Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,

Hello and Welcome! The Sullivans Elementary School is a great place to learn and grow. We welcome you to another exciting school year at The Sullivans, and hope that you will take full advantage of all the varied learning opportunities and activities available to you here.

To that end, a dedicated and highly trained and motivated staff has been assembled. They love kids, love to teach and regularly devote time well beyond what is commonly termed the official duty day to ensure a quality education for your child. You often find teachers still at work late into the afternoon and sometimes long into the evening; many often work on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Teachers are only one part of the educational team.

If we wish to maximize academic growth and achievement, parents will need to be deeply involved. You are encouraged to participate in the education of your child, whether it is coming to school to volunteer, conferencing with teachers whenever there is a concern, helping your child with his/her homework, or reading to your child. There are many, many ways that you can actively and productively participate in your child’s education. You are encouraged to become familiar with all of our school programs and the academic curriculum.

We hold School-Home-Community Partnership in high regard and encourage as well as invite you to partner with us! Volunteer opportunities are continually available through the PTO, the School Advisory Committee (SAC), Parent Center, and each classroom teacher. The Sullivans, while a big school, has a reputation as an excellent school with many interesting and challenging programs and classrooms with a high standard of quality. Let’s work together to make this the best school experience for your child.
