NGES Principal Headshot



Mrs. Sewell

Dear North Gresham Community ,

It is with great pleasure and immense pride that I extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you visiting our school's web page. As the proud principal of North Gresham for the past four years and a dedicated member of the district for a decade, I am honored to celebrate my 23rd year in the field of education.

North Gresham is not just a school to me; it is a thriving community of exceptional students, dedicated staff, and supportive parents and community members. The vibrancy and enthusiasm that emanate from our incredible community make every day a rewarding experience.

I have had the privilege of witnessing the growth and achievements of our students over the years, and it is evident that our future lies in the capable hands of these young minds. As educators, we are responsible for ensuring that they are equipped with academic knowledge and essential life skills. A well-rounded education, character development, and leadership skills form the foundation upon which our students can build successful and fulfilling lives.

I am committed to fostering an environment at North Gresham where students can explore their potential, embrace challenges, and develop into responsible and compassionate individuals. Together, as a united community, we can empower our students to navigate the complexities of the future with confidence and resilience.

I invite you to partner with us in shaping our students' educational journey. Let us continue to make North Gresham a place where excellence is nurtured, diversity is celebrated, and each individual is valued.

Thank you for being an integral part of our amazing North Gresham community.

Warm regards,

Shawnda Sewell
North Gresham Elementary School
