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.

Student-Parent Handbook:

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.

Sutton’s Discipline 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.

Staff changes:

Sutton has a few changes in staff members this year:  Mrs. Oetting (2nd Grade), Mrs. Boone (4th Grade), Mrs. Gardner (5th Grade), and Mrs. Christy (Speech).  Other Sutton teachers have changed grade levels and some have moved to different classrooms.

All visitors must sign in at the office upon entering the school building and please remember to sign out in the office when leaving.  All outside doors will be locked at 8:30 a.m.  Please use the security monitor on the brick wall (dark gray panel that is to the right of the front doors).  Please do not proceed to any classroom without office notification and signing in.  Our instructional time is very important and cannot be randomly interrupted.  The security of your children is of the utmost urgency.  PLEASE COOPERATE WITH THESE GUIDELINES—IT IS TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD!!

Driveway procedures:

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.
