  • Welcome to Camden Schools : Sugarmill Elementary
    Happy Summer! 
    I hope this time of year finds you looking forward to many wonderful times with family and friends. Summer activities provide valuable experiences in which children can learn about themselves and the world around them. Your child’s summer can be enriched through reading and writing.  I hope you will find time in your child’s day to include a time set aside for reading and writing activities.  Studies show that children who read over the summer achieve greater scores on reading assessments in the fall than those who read only one or no books at all. 
     
    I would like to thank you now for supporting your children this year, and thank you in advance for continuing to support and encourage learning during the summer. Your efforts are greatly appreciated! 
     
    The following information will assist you in preparing for returning in the fall. Registration for all new students is available at this time by going to the website at http://www.camden.k12.ga.us . Official documents can be scanned from home or if needed be brought by the school and scanned into the system beginning July 25th.  On July 10th you will receive an email with information on registering returning students.  Completing the process outlined in the email is mandatory in order to update and check  that accurate and current information is in our data system. Having the correct information on our students is very important for security purposes as well as emergency situations. 
     
    There will be someone in the office at SES on July 25th /9:00-2:00 to assist you with registration and questions.
     

    Have a summer full of good times and fun memories.  I will see you soon!

    Camden Leads State in Top Title I Reward Schools 

    The recently released Georgia Department of Education 2016-2017 list of Title I Reward Schools named seven Camden County Schools as either Title I Highest Performing Schools or High Progress Title I Schools. The Camden County School District earned more awards for Title I Highest Performing Schools than any other district in the state of Georgia. Of the eighty-two schools in the state to earn the title of Highest Performing School, five of the schools were from Camden County.

    Crooked River Elementary School earned the title of Highest Performing School for the fifth year in a row and Matilda Harris Elementary School earned the title for the third consecutive year. Woodbine Elementary, David L. Rainer Elementary and Sugarmill Elementary were also designated by the Georgia Department of Education as Highest Performing Schools. St. Marys Middle School and Mary Lee Clark Elementary earned the honor of being named Title I High Progress Schools. 

    In response to the accomplishments of these schools, Dr. Will Hardin, Superintendent of Schools remarked, “This achievement is the epitome of continuous improvement. We are extremely proud of our school leadership and of the work of our teachers to attain this distinction.”

    A Highest Performing School is among the five percent of the state’s Title I schools with the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments.
    A High Progress School is among the ten percent of the state’s Title I schools making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as either of these designations if it has been identified as a Priority, Focus, or Alert School.

    Schools with a percentage of students eligible for free or reduced lunch at or above 40% are eligible for Title I schoolwide services and this honor.  All twelve of Camden County Schools are successful, schoolwide Title I schools.

  • Because of You

    "Because of You" is a new feature on our Camden County Schools Facebook page and website. We will share ways that parents and community members are dedicating their time and talents to support our students and schools.

    The 5th Grade Leadership Academy at SES had the honor of welcoming Mr. Tobey, a Vietnam War veteran and Purple Heart recipient. Mr. Tobey gave life to our curriculum and studies on the Vietnam War. The kids were fascinated and asked thought provoking questions. The proudest moment was when students raised their hands as if to ask a question and instead they said, 'Thank you for your service.' As Mrs. Hutchinson, fifth grade teacher, said "Today was more than just a nice review before our social studies EOG next week. It was about the students realizing the sacrifices that are made for the freedoms we cherish."
