Greetings Sawgrass Bay Families,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year here at Sawgrass Bay Elementary School!  We are thrilled about what the year has to offer and exceptionally proud that you have entrusted us to educate and care for your child.  We firmly believe that all children deserve a high quality education where they will be provided individual opportunities to excel.  Through standards-based differentiated instruction and embracing the Leader in Me journey as our way of work, our students will continue to reach new levels of achievement. 
Educating a child to reach his/her potential requires a committed team that is willing to collaborate, grow, and reach new levels of success themselves.  We, here at Sawgrass Bay, are exactly that.  We are constant learners who are always reaching for new ways to engage the students and “Build Leaders for Life, One Student at a Time.”  Please know that our commitment is and always will be to the students we serve each and every day. 
Thank you for entrusting and partnering with us in the education of your child!  It is because of involved community members and parents that Sawgrass Bay is able to provide a rich learning experience for our students!  I am looking forward to an exciting and productive year.  It is a true blessing to be the instructional leader of such a wonderful school.
As the Principal of Sawgrass Bay Elementary, my door is always open.  Please feel free to stop in, make an appointment, or call to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet for our students.
