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.
