Welcome to Frank Borman School

principal derek ethridge
On behalf of the entire staff at Frank Borman Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to our incredible school. Our staff members are dedicated, highly qualified, and always make decisions in the best interest of children. As a collaborative organization, we work together with all members of the school community to do what is best for students. We practice the Kids at Hope philosophy, believing that all students are capable of success…no exceptions!

We have several initiatives that will help ensure we achieve our goals. 1:1 ipads will be distributed to all of our students in grades 5-8, providing never before seen opportunities to increase rigor and problem solving in our classrooms. PBIS is our school-wide discipline plan, helping create consistency in behavioral expectations so our students learn what it takes to be successful. EngageNY, SRA, and Achieve 3000 are just some of the resources used to prepare our students to meet the high demands of the college and career ready standards.

As Principal, I will do my very best to ensure all student are academically and socially successful. I encourage you to become involved through our PTO, parent volunteer program, or meeting with the teacher often to secure a strong partnership between home and school. If there is anything I can do to assist your son or daughter in achieving his or her goals, please do not hesitate to ask. Our office number is (623) 691-5000. We look forward to working with you. Welcome to Frank Borman Elementary School!
