Principal's Message


Principal Duncan

I’d like to welcome you to Andover Elementary School for the second half of 2022-2023 School Year!

Thanks to the support of Parents, the hard work of OUR students, AND Teachers and Staff…Andover Elementary School has been awarded an “A” designation from the State of Florida for the 2021-2022 School Year.

Our goal is to ensure every student has a promising and successful future! To that end, our dedicated teachers and staff work very hard to meet the needs of ALL students and maintain personal connections with our families. YOUR support and participation in this effort by having your child arrive to school on time, each day, is essential, and so is monitoring their progress and homework. Please ask your child to share what they are learning, how their day was, AND (if you have any questions), communicate directly with your child’s teacher.

There is no better way to learn about the AMAZING things we have going on at Andover than by joining our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) OR School Advisory Council (SAC), AND to come to our school events as often as possible. We LOVE having Parents be as involved as possible in YOUR school! You can also work in your student’s classroom as a Class MOM or Class DAD. All Volunteers have to be “Additions” approved and this approval must be renewed EVERY year. If your schedule permits, we’ are always looking for monitors during student Lunch as well. Our doors are always open to address ANY concerns. If it is important to YOU, it’s important to US. To ensure the safety of ALL our children, visitors must sign in at the office for an identification badge.

We are partners with you in your child’s education so open (AND frequent!) communication is essential. We use ConnectOrange to provide weekly updates by phone/email, social media, the Andover Elementary Webpage, and our Marquee…to make sure Parents receive the most updated information about school activities, no matter which platform you look to for information. Our students experience greater success and achieve their educational goals when we ALL work together. If you have ANY questions or concerns about your child’s progress…FIRST, speak with your child about what they are doing in class. Further questions should be directed to your child’s teacher. Our teachers have the most up to date information about your child progress as well as the support of Administration to help YOUR child succeed. I maintain an open-door policy for Teachers, Staff, AND Parents…who may need assistance or have questions.

Thank you for choosing Orange County Public Schools for your child’s education, and of course, trusting OUR teachers and staff at Andover Elementary School with the privilege of working with YOUR children.

Kevin J. Duncan, MA Ed
