Principal's Welcome Message

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Sutter Creek Elementary School website.  We take pride in the high quality education we provide for each of our students, and in the positive school climate present on our two campuses.  I am honored to be serving as the Principal of such a remarkable school consisting of outstanding students, expert staff, supportive parents, and involved community members.

When you visit our campuses, I am sure you will agree that a sense of caring and high expectations is evident.  Our staff is dedicated to working together, and their commitment to student success is what sets us apart from others.  On this website, you will find current information about our school, schedules, staff, classrooms, and exciting events.

Our parents and community are an integral part of our school’s success.  Parents can be found in countless classrooms, engaged in meaningful work.  We encourage you to get involved in any way possible.  Our School Site Council (SSC), Parent Teacher Organization (SCEPTOR), or volunteering in your child’s classroom are all opportunities for rewarding involvement.

If you would like more information regarding our school and/ or program offerings, please don’t hesitate to contact me through email at ssnider@amadorcoe.k12.ca.us or by phone at 257-7200.

I would like to sincerely thank you for all you do to support our school, and look forward to working with all of you throughout the course of the school year. Only together can we make a difference in the lives of all children.

 
Sincerely,

Sean Snider

Volunteer Applications

We love parent volunteers at Sutter Creek Elementary!  Please remember that all parents need to complete a new volunteer form each school year.  The fingerprinting only needs to be done once, and TB verification is good for four years, but a new form needs to be completed each year.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please print and complete the volunteer application and bring it to either school office along with your driver's license and proof of current TB test clearance.  Thank you!

SCEPTOR (PTA)

Did you know that SCEPTOR stands for Sutter Creek Parent Teacher Organization?  Come join this dynamic group of parents as they discuss ways to further support the students and teachers of Sutter Creek Elementary School .  They meet the third Tuesday of each month at 4:00 in the Upper Campus library.  You can also check out their latest news and events at facebook.com/sceptorsuttercreek or click here for their November Newsletter.

New Positive Behavior Incentive Program:

Sutter Creek Elementary, along with schools all across the Country are implementing “P.B.I.S.” or Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports.  Research has shown that encouraging positive behavior by rewarding it rather than threatening consequences for negative behavior produces better results.  All school staff met last year to identify the expected behaviors for each different area of the school (recess, office, library, hallways, etc).  Each day, teachers have been teaching the expected behaviors for one of these areas to the students.  When a student is seen by any staff member following an expected behavior, they are issued a “Pawsitive.”  All Pawsitives are put into a daily drawing and one student at each campus wins a prize.  This student’s picture is then taken and posted on a bulletin board with their Pawsitive.  Students are enjoying the excitement this has created, and staff are noticing good overall behavior.  Be sure to check out the “Pawsitive Winner” bulletin boards at each campus!  To check out the behavioral expectations for each campus, click here: Sutter Creek Primary Positive Behavioral Expectations , Sutter Creek Upper Campus Positive Behavioral Expectations.
