Principal’s Message

Maybeury Families, 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. As we move together into this school year, the faculty and staff at Maybeury Elementary School join me in saying we’re happy to have each of you as part of the Maybeury learning community. We look forward to the engaging learning opportunities that your child will experience both inside and outside of the classroom this year. Our faculty and staff is dedicated to providing students a nurturing school environment, building positive relationships, focusing on the individual growth of each child, and establishing high expectations for learning. 

Maybeury is proud to be one of Henrico County’s most diverse elementary schools representing over 30 countries and languages. We are a fully accredited 21st century learning environment. In addition, our outdoor Learning Garden contains raised beds, a fully functioning greenhouse, and a physical fitness shed. 

This year, our school theme will  be “Growth and Gratitude.” Our theme focuses on and commits to providing a safe, nurturing, inclusive, and innovative environment to our diverse community of learners to ensure success for each student. We will continue to support the foundation of social and emotional development of our future community leaders as they start the journey to becoming life ready. Our goal is for students to know that we care about them and we are committed to helping them grow not only academically, but socially and emotionally. 

Our teachers will continue to facilitate lessons that challenge students to imagine, create, assess, and apply their knowledge to real-life scenarios. Using the Four Pillars of Deeper Learning of the Henrico Learner Profile: “Learning is Anytime, Anywhere,” “Learning is Authentic & Connected,” “Learning is Student-owned,” and “Learning is Community Supported,” our students experience learning that supports growth in the Six C’s: Communication, Collaboration, Global Citizen, Quality Character, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. It is our hope that their experiences at maybeury will prepare them for the many adventures awaiting them beyond elementary school and ultimately make them #LifeReady!  


If at any time I can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. It is my goal to make our building inviting for families throughout the school year.
