Principal's Message

  • Jessley HathawayDear Families of 74th Street Elementary School,

    On behalf of 74th Street Elementary School, it is indeed my pleasure to welcome you to a new and exciting school year.  For those of you whose children have attended our school in the past, we are so glad you are choosing to return.  For those of you whose children are just entering 74th Street, we are pleased that you are joining our Jaguar Family.

    Let me also take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Mr. Jessley Hathaway and I am honored to serve as your principal.  I live in Pinellas County and have worked for the school board the past 24 years.  I have served as a teacher, math/science coach, assistant principal, and principal.  I have had the pleasure of connecting with many of our returning families this summer while also meeting several of our new families both in person and online.  I look forward to meeting everyone else very soon.

    74th Street Elementary is a school committed to excellence.  Academic achievement, character development, commitment to safety, and a sense of belonging and community are our highest priorities.  Please be assured of my commitment to honor our accomplishments and contribute to even greater success in the future.

    Again, I want to welcome all of you to what we know will be the best school year yet.  Please do not hesitate to stop by the office, give us a call or reach out virtually and let us know if we can assist you in any way.  Best wishes to you and your family, and “Go Jaguars”.
