    Anona Elementary School was originally established in the 1800's. The first recorded history of Anona is in 1874. While the school building itself has been moved from its original location, we still strive to maintain that small community atmosphere,while increasing our use of technology offers your child the best of both worlds. Our active PTA and SAC members are a huge support to our "Anona Family" Today, we have a flourishing school community with more than 450 students in VPK through Fifth Grade.

Meet the Principal

Mrs. Ann Welsh



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ann Welsh

Welcome to Anona Elementary!

 It is with a great deal of pride that I introduce myself as the Principal of this wonderful and historic school. My name is Ann Welsh and I have been an educator for 15 + years. Prior to my current position as Principal at Anona, I was Assistant Principal at Oldsmar Elementary. I have experience as a mathematics/science staff developer, an RtI coach and as elementary teacher.

With a committed teaching staff, involved families and community partners, it is truly my belief that every student here at Anona can reach their potential. The foundational years of elementary school are important to the future success of our young students. Making certain that our students believe in themselves, have the teachers and resources to meet their learning needs while also building and maintaining strong and positive partnerships between the school, its community and the Anona families, I recognize that Anona Elementary will continue to flourish and grow now and in the future.

I am proud and thrilled to serve as your Principal. Please stop by the school at any time to share your thoughts and ideas of how we can continue to improve and to find out about how you can become more involved on our school community.
