Shark FIN Bulletin
It's hard to believe that we have been in school for 9 weeks already! Time flies when you are having fun! It's been so wonderful having our students back in school and learning. Everyone is doing such a great job following our safety protocols and our new school procedures. We have had a smooth opening and continue to have high hopes that we can continue learning in a safe environment. Please be sure to read each section carefully so that you will be aware and familiar with the happenings at SCES.
Teaming together towards excellence,
Mrs. Michelle Gritz- Principal
Vision and Mission
Vision: At SCES our vision is putting children first, striving for excellence, building positive relationships.
Mission: Collaboratively, our school community is committed to excellence, by putting children first, building caring relationships, and valuing diversity.
Our students and staff work daily on showing SHARK STRONG behavior. Shark Strong means that our students are being kind, showing respect and having integrity. These are the three main character traits we continue to teach and reinforce at Sugar Creek Elementary. Our Kindergarteners will jump right in and learn what being Shark Strong is all about!

“TOUCHLESS” CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT
For the safety and security of our students, parents are still required to accompany a student into/out of the building for tardy arrivals, returning from appointments or early dismissals. We now are able to offer “touchless” check-in and check-out by allowing you to use your phone to scan our QR code in the office.
RECYCLE YOUR PLASTIC BAGS to help SCES win great TREX products…park benches, flower boxes, etc!
Please remember to bring your plastic bags to SCES for recycle! When you donate your unwanted plastic bags and wrap, not only are you helping to keep thousands of pounds of waste out of landfills, you're also helping to create beautiful and environmentally responsible outdoor products. Donation bins can be found throughout the school so send them in.
