    Sawgrass Families,

     We are very much looking forward to the 2021-2022 School Year!  Our staff is one of the BEST in Broward County and beyond!  Our commitment is to work with each child and their family to make sure that they reach their highest potential.  This goal requires a partnership between the child, the teacher and the family.  It is all our responsibility to ensure that each child gets the most out of their education and that each opportunity is taken to propel our students towards success.  We know that each child is unique and as such, our staff is responsive to individual needs and unlocking the best ways to help children learn. 

    The great work being done at Sawgrass does not end with academics.  Sawgrass Elementary also offers an array of other areas of interest for students.  We offer after-school clubs that are run by our own teachers and that appeal to student interest outside of the classroom such as, Robotics, Debate, and Performing Arts to name a few.  It is an important that our students find academic success and that they also find other areas to excel in and discover their talents.  It is our objective to provide a menu of options throughout the school year where students can find their area(s) of acceleration.

    Our Sawgrass PTA is STRONG!  Thanks to the amazing support of our parents, we have been able to raise funds, provide family fun events and invest in our classrooms.  Every parents’ involvement in our school is crucial.  I invite every family to find the area in which can support the school’s efforts the best.  Whether it is through our PTA, volunteering in classrooms, keeping in touch with your child’s teacher or helping your child with their schoolwork your support is valued and needed.

    As always, if there is a need, an idea or a question, please reach out and let us assist you.

    Best,

    Stephen DeCotis,
    Principal
