Principal's Corner

This time of the year tends to be one in which we can reflect on all that we should be thankful for. Although we have experienced some not so good, we still have some blessings in our lives. This is certainly the case for me, and one of the biggest blessings I have received this year is the opportunity to serve our Sussex Central Elementary School community as principal. Thank you for your support, your openness to change, and your trust that we are working to ensure a prosperous future for our school. I am also blessed to have an amazing faculty and staff that is supportive of my leadership along with my assistant principal.


During the winter break, I encourage you to continue reflecting on your blessings and practice safety protocols. Please enjoy the winter break with your family and friends and I look forward to seeing you bright and early on Monday, January 3, 2022.
