Principal's Message

Principal Alicia CecilWelcome to South Anna Elementary, home of the Spirit Riders. I am excited to begin my fifth year serving as principal for this special school community. It is a privilege to work with motivated students, dedicated faculty and staff, supportive parents, and an involved community. The 2019–2020 school year holds much promise. We are committed to upholding our tradition of excellence while striving for continuous improvement. Together we can make each day a great day for learning for each child.

Each year we select a theme to unite our school community, build spirit, and serve as a focus for learning and achievement. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, this year’s space-oriented theme is “Mission: Out of this World Learning.” It reflects our commitment to relevant, innovative instruction and high expectations for each student. It reminds us that monumental achievements are possible when we dream big and persevere. As students “shoot for the moon,” they will ignite, explore, and succeed. We will launch opportunities for students to create, collaborate, communicate, problem solve, and think critically. As we educate the whole child for lifelong success, we will spark quality relationships, good citizenship, and positive behavior, focusing on respect, responsibility and kindness. Our goal for all Spirit Riders is that they reach their fullest potential as they live our school motto: Do your best; Be your best!  

We welcome you to blast off with us this September and volunteer your time and talents, join the PTA, become a business partner, and attend school events. We look forward to taking giant leaps in learning and creating lasting relationships and memories with you and your child(ren). With your support, in June we will be able to say, “Mission: Accomplished.” 

If there is any way that I can assist you, please contact me via email or phone at (804) 749-4222. 

Your partner in education,

Alicia Cecil, Principal
