Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am very excited to be your new principal. It is with great enthusiasm that I come to the Henry County School System, especially to Stockbridge Elementary School! I am coming to Stockbridge Elementary with twenty years of experience as an educator at the elementary level. I spent my first five years as a kindergarten paraprofessional, and I also served as an upper elementary teacher for six years. I have spent the last nine years as a school site administrator.
I am looking forward to supporting our students, staff, parents, and community as a whole. I believe that together we can continue to build on the partnerships necessary to support our students in achieving at their highest levels academically, emotionally, and socially. I have a genuine passion for supporting students in getting the best possible education they can.
During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of Stockbridge Elementary the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens ready to master the challenges of the twenty-first century with a solid foundation created here at our school.
I am truly excited to join the Stockbridge family and share this upcoming school year with you and your child. As the principal, I have an open door policy and I welcome your input. Building a strong home-school partnership is important to me and vital to a child’s successful educational journey. Thank you for entrusting us to nurture, encourage, challenge, and enjoy your precious ones as we embark on the 2016-2017 school year.
Cynthia S. Jewell, Principal
