Principal

     Hello, it is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Emily Felton, the new principal of Sweetwater Elementary School.  My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has shaped me over the past 20 years.  I welcome the opportunity to serve the Sweetwater learning community and look forward to working with a dynamic staff,  dedicated parents and involved community members. Most of all, I look forward to working with our students and continuing the outstanding work at Sweetwater.

     We are officially a NO PLACE FOR HATE SCHOOL!!!  By being a No Place For Hate® school, we are fostering a culture of respect with a bully-free learning environment for all students.  The initiative is designed to rally the entire school around the goal of creating a welcoming community committed to stopping all forms of bias and bullying.  Students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular opportunities that further enhance our instructional programs.  Some of these activities are: Jr. Beta, Student Council, Chorus, Art Club, Math Competition Team, 4-H, Girls and Boys Scouts.

   Most importantly, an excellent education is not possible without the great collaboration with parents. This year, every child will have an agenda book, which will allow teachers and parents another form of communicating.  Parents/Guardians are encourage to sign up for REMIND, which is another form of communication coming directly from me via text or email. Instructions: Text the message @cc7822 to the number 81010.  If you’re having trouble with 81010, try texting @cc7822 to (770) 744-3770. Don’t have a mobile phone? Go to rmd.at/cc7822 on a desktop computer to sign up for email notifications.

    We have a Parent Resource Center (PRC) which has a variety of parent resources, books, family games and other learning materials that students can use at home. For more information about the PRC and other support services for parents, contact our Lead Instructional Teacher, Schontal McClary.  We have activities planned for our parents throughout the year.  A few of these activities are:  monthly parent workshops, donuts for dads, goodies for grandparents and observation days in the classroom. 

Thank you for your continued support in our mutual goals in raising competent, healthy, and successful children.  - Dr. Felton
