• The Principal's Message

  • It is an honor to serve the Sycamore family as Principal for the 23-24 school year.  Sycamore Elementary is a school rooted in community and family.  Many of our staff members have served at Sycamore for many years.  Many of our current students are children of Sycamore staff.
    At Sycamore Elementary, our mission is to achieve our personal best in our school, community and world by setting goals, doing our job, and making every minute count. This year our staff theme is “20 Years- Sycamore Strong!”  We are excited to celebrate 20 years of excellence at Sycamore. We believe in coming together as a community to support students’ academic and social well-being. We will focus on five critical areas as we strive to help each and every student reach their full potential.  

    1. Staff and Student Well being - We’ll add opportunities during the instructional day to include additional enrichment opportunities and social emotional learning (SEL).  Students will learn about the impact of our standards in our community through strategic partnerships with the City of Sugar Hill and Lanier Cluster. 

    2. Multi-Tiered System of Supports - We will utilize data to make informed instructional decisions that allow us to provide tiered supports based on student needs.

    3. Opportunity and Access - We’ll host our annual Career Day and increase the number of careers represented.  We’ll increase enrichment opportunities during Longhorn Learning Time by providing additional offerings through Clubs for All.

    4. Results Based Evaluation System - We’ll implement quarterly data talks to review student progress.  We’ll continue to implement and leverage the iReady universal screener to help make informed instructional decisions.  

    5. World-class communications and engagement- We’ll continue to implement parent workshops both in the evening and during the day.  We’ll implement a new communication platform called Parent Square to improve and streamline our communication channels. 

    As principal of Sycamore Elementary, I’m excited to help students LEARN what it takes to be productive and successful members of society, LEAD others with compassion and empathy, and SUCCEED in whatever future endeavors they choose to pursue.

    Thank you for choosing Sycamore Elementary.  We are proud to be a part of the Lanier Cluster and Sugar Hill, Georgia!
