Sandy Creek Central School District
AnnouncementsMay 14, 2019
Dear Sandy Creek School District Community,
Although my monthly newsletters, and Sandy Creek Twitter account give a brief snapshot of all the wonderful events and activities going on at Sandy Creek Middle School, I just wanted to take a minute to truly thank everyone in this community for supporting me the past 5 months as middle school principal. Growing up and attending Onondaga Central, a similar small community just like this one, I thought that it was the best kept secret, but I was proven wrong. Sandy Creek is as good as it comes! I think it’s safe to say I have officially been adopted as a “Creeker.”
I’m also so proud to work for a faculty that dedicates themselves day in and day out to the betterment of the students and the school as a whole. After the school day is over our staff continues to work with our kids in the classroom, or at any of the variety of after school activities. I have never been around a more dedicated staff. As we are winding down our assessment season, it is also time to recognize our students and celebrate their academic and personal goals. As hard as our staff works our students work just as hard. While we may look to academics and assessments to measure student success, it is also important to look at the student as a whole. Our “Leader in Me” initiative at the Middle School has enforced the “7 Habits” and our students have really internalized these attributes in all aspects of their daily life. We are going to have an end of the year celebration on the last day of school to honor all the hard work our students and staff put in to making this a successful year. We’re looking to make this an annual event! Stay tuned to my newsletter and Twitter for pictures.
Just a couple of reminders. Our last school day for 7th and 8th graders will be June 17th. Our 6th grade students will still be in session until June 25th. There will be half days on June 21st, 24th and 25th for our 6th graders. As we enter into the end of the school year, there are many activities and events planned for our students.
