Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Sewells Point Elementary School, Home of the Pointers!

    Sewells Point Elementary School is a school with a very strong sense of community. Teachers, parents, and administrators all work as a team to ensure the success of all students. The well being of every child is very important to us. Whether we are helping children master academic skills, cultivating positive social relationships, or guiding student behavior, we value the unique gifts every single child brings to our school.

    Parents are important members of our school team. We welcome your participation as we work together to create a positive and successful environment for our students. The valuable support we receive from our parents and the Sewells Point community will ensure a successful school experience for all of our students.

    Mary B. Wrushen
