Principal's Message


          My name is Michelle Gritz
                and I am proud to be 
            Principal at Sugar Creek!

I am so blessed to begin my 23rd 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 vision of Children First…Every Day.

A successful education is a joint effort between the school and the home which is why family and community are the fundamentals of Sugar Creek. 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 is always a priority for us at Sugar Creek Elementary. Our school’s focus will continue towards being “Shark Strong” and working towards the character values of showing respect, having integrity and being kind. When our students, staff and community work on displaying these values, then our foundation of being a No Place for Hate school strengthens.

Our staff works hard on implementing South Carolina College and Career Ready standards based instruction and innovative practices, as well, as integrating technology into their lessons. Our staff theme this year is to collaborate to strengthen our Tier 1 instruction in the classroom and to meet students where they are as learners through small group instruction. 

I look forward to continuing my educational journey at Sugar Creek and to serving our students, staff and families. We are SHARK STRONG!

Together in Excellence,
Michelle Gritz, Principal
