Today's Choice for Tomorrow's Future


Debbie Hartog-Assitant Principal

Greetings Triangle Manatee Families and Friends!

As the Assistant Principal of Triangle Elementary School, I want to welcome you to our school. This will be my fourth year as Triangle Manatees Assistant Principal, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to engage in the educational process together with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and supportive parents for another year.  I am a lifelong educator who brings a strong commitment to students and families as well as a love of learning and problem solving.

It takes a village! Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education has a great benefit on the child.  The benefits are higher academic achievement, better attendance, and a positive influence on behavior and attitudes. The elementary years are critical times of development for students, so I urge you to take part as much as possible in our school activities.  We have many activities focused on our families to learn more about your child’s educational opportunities, as well as, fun and exciting nights such as STEAM, Science and Literacy Fairs, and the Festival of the Arts! We also would like to invite you to participate in our School Advisory Council (SAC) and the Association of Parents and Teachers (APT).  I look forward to working with all of you to ensure the success of your student.

Please know that my door is always open and I am available to meet with you in person or talk to you over the telephone to discuss any concerns you may have. As an instructional leader of Triangle, I strive to ensure that your child has the opportunity to learn, achieve, and succeed!  I look forward to a great year and to meeting all our new children and their families.

Together in Education,

Debbie Hartog
