Welcome from the Principal

     I am pleased to welcome you to Sand Hill Elementary and to our webpage. When you come through our doors, you come into a school that has a caring staff that is genuinely concerned for all of our students.  We teach the whole child ~ academics and social/emotional. 

     We are currently a Pre-K through 5th-grade facility with 680 students. We provide enrichment opportunities for our students in music, physical education, art, two state of the art computer labs, and a STEAM Lab with 3-D computers. We are one-to-one with technology in grades 1-5.  We are working hard for our students to be ready for the 21st century. 

     Our school is a National Certified STEM school. We have school gardens with a greenhouse and two chicken coops. We have 3-D computers in our STEAM Lab. This year, we have started a Girls Who Code club.  Our Competitive Technology Team recently won 7 of the 15 areas at the Carroll County Technology Competition and second place in 3 areas.

     We offer the following after school activities: STEM Club, Robotics Club, K'nex Club, BETA Club, K-Kids, Chorus, SHE Broadcast Crew, and Road Runners. Our students participate in Science Olympiad, History Bee, Academic Team, Math Counts, Reading Bowl, and our county's Spelling Bee.

     Our school is a partner with the University of West Georgia.  We are a Professional Learning School and house many student interns and professors from UWG who teach classes on our campus.

     We invite you to explore our webpage.  We would love to take you on a tour of our campus.  We would love for you to see our students learning in different areas around our school.  

     We hope to meet you soon.  We hope you and your family become Sand Hill Patriots!
