  • BRETT UNKE NAMED SUGARLOAF SCHOOL’S NEXT PRINCIPAL

    Current Stanley Switlik principal, Brett Unke, has been chosen as Sugarloaf School’s (SLS) next principal, according to Superintendent Mark Porter. Unke, will take over for current principal Harry Russell, who moves to the district’s Executive Director for Personnel Support and Instructional Leadership role beginning 2020-2021 school year. “Mr. Unke is an exemplary leader and a strong advocate for public education,” Porter said. “His dedication and commitment to the students and professional educators he works with make him the ideal candidate for SLS.” As the Principal of Stanley Switlik Elementary School for the past seven years, Unke has implemented programs such as Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS), Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), while continually achieving 5 STAR and Gold ratings for the top rated elementary school. Unke was also the administrative lead for the construction the new Stanley Switlik Elementary campus in Marathon. His construction background will be tapped once again as Sugarloaf school enters the planning phase for its upcoming school construction project. “Sugarloaf School is fortunate to have Brett Unke as their new principal,” said incoming Superintendent Theresa Axford, who also selected Unke as a member of the MCSD Back to School Task Force. “Brett’s ability to see all facets of a multi-tiered project to completion, coupled with his strong leadership skills will greatly benefit the students, staff, and families of Sugarloaf School.” While he is proud of the great strides made at Stanley Switlik during his tenure, Unke is looking forward to his new journey at the school where he first started his lifelong passion as a career educator. “I am excited to return to where it all started,” Unke said. “My first priority, as always, will continue to be providing educational programming that serves the needs of all students equally.”

  • Congratulations Mr. Harry Russell-MCSD 2020 Principal of the Year

    Superintendent Mark Porter has announced that Mr. Russell was selected the Monroe County School District 2020 Principal of the Year. Mr. Russell received multiple nominations and accolades from his staff and the community to earn him this honor and recognition. Sugarloaf School has recently demonstrated significant growth in student academic growth while maintaining their “A’ grade as a school. Harry is also one of our “go to” principals when it comes to school safety and security issues and has piloted several efforts in this regard. Safety Day at Sugarloaf School, Harry’s idea, is a tremendous demonstration of community partnership and support as representatives from law enforcement agencies across Monroe County come and bring with them some of their most specialized and impressive equipment. Our Shark Family is extremely happy for Mr. Russell and proud that he is receiving this well-deserved recognition. We thank him for his leadership and support for all of our staff, students and shark community.

  • Sugarloaf National Junior Honor Society Students Make a Charitable Donation

    Sugarloaf National Junior Honor Society students decided to make their charitable donation early this year. Instead of saving money for an end of year field trip, they gave $2,300 to the SOS Food Bank. According to NJHS president, 8th grader Abby Cowan, “During this time lots of families are going without jobs, unable to provide for their families, so we all felt and decided that it was most important to give our money to this organization, during a time like this. This tragic pandemic that is going around the whole world is affecting our community. We all just wanted to give back and help those in need as much as we could during this global crisis.”
