Welcome to USA Schools!

        Welcome to USA Elementary School



Dear USA Families and Community,

Please allow me to introduce myself to the community of USA Elementary, a school that is consistently known as a leader in elementary education for not just Huron and Tuscola county, but the state of Michigan. My name is David Farley and I feel very fortunate to have been selected as your principal.

I am still in the process of meeting staff members, family members and the community members at large. Everyone I have had the opportunity to meet has been warm in their welcome and I thank you for that. We have a lot of great things happening at USA Elementary and I look to work with everyone to make us even greater. I am a firm believer in having high expectations for all and that all students can succeed and our school will reflect that.


A little about me; My wife Rachel and I have a 2.5 year old son named Max. We are in the process of moving from Frankenmuth to Bay City, allowing our home to be between her job in Saginaw and mine at USA Elementary. I grew up on the other end of M25 in Lexington and my wife is from Caro. I am excited to be working in an area similar to where I grew up, with many similar dynamics including a multi town school like Croswell-Lexington schools where I attended. Prior to joining USA Elementary, I have had a wide range of experience in K-12 education. I began my career at Buena Vista High School, was a 3rd to 5th grade Dean of Instruction at Burton Glen Charter Academy and spent the last 3 years as Principal and Curriculum Director of Richfield Early Learning Center. I am currently a member of the Gerstacker Fellowship which allowed me to take an international experience visiting schools in Japan this past summer and I am excited to find ways to use some of their successes here in our school.

I hope to have the opportunity to meet all of my school community over the summer or during the school year. If you have any questions or would like to talk, please contact me at farleyd@think-usa.org, find me on Facebook (Principal Farley) or follow USA Elementary on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @lilpatriotsk5

Thank you and I look forward to a great school year and beyond! Go Patriots!
