A Message from our Principal Mrs. MayWelcome to Sandlapper Elementary, “Where Leaders Get Their STARt!”


On behalf of the Sandlapper Faculty and Staff, we welcome you to Sandlapper Elementary, home of the Stars!  


Sandlapper is committed to creating a community of lifelong learners that involves parents, teachers, students, staff and community partners. As a Leader In Me Lighthouse School of Academic Distinction, we are proud that all students are leaders and take ownership of their own learning. We encourage the growth of each child at Sandlapper by educating the whole child through academic and social-emotional skills as well as recognizing that every child is a leader. Our mission statement selected by students is: “Leadership: Choose It! Own It! Live It!”  This mission statement reflects the collective voice of our students that leadership is indeed a core component of the Sandlapper culture.  


We have a dedicated and dynamic faculty and staff at Sandlapper!  As a faculty, we collaborate and reflect on our teaching as we model and share our passion for lifelong learning.


We invite you to join us on this journey! We extend an open invitation for parents to visit the school. Parent involvement is encouraged and appreciated. Please consider being an active member of our School Improvement Council, PTO, or becoming a parent volunteer.


We are committed to the continuation of the collaborative culture of Sandlapper and to making a positive impact in the lives of your children. Working together, we will prepare your student as a well rounded individual that will possess the skills to succeed in their future endeavors.


We look forward to working with you. Please feel free to stop by or call to discuss any concerns, suggestions or other ideas you have to improve your child’s experience at Sandlapper.
