Welcome to Sandy Creek High School!
"Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved." - William Jennings Bryan
There's a question most young adults have been asked for as long as they can remember: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" The answer has probably changed over the years, as new experiences and new role models influence an individual's thinking. Growing up, my answers to that question varied from veterinarian to archeologist to politician before finally settling on a career in education. Changes in direction are to be expected, and yet it is in the high school years that each student must begin to make the choices that will determine his or her destiny: Which classes do I take? Which sports do I commit to? Is college for me? Who do I associate with? How do I want to be living 20 years from now?
Each choice represents a step towards adult life. At Sandy Creek High School, we are committed to helping all students make the choices that will lead them to a happy, healthy, and productive destiny. In pushing students to achieve academic success through advanced STEM courses, CTE options, college credit-bearing courses, and options in the arts and humanities, our teachers are challenging them to develop new ways of thinking and problem-solving skills. Our guidance counselors work to introduce students to career opportunities, as well as to ensure students' mental and emotional well-being. As principal I strive to instill positive character traits in all students, including responsibility and respect for themselves and others, a role I share with coaches and extracurricular advisors. The Sandy Creek team works as a whole to create a safe, academically challenging environment for all students.
As parents, you also play a crucial role on our team. Your support and involvement in your children's education is vital to their success. Please make use of SchoolTool's parent portal to easily monitor your child's grades. You can also contact your student's teachers or counselors via voicemail or email; please refer to the staff directory here. Please also feel free to reach out to me directly with questions or concerns at Emily.email@example.com or (315) 387-3445, ext. 1910.
Looking forward to another successful year at SCCS!
