Principal's Message

Profile image for MARIA BENNETT


Dear SGE Family,

I am so excited to be in yet another wonderful school year here at Stamping Ground Elementary School. Our school recently recieved news that we were a Distinguished school for the first time & we received the prestigious title of being a School of Distinction! What a tremendous honor & a wonderful representation of the hard work that goes on each and every day! 

We know that our teachers are working hard to deliver intentional & rigorous curriculum to each of our students based on their needs. We also know that our parents & families work with our students to provide them the support they need to be successful here at school. We also know that our SGE kids are top notch & that when we push them to try new & difficult things they rise to the occasion. 

I invite you to come see what is going on in our buliding! We have several opportunities for our parents, families, & community to get involved. Our WatchDOG program allows fathers, uncles, & grandfathers to volunteer at least one day a year to help teachers in various roles & provide positive male role models in our building. Our active PTO also contributes so much of their time & resources to help our school & they are always seeking new help & new members. Our Site Based Decision Making Council meets on the 2nd Monday of every month in our library at 5:30 PM. All are welcome to attend those meetings. New this year is the addition of Coffee Chat once a month where I invite parents & family members to come have coffee & doughnuts with me. This is a time where I can let you know what all is going on in our building, but more importantly, it allows you time to come ask questions that you have of me. I cherish this monthly meeting & this opportunity for me to connect with our school community. Please contact the school office at (502) 570-8800 for additional information on any of these items. 

Finally, I'd like to leave you with our new school vision. Over the summer, the staff & I worked together to develop the things that we felt are most important to our school & the things we want to be known for in our community. Please take some time to look over our vision & where we want to go as a school.

Stamping Ground Elementary Vision

Stamping Ground Elementary is a safe and inviting environment that fosters collaborative relationships within the school community. Our school values a mindset of consistent and continual growth in order to help our students achieve their fullest potential academically, behaviorally, and socially. Our goal is that all Stamping Ground Elementary students receive the foundation they need to become lifelong learners as well as respectful and successful citizens.


Our theme this year is "Oh, the places we'll go..." based on the Dr. Seuss book. All year we will continue to focus on where we want to go, setting goals for ourselves, how we plan to meet those goals, and how to grow as indiviiduals in ALL areas of our life. I could not be more proud to be a part of this amazing school family! I know that our kids & school will only continue to shine with your help & I am excited to see all of the many places we will go!
