Canales_Yanelys (2)Welcome!
As the new principal at Miami Lakes K-8 Center, I am delighted and privileged to be a member of such an amazing community of students, teachers, staff, parents, and community members.  My goal is to provide the students with an environment that fosters high academic achievement, promotes critical thinking, creates productive citizens and caring individuals. Students will be provided with challenging educational experiences that encourage collaboration and problem solving.  My biggest priorities are that students become lifelong learners by building the foundation that they need in a safe and nurturing learning environment.  I am excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year!  Our students will gain hands on experience as they learn about the world around them.
Our theme for this school year will be … Anchoring Down for Success! 
I encourage all parents to become actively involved in their child’s education and maintain an open line of communication with us.  Working together, we can make a difference for every student.  I am looking forward to an exceptional school year at Miami Lakes K-8 Center where we “Expect the Best.”
