are excited to announce that we are going to allow parents to have the
opportunity to paint the school spirit rock that is located in front of
the school. Parents
will be able to paint the rock for birthday announcements.
If you are
interested in painting the rock, you must sign up for it on the calendar
that will be located in the front office.
Each person that signs up
will be able to keep their message up for 24 hours.
Birthday messages can be painted the day before after school hours
(3:30). For example, if my son's birthday is on March 27th then I can
paint the rock after school hours (3:30) on the 26th. My birthday
message will stay up all day on the 27th. If someone
wants to paint it for the 28th then they have to wait until afterschool
on the 27th.
Remember, you must sign up in the front office to reserve
the day you want to paint the rock.
We are excited to begin this new
tradition at SCES!

One way we are improving security at SCES and around the district is implementing a sex offender scan for all volunteers and visitors that enter our school. If you plan to volunteer or visit you will need to provide a license or state ID as you enter the front office.
The system is new and takes some time to get accustomed to, so please arrive a few minutes early
to accommodate for the extra time this will take. We appreciate your support and patience with this new security system. This is just another way our district is putting "Children First."

Congratulations Lipi Pratt!
2013 District Teacher of the Year
We are proud to have her as a Sugar Creek Shark!
We would like to thank Sisk Memorial Baptist Church, First Baptist of Fort Mill, York County Sheriff's Dept., Compact Power Equipment Rental, Compact Power Equipment Service, and Lake Wylie Lutheran Church for providing support as we prepared for this school year. Whether is was by donating school supplies, helping teachers in their classrooms, or providing helpers to deliver materials to classrooms, your generosity means more to us than we can say.
The No Place for Hate® Promise
- I promise to do my best to treat everyone fairly.
- I promise to do my best to be kind to everyone —even if they are not like me.
- If I see someone being hurt or bullied, I will tell a teacher.
- Everyone should be able to feel safe and happy in school.
- I want our school to be No Place for Hate®.
We have a system in place in the Fort Mill School District called Parent Portal. At Sugar Creek Elementary, Parent Portal gives parents of students in Grades 3-5 an opportunity to view attendance, grades, and assignments for their child.
Reminder: Car Line Name Tags and Walker/Biker Waiver
Make sure you pick up a NEW name tag for car line for the 2013-2014 school year. You can pick one up at Meet the Teacher or in the front office. These tags should be displayed in the front windshield with student names written BIG, bold
, and in print. You may not use these signs to pick up students from the door, please wait in line. For safety reasons, you may not pick students up in car line without a name tag. If you do not have a tag, you must park to get a tag from the front office and then return to the car rider line. Thanks for your help in making sure afternoon car line runs smoothly.
If your child plans on walking or biking to/from school, please turn in a waiver to the front office so your child can receive a walker tag for his/her bookbag. These waivers are available at Meet the Teacher, in the front office, or you may print one from under Parent Resources
