WELCOME TO SUGAR CREEK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!
The mission of Sugar Creek Elementary School is to put children first by positively supporting diversity within a safe learning community while in pursuit of excellence through an engaging curriculum and a love of learning.

From the Principal

Welcome to Sugar Creek Elementary! My name is Michelle Gritz and I am proud to be Principal at Sugar Creek.  This is my 16th year of being an educator in the Fort Mill School District. Our vision at Sugar Creek is putting children first, striving for excellence and building positive relationships. The vision of our school stems from our school district’s mission.  Family and community are the foundation of Sugar Creek.  I truly believe that a successful education is a joint effort between the school and the home. Communicating effectively with parents and the community is an important way to keep families informed of class activities, PTO and school events. Bringing families into the school will remain a priority for us at Sugar Creek Elementary. Our school’s focus this year will be on Teaming Together Towards Excellence. Our staff will be working hard on implementing standards based instruction and innovative practices, as well,  as integrating technology into their lessons.   We are striving to prepare all students to be 21st century thinkers and problem solvers. I look forward to continuing my educational journey at Sugar Creek and to serving our students, staff and families. I am privileged to be the mother of three boys- Braden (3rd grade), Nicholas (1st grade), and Gabriel (4 years old) and the wife of Chris Gritz.
