Georgia Parent Survey
School Year 2021-2022

The Georgia Parent Survey was developed to measure parent perceptions of school climate at your child’s school. Your opinion is very important to us. Your survey responses are confidential and will be combined with the survey responses of other parents at your child’s school to identify areas in need of improvement. It should only take ten or fifteen minutes to complete the survey. Thank you for your time and participation.

TItle I meeting


Dear Sugarmill Elementary Families and Communities,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year.  I am so excited to begin another amazing year at Sugarmill Elementary. This will be my sixth year as the principal of Sugarmill Elementary. I love my job and continue to be excited and honored to be a leader in this great school. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We are so fortunate and blessed to have the exciting opportunity to work with your child and to make a difference in his/her life.

We are again entering into a school year with many questions, worries, stresses, and concerns as the pandemic continues. I am confident in our abilities, skills, and commitment to make the best plan for educating our students safely during this time. We are approaching this school year with courage and compassion as we work together as a TEAM to make Sugarmill a place where students are learning, having fun, HAPPY, and SAFE!!!! 

During this time, I ask that you partner with us and please continue to reach out to teachers, staff, and administrators when you need help, have a question, or are concerned. We will do our best to resolve your concerns in a timely manner. In return, I request that you extend kindness and patience as we seek the answers to questions and meet everyone’s needs.
