Principal's Message

Dear Shady Grove Families,


Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! It is both an honor and privilege to serve as the principal at Shady Grove Elementary this year. 


I have spent this last year getting to know the students, parents and staff at SGE.  The overwhelming impression I have had is that we are a team and a family at Shady Grove Elementary.  2017-18 was a positive year on our campus, one full of growth!  I believe that we can not only keep this momentum going this school year, but that we can and will exceed it! I know this because of the amazing team of teachers and staff who go above and beyond in so many ways to support the students and families that we serve.


We have some exciting new additions this year, including our new Assistant Principal, Sonya Smith, our new full time SRO officer, Alex Fidler, and we are also starting up our new SGE PTO this year!  We will continue to host Watchdog Dads, and are always looking for more volunteers to support our students in getting their "steps" in with the American Reading Company.  Our students showed great gains this last year in their reading progress, and your help played a key role.


I look forward to continuing to build relationships with each of you next year as we partner together to see our students succeed.


Go Bulldogs!
