Principal's Message

Dear Marcell Parents and Community,
I am honored to be back at Marcell once again for another amazing year!  It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back and look forward to seeing and working alongside our parents and community members to continue influencing our students to their fullest potential this 2019-2020 school year.   Of course, what I do, I cannot do alone.  I am supported and embraced by a phenomenal group of teachers at Marcell Elementary that continually encourage each other for the wellbeing of every child and adult on campus. 
Our dedicated teachers spend countless of hours planning and desegregating student data to create a plan of action suited especially for each student on campus.  Research-based best practices are utilized to determine current level of performances and to set new goals for growth and improvement.
Our knowledgeable ladies in the front office are ready to serve our parents and community at all times.  If you care to reach any of your teachers, we are here to serve and to make our students, parents, staff and community equally important or simply have a question you would like to have answered, don’t hesitate to call them for assistance. 
It is my pleasure and privilege to be the principal of this fine institution where everyone’s priority is the all-around growth and development of our students.  Please feel free to contact one of our office personnel or me at (956) 323-6400. I stand readily available to assist.
