Tree Planting

Regina Shultz and her crew from the City of Lakeland came to Sleepy Hill Elementary and planted a tree in our courtyard.  She had the help of all of our Kindergarten students and special guest Smokey the Bear! Each kindergartener got a seedling to take home and plant.  THANKS REGINA!!

Vision Statement

At Sleepy Hill Elementary, it is our vision that a rigorous, relevant curriculum, enhanced by technology that will assure our students achieve skills necessary to succeed academically and become life-long learners. Consistent integration of technology throughout the academic day will promote our students to become self guided explorers of the vast amounts of information available at their fingertips.  We will unite parents, faculty and community members to establish an atmosphere of mutual acceptance, ongoing interest in high levels of academic achievement, and a sense of community for all.   The realization of this vision will allow our learning community to interface with technology for a more fulfilling exploration of their global world.
