Principal Michelle Jones

As the proud principal of Ginter Park Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to our website. Ginter Park is truly a special place and an excellent school. Why? Because of its’s wonderful students and devoted parents, community partners, and staff.

When we all show up as caring participants within this great community, we create an environment for our children to thrive, as well as build a  strong foundation that our staff, students and families can depend on.

Our school vision, “Cultivating learners into leaders,” is our primary driver. Our mission is anchored in building positive relationships, instilling integrity, and providing meaningful learning and diverse experiences in an engaging, supportive and positive learning environment.  Each and every day, our goal is to keep the main thing the main thing, and that is teaching and learning.   

Our teachers will continue to be intentional about building a strong and safe classroom community so our students can take risks, be creative, and learn deeply. This process takes many forms, from greeting students by name every day at the door, to getting to know each student, their interests, strengths, and needs. Goal setting and targeted instruction is the path that leads our students to academic success, but we know their success is only as strong as their ability to apply a growth mindset, demonstrate integrity and see the value in others.    

We invite all parents, community members and business partners to be a part of this great learning community.

If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hi, please feel free to contact me via at or (804) 780-8193. Go Gators!!!!
