Monday, June 8, 2020

As we close the 2019-2020 school year, I would like to thank our students, teachers and families for rising to the challenge and finishing the year with the same academic rigor we began with in August. I am so proud of what we accomplished and cannot wait to see how our new digital expertise will impact on instruction.     

We were true to our theme of "Let the Good Times Roll" and we created memorable experiences from the Carnival at Meet Your Teacher to the Bayou Blast in December to the virtual dance parties in May and everything in between. I would personally like to recognize our PTA, Partners in Education, SAC Committee members, volunteers, teachers and staff for their efforts in creating a one of a kind environment where children can learn and grow!

Orange County Public Schools and the state for Florida are presently working to determine our next steps and mapping out a plan for the upcoming school year. Making sure our school is safe for our Navigators is my top priority. I recommend that you visit the school district's website at for the most up to date information regarding the 2020-2021 school year.

The front office will remain open Monday through Thursday for registrations and withdrawals with the exception of June 29, 2020, through July 3, 2020. Please contact Ms. Curbelo for assistance in these matters.  

I trust everyone has a safe summer and I look forward to the next school year!

Dr. Ellis and Mr. Diaz welcomed our Navigators and their families at the Endeavor Reverse Car Parade. Teachers, staff, thousands of balloons, signs and decorations lined the parade route to let our students know how much we miss them. Smiles and tears could be seen through car windows.

Teachers and staff had to look twice as the cars rolled up to Endeavor's Reverse Car Parade. Families had decorated their cars in a parade that was meant for them. Thank you for making us feel special and letting us know that you miss us as much as we miss you.

Student Social and Emotional Well Being  
Endeavor's house DJ, Chris, rocked the fifth grade glow party. Students were surprised by guests that randomly appeared on their screens wanting to join in on the neon fun. Thank you to all our teachers that joined in from home.

The festivities ended with a special message from Principal, Dr. Ellis.
