Home of the Eagles!

Dear Sugarmill Elementary Families and Communities,
As principal of Sugarmill Elementary, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year. We hope you had an excellent and relaxing summer. We are excited to have students back in the classrooms and hallways filling them with laughter, energy, and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission daily to ensure that every child and parent feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our Sugarmill family.   We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a great year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous learning in our classrooms.  
I am honored to serve as the principal of Sugarmill Elementary School.  It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academics and social growth.  
Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students with many opportunities. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize every opportunity to create success.
We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want and need you.  We value your involvement and support in your child’s education!  Your active participation is key to the success of the students at Sugarmill Elementary.
During the 2018-19 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in education.  We will remain steadfast to our mission statement.

Our school community has adopted the following mission, vision and beliefs statements to guide us as we work with each other to educate our students.

Sugarmill Mission Statement:

We highly value the home/school communication here at SES. This website will serve as a general guide to all parents and students at Sugarmill Elementary. I believe you will find it a valuable resource. You will find general information about the school including: calendars, enrollment information, lunch menus, bus routes, contact inform for all staff and information on a variety of resources and programs available to students and families. Your involvement and interest is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.

Important Announcement
Daily Dismissal of Elementary Students
Consistency is crucial for a smooth dismissal of students from the school building each day.  In the event of an emergency change in student transportation, the request must be made in writing and must be received by school office personnel by no later than 2:45 p.m.
Dismissal times for all students are:
3:15 p.m.             Walkers and Car Riders
3:30 p.m.             Bus Riders
These dismissal times are a slight change from last year---PLEASE Be Patient with us until we establish this new routine.  Adjustments to times may be required. 
Important Reminders 
Walkers:         Dismiss at 3:15.  A teacher will walk them to the end of the sidewalk (at bus port) to meet parents.
Car Riders:     Remain in your car. Please have car tag displayed in the car on the right hand side.
        Follow the designated route.  Do not cut off other cars in the line.
         Pull up or move forward as directed or as the line moves.
         Avoid motioning to your child to come to your car.

Bus Riders:     Remind students to use normal speaking voices while on the bus, to remain seated at all times, and to keep hands and feet to themselves at all times.  Riders may be suspended or permanently removed from the bus if inappropriate behaviors occur.
