Terri Slattery, Principal

Dear Parents,

Welcome! New beginnings are always filled with hope and promise. It is with great pride and excitement that I introduce myself as the newly appointed Principal of Sugarmill Elementary for the 2016-2017 school years. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of success.  Along with teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Sugarmill by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. 

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than thirty years. During that time, I have had many experiences in a variety of fields.  I have taught in grades: Pre-K, kindergarten, first, and third grade.  I also served as an Instructional Lead Teacher at David L. Rainer, Instructional Technology Coach for Camden County School Systems through the DoDEA grant, and a Teaching Learning Specialist at Sugarmill Elementary.

Our mission is to ensure educational excellence in a safe and nurturing learning environment where all Sugarmill Elementary School students are empowered to reach their goals and become productive citizens. We are dedicated to doing what it takes to place our student’s future educational success at the cornerstone of all school based decisions. We pride ourselves in maintaining high expectations for student achievement while focusing on the individual needs of each student. 

The home-school communication is a key factor to building success at school.  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 school calendars, enrollment information, lunch menus, bus routes, contact information for all staff and information on a variety of resources and programs available to students and families. 

 Parental involvement is crucial to our success and there are many ways that parents can become involved.  We invite all parents to join the PTO, attend school conferences/functions, and volunteer in the school.

I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you for entrusting us with your precious children who make every day at SES a wonderful place to be.  We warmly welcome you to school year of excellence in learning.
