Greetings New and Returning Sutherland Families!
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! My name is JaVonda Tucker and this starts my second year as the proud principal of Sutherland Elementary School. I am looking forward to a year filled with opportunity and excitement for all members of our Sutherland community. This year we will continue to bring the community together and resume our wonderful school events.
Our vision is to provide every student a world class educational experience that empowers, inspires and motivates them to become lifelong learners and productive citizens. In order to reach our vision, we have set school-wide goals in reaching the needs of all students. This year’s theme is, “Ready, Set, Grow!” Sutherland is a wonderful place for students to learn, excel and grow. We are proud of our school and have high expectations for each and every student.
There has been a lot of planning and preparation in order to get ready for this school year. The amazing staff at Sutherland Elementary is committed to providing an excellent academic and nurturing environment for all students. We look forward to continuing our collaboration of providing them with an effective and engaging educational experience. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. Please also consider connecting with our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for the students, teachers and parents.
You are invited to attend our Open House on Thursday, August 17, 2023. All students and families are welcome to come between 3PM-6PM. Families will have the opportunity to tour the building, meet their teacher, get important paperwork and see their friends.
Please feel free to contact me via email or call the main office to make an appointment to speak with me to discuss any ideas you feel will make this the best year yet! I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the school year as we remain committed to making our school a fantastic place for students to learn and grow.
JaVonda Tucker, Principal
