Welcome to Sutton Elementary
Message from the Principal
I would like to welcome students, staff, parents, and visitors to the Sutton Elementary website. Sutton Elementary is an outstanding school educating around 365 students in grades K-5. Sutton follows the 8 step process for learning and received a school letter grade of "B" for the 2013-2014 school year. Sutton is a Title I school with a diverse school population. We have incredible partnerships with the community, which include Open Door, United Way, Second Harvest Food Bank, Glad Tidings, Ball State University and the Muncie Public Library. If we can assist you in any way at Sutton, please do not hesitate to call the office at 765-747-5431.
Every student will receive a student handbook. The handbook contains local school policies
and disciplinary procedures. Parents need
to sign the form stating that you have received the handbook.
and M.O.P. Rules:
We will continue our school wide reward/discipline action
plan called M.O.P. We are excited about
our M.O.P. rules! The M.O.P. rules are
about respecting Me, Others and Property
and it includes the 4 A’s –Admit,
Apologize, Accept, and Amends to
help solve the problem.
Sutton has a few changes in staff members this year: Mrs. Oetting (2nd Grade), Mrs. Boone

AFTER SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION – The first day of school teachers will record the method in which each student will go home. Unless a note is received by the teacher, students will be expected to go home by this method each day. If a student’s way home must vary from his/her normal routine, a note must be sent to the teacher. Please do not telephone the school with alternate arrangements. For the safety of our new and returning students, please follow this procedure.
My door is always open. If you have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by phone at 765-747-5431 or you may stop by the office to schedule an appointment.
