Welcome To The Sewell-Anderson Elementary School

Dear Sewell-Anderson and Tracy Kindergarten Families,

I hope you have enjoyed your summer. I am very excited to begin another school year at the Sewell-Anderson Elementary School. I welcome and value our families’ positive energy and dedication to excellence in education and I look forward to working with you and your children this school year.

Our incredible staff is already planning and preparing for your children. Sewell-Anderson teachers participated in Keys to Literacy professional development. Teachers are planning lessons, developing concept maps, and anchor charts to promote comprehension and higher order thinking skills. We will continue with this work throughout the school year to deliver powerful lessons to your children.

The PTO is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We work together to provide our students with a caring community with common goals of nurturing caring, responsible students and promoting rigorous learning.

I am looking forward to meeting all the children and families at Sewell Anderson. I believe teamwork and high expectations move a school forward and provide a place where children thrive and learn. I am very excited about this opportunity to serve your community.

Sue Garrity

About School Councils
A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
