Principal's Corner

Greetings Tiger Family,

It is with great pride that we are able to come back to a school filled with bright-eyed and bushy-tailed staff and students. This has been a trying time over the last year and a half; however, we're still here. As we ride these waves of change, let's reflect on where we've been, and work towards a brighter future for our students, staff, and community. This can be accomplished with the aid of my new assistant principal, Mrs. Karin D. Reavis, the Sussex Central Elementary School Team, community stakeholders, and you! Together, our mission is to provide a child-centered environment that strives for excellence, promotes creativity, embraces diversity, and encourages lifelong learning for a changing world. Thank you, Tiger family, and welcome to the 2021-2022 academic school year!
