Welcome to Sutherland Elementary School, Home of the Scotties! It is a privilege and honor to serve as the principal of this amazing school. I am proud to lead and serve the Sutherland community, parents, students and staff through a wonderful 2022-2023 school year. Sutherland Elementary is a champion among schools and I have so much gratitude for being given the opportunity to serve our community. The vision for Sutherland is to provide every student a world-class educational experience that empowers, inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and productive citizens in the world. Our theme for the school year is, “Reaching every student to be the best, expect the best, get the best.”
Sutherland Elementary School is a caring learning community that seeks to work in partnerships with parents to ensure that all of our students grow to reach their highest potential. Developing and maintaining a strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our students. Together, we can make a positive difference. We encourage parental support and involvement. Parents are invited to join our PTO and Parent Advisory Council. Volunteering and participating at various events throughout the school year will also benefit not only your student, but all of the students at Sutherland.
The staff here take great pride in creating an educational atmosphere where students can learn in a nurturing and innovative environment. We are working diligently to provide learning experiences that are rich in rigor, relevance and relationships. As educators, we have the incredible responsibility and opportunity of not just teaching our children, but also to make a positive impact in their lives. We will strive to teach and provide students with the knowledge, skills and mindset necessary to have a successful future. We will encourage and teach curiosity, problem solving and instill a life-long love of learning. Our team will remain relentless in creating high quality educational experiences.
We are excited and looking forward to the new school year. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all students. We are excited for the opportunity to serve alongside you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment. Let us celebrate successes and strive to achieve new goals!
Your Proud Principal,
