Sullivans Island Elementary School (SIES) is a special place. It is a place where everyone strives for excellence – the Pricipal, the parents, the staff, the faculty and the students. Our school offers so much more than the average elementary school in the Charleston County School District (CCSD).  Our school is truly a learning community, where everyone is given an opportunity to succeed.

One of the reasons SIES is so successsful in providing a first class education is the fact that we are dedicated to raising funds to complement the funds that are spent by CCSD.  We make sure that the children that attend SIES have a nurse on campus 5 days a week instead of 3 as provided by CCSD, Spanish classes in K – 5th Grade which is not funded by CCSD, a computer teacher that integrates our curriculum with the use of the newest technology so our students leave prepared for the future also this would not be possible without these funds. And finally, we, the donors to CCF via Friends and PTA also funded the guidance counselor this year. Many parents wonder what a guidance couselor does in elementary school – well ours stays very very busy.  The popular saying “everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarten” in many ways is accurate if you say elementary school.  Having a full time guidance counselor available to help teachers and the pricipal work with students everyday addressing simple friendship issues to crisis situations is part of what makes us our school so successful and keeps us moving forward.   

Every year what we fund through money raised by parents can change but one thing is certain…Our school, SIES is one of the best schools because we have the flexibility through these funds to add value to our children’s educational experience in meaningful and measurable ways.  That is a difference that sets us apart.
