While saying our tough goodbyes to Mrs. Linda Lee Holloway, we are also welcoming our new school secretary, Angela Lucas!

Mrs. Lucas joined the school district in April of this year.  She has been a resident of Naples since 1980.  She is excited to be working in the school she once attended as an elementary student! She's a mom to six fun, wonderful kids. Needless to say, she knows a thing or two about bumps, bruises, band-aids, and how to love your children as her own.

Please feel free to drop by to meet her in person!  WELCOME TO NAPLES, MRS. LUCAS!



      Chess Club has come to Naples Elementary!!


Our students now have the opportunity to learn or master the art of Chess. Every Wednesday from 2:30 to 3:20, our 4th and 5th graders have the option of participating in Chess Club. With the help of Michael Cardinal, a junior at BFHS, the students will learn the rules of Chess and compete against other students.  Playing Chess  from childhood has been scientifically proven to improve learning, thinking, analytical power, and decision making abilities. Thank you to Mrs. Sheila Lavala for helping us get our club started.

From The Principal

Welcome Back To School!


September 5, 2017
Dear Naples Elementary School Community,
As your busy summers come to an end, I would like to say, “Welcome!”  Welcome to Naples Elementary!  Whether you are returning or joining us for the first time, we are glad to have you here! 
This year is going to be one of discovery and adventure for all of us.  I personally am excited to see what is in store!  As many of you may know, this is my first year as principal at Naples.  Boundary County has been my home for over 12 years.  During that time, I have had the pleasure of teaching at BCMS, as well as teaching 3rd Grade at Mount Hall.  For the past 4 years, I have worked in the district administration office as the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment.  This past spring, the opportunity to bring that position here to Naples while serving as principal presented itself.  The ability to be back in a school with students and teachers was something I couldn’t pass-up.  So here I am!  I will share more about myself as the year goes on, but the focus right now is getting the Naples team of staff and students off to a strong, solid start! The excitement for the first day of school is overwhelming! 
Our primary goals for 2017-2018 (and beyond) are academic success and school pride.  The teaching staff hasn’t changed this year; that is a great kick-start for achievement.   The team has already been meeting to discuss how they can best prepare a solid foundation for our Naples learners.  Expectations will be high.  Each teacher brings a special dynamic to your child’s learning experience.  The students will be academically challenged with a safe and loving approach from us all.
School pride is another focus.  When students, their families, and the staff feel a sense of pride in their school, they are more likely to step up and drive for excellence and achievement.  We will be working to make Naples look ALIVE!  Mr. Roy is tough, but he cannot do it alone.  There will be projects which will involve everyone.  There may come a time we need extra hands to make light work.  If you’re ever interested, please let us know and we will find something that suits you! 
I will begin to close this letter with the school and district motto.  Three simple words, which can be applied in numerous ways:  Safe. Civil. Productive.  We will continue to weave these words into the fabric of how we do business at Naples.  Please encourage your children to be mindful of their choices, actions, and focus on these concepts at home. 
As I said earlier, we are in for a year of discovery and adventure!  Thank you for entrusting all of us here at Naples Elementary School with your most prized possessions.  We will do our best to strengthen them and set them on a path of reaching their highest goals, dreams, and aspirations!
Please come visit any time!  Our doors are open!  I look forward to meeting each and every one of you this year!

Always Learning,
Robin Merrifield
Naples Elementary Principal
