Congratulations, Mrs. Ledford!

Mrs. LeffordCongratulations to Mrs. Ashleigh Ledford for being honored as one of Upstate Parent Magazine's 2024 Educators Who Makes a Difference! Music has been Mrs. Ledford's lifelong passion, starting from her early piano lessons in second grade and growing into a journey of musical exploration and education. Her dedication to music is not just about teaching notes; it's about creating a supportive and caring environment where each student feels valued and heard. For 12 years, Mrs. Ledford has nurtured the talents of students at Sterling School and Charles Townes Center, leading the CTC Griffin Band to outstanding achievements. Her commitment to teaching the #WholeChild and building meaningful relationships with her students shines through in every note played and every bond formed. Thank you, Mrs. Ledford, for making a difference in the lives of our students through the power of music!


🏆 Sterling School Named Finalist for SIC Riley Award

SIC Award

We are thrilled to announce that Sterling School has been selected as finalists for the prestigious Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence! Of the many schools across our state, only five have been chosen as finalists, and we are incredibly proud to be among them. This recognition is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment of our School Improvement Council (SIC), who tirelessly support our school community. We extend a special word of thanks to our SIC Chair, Catherine Schumacher, and Vice Chair, Chloe McGoogin!

Since its inception in 2002, the Riley Award has celebrated the invaluable contributions of SIC members to public education, highlighting their role in fostering parent and civic engagement within our schools. This honor reflects not only our SIC's achievements but also the collaborative spirit of our entire Sterling family – parents, educators, and community members alike. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the finalists, including our neighbors at Lake Forest Elementary.

As we eagerly await the announcement of the winner later this month, let us continue to celebrate this achievement and the positive impact we make together for the benefit of our students.
