Dear SHCS Students, Families and Friends,

I am very excited to be writing this letter to you as the newly appointed Principal of Sackets Harbor Central School. It is an honor to have the opportunity to serve such an outstanding school and community, rich in tradition and excellence. I begin as principal of SHCS with almost 20 years of experience as a dedicated educator. I was a Special Education teacher for 16 years, an Instructional Coach supporting teachers in the classroom for one year, and a Supervisor at Jefferson-Lewis BOCES for the Programs for Exceptional Students the past two years. I live in the area and have an amazing husband, Stan, and two wonderful children, Hailey and Spencer. Over the next few months, I look forward to meeting and partnering with each and every one of you as I transition into my new role. I believe that the measure of Sackets Harbor Central School District’s success and excellence is a result of positive partnerships and the active participation of students, staff, families and community organizations. I am so lucky to be part of the SHCS family! As Principal, my main focus will continually be to…

· Meet with the staff and students daily

· Empower our staff and students to achieve great success in the areas of student achievement,

   school attitudes and community pride

· Engage the students in character development and leadership programs

· Manage the daily behavior and discipline needs of the school, as well as the positive school


· Work with the building staff to continue to identify the needs of the students

· Meet with parents, community and family members

· Support and develop programs that will enhance student achievement, life skills, and character

In closing, I take great pride in my commitment to the students’ needs and their learning environment. A school should be an inviting place where positive, lifelong experiences are made and used as the foundation for the rest of our lives. I am excited to be working with everyone in fostering this type of learning environment. I have an open door policy so please feel free to stop by for a visit. I look forward to meeting all of you.


Very Best,


Carrie M. Tibbles
