Dear Floral Park-Bellerose Community,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! 

The theme of the 2018-2019 school calendar is “Superpowers for Success.”  As such, it reminds me of a time in my life when superheroes seemed very real.  They possessed superhuman powers and frequently helped others.  They were an inspiration, but I learned that they weren’t real. Today, in the Floral Park-Bellerose School District, superheroes with superpowers are real.  They are manifestations of all the good that we see in our children—their optimism, their desire to help, their resiliency.  When asked to describe superpowers, our children used words like practice, confidence, teamwork, and effort, and phrases like “believe you can achieve” and “education is the key to success.”    

Guided by our community’s commitment to work together to develop creative and critical thinking problem solvers who are fearless in their pursuit of knowledge, we are prepared for an outstanding year of learning.  We are a community dedicated to the intellectual and social-emotional growth of our children and the continuous improvement of all we do in their support. 

Please share in our enthusiasm for an outstanding 2018-2019 school year, and let all in our Floral Park-Bellerose community learn from the wisdom of our children…we are all called to be superheroes for each other.


Michael F. Dantona, Ed.D
