Sutherland Elementary School

Our Mission – Preparing today’s children for tomorrow’s world.

Welcome to Sutherland Elementary School’s web page! We invite you to visit it often to see the many activities that are taking place at our school. The faculty and staff are working hard to ensure that every child will be successful. As always, we encourage and welcome parent, guardian and community support of all our activities. This partnership is vital to the success of our efforts to teach and inspire our children.  We would also like to urge all our parents to join the PTO and stay involved at Sutherland Elementary.

Our philosophy is to help students become life-long learners and productive citizens of the 21st century. Our objective is to promote critical thinking and problem solving skills, while encouraging our students to become creative, independent thinkers and individuals of strong moral character.

We are fortunate to have an outstanding faculty and staff who are committed to the success of our students. In addition, we need your support. We need to work together, as a unified team, to successfully educate our children. We ask you to ensure that your children arrive to school on time and attend on a regular basis. Coming to school prepared, with homework and the appropriate materials are extremely important for the success of our students. Likewise, we ask that students follow school rules and act responsibility and respectfully toward peers and adults.

Thank you for entrusting us with your children each day. It is a privilege and a responsibility we do not take lightly. We earnestly solicit your suggestions and will count on each of you to uphold the reputation, tradition and spirit of our school and to do everything possible to make Sutherland Elementary the best school it can be. Please feel free to call me at (804) 732-4168 or email me at cpowell@dcpsnet.org at any time.

We look forward to working with you and your children!
