Dear SGE Families,


I am especially proud and pleased to warmly welcome you back, or, if you are new this year,  welcome you to our Sheridan Green Elementary family.  As we begin a year unlike any year we have  known, I can assure you all  that you are an essential part of an exceptional school community that is full of kind and caring individuals. Knowing that this is going to be an especially challenging, yet nonetheless exciting year to learn and grow together, an important word in our Mission statement is inclusive.I want each of you to understand how important you are to the safety and well-being of not only your own, but all of the children in our school community.


Another reason for my confidence is that we have added a new motto, Be Prepared, and we are!  At SGE you will find dedicated professionals committed to working together and with families to ensure every child grows socially, emotionally and academically. Ours is a very special staff, who since March and throughout the summer have put in countless unpaid hours to refine their knowledge and skills and do everything in their power to get ready for a strong opening and whatever the year brings.  Join us, keeping in mind that being prepared means being prepared for change.  It is unavoidable, but no match for what we will be able to do together.


A strength that will continue to carry us is everyone, students and adults alike, will continue to be expected to know and adhere to our school wide expectation of following Gator 4 (RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, SAFE AND KIND) whether onsite or at home.  These guidelines will help us help each other do our best, for the children.


Although formats and schedules are likely to shift, Sheridan Green staff members will continue to work tirelessly to enhance and improve the quality of education that we provide our students. Each one of us at SGE is committed to helping your child be successful and reach his/her potential! The success of our students is achieved when every player (student, teacher, and parent) is an active member of the learning team. When everyone on the team does his/her best, everyone's a winner!  We are so happy to have you on our team and ask you to help us keep every line of communication as open and transparent as possible.  Please reach out to us in whatever way(s) work best for you.  Join our video calls, follow our phone and online message, and let us know how we’re doing.  Sometimes the simplest way to reach me is by phone, so use my cell phone number as needed.


I look forward to a productive and exciting year of learning with all members of the SGE school community!  We couldn’t do it without you, and despite the challenges, I remain  confident in our mission:  Sheridan Green Elementary- An inclusive community nurturing individualized growth and success.
