Welcome to Sutton Elementary
Message from the Principal at Sutton Elementary
Sutton Elementary is partnering this year with the Child Advocacy Center a division of Meridian Health Services to bring Chaucie’s Place’s Smart Steps: A Body Safety Program for Children™ to our Kindergarten, 2nd & 4th grade students. Smart Steps is a child sexual abuse prevention and education program that empowers your child to say “NO!” to any unwanted touches that make them uncomfortable from anyone. We invite you to attend a Smart Steps Parent Night on April 21 at 6:00 pm to learn more about the Smart Stepsprogram. This meeting is open to all parents and/or guardians of Kindergarten, 2nd & 4th grade students. Please be advised that Parent Night is not open to children.
