Principal Message

My name is Elliott Cruzata and it is with great excitement to introduce myself as your new Principal of Toland Way Elementary School.  I am honored to lead such an amazing school and community.  I feel very fortunate to be part of this school to support the students, teachers, and families.    


Over the past 23 years, I have worked as a teacher, English Language Coordinator, Categorical Program Advisor, Title III Coach, Assistant Principal, and Principal but the most important job has been that of a child advocate.  I will work with the staff to continue to provide the rigorous instruction that each teacher delivers to the children in our school community.  I will make it a point to make myself accessible to all stakeholders, including parents, faculty, staff, and students. 


Once again, I am grateful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to Toland Way ES.  I am eager to meet each and every student and I will do my part in “acknowledging the strengths and uniqueness of each student, while promoting academic and personal excellence” (Toland Way Vision). 


I look forward to getting to know the students, staff, and families that make up this wonderful school community.  Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].
