Dear Students and Parents:
I am honored to introduce myself as the principal of Sandy Creek High School. Having gained
much experience as a high school principal in Middle Georgia and also in Central Alabama, I am
truly excited for the opportunity to serve in the Fayette County School System.
The staff and faculty members of Sandy Creek are a group of hard-working professionals who are
committed to providing the best possible educational experience to every student who enters the
doors of this school. As principal and instructional leader of Sandy Creek, I am committed to the
continuous improvement of the academic program, extracurricular activities, and the overall school
climate. I also invite parents to take part by volunteering to serve on school committees, becoming
members of the Parents/Teachers/ Students Organization (PTSO), and to support our booster clubs.
Again, I am excited to be at Sandy Creek, and I look forward to working with students and parents
in making 2015-2016 a school year that is more rewarding and enjoyable than ever before.
Robert E. Hunter, Ed. S.
