About Our School

Our school is named after Louis F. Sinsheimer (1869-1951) the great-grandfather of our local Sinsheimer family. October 24, 1954 marked the dedication of our school and the beginning of 60 years of excellence!
After 60 years it has been fun to look back and reflect on the changes within our school. The original school built in 1954 had seven classrooms  and a small office, with an enrollment of 227. Our current school has 15 classrooms, an art/science room, music room, Sun & Fun room, gymnasium, library, computer lab, a large staff room, a spacious office and work room and several smaller offices; with an enrollment of approximately 370 students. During these 60 years there have been seven principals: Tex Willard (18 years), Ralph Murphy (6 years), Cliff Hiatt (5 years), Jim Miller (8 years), Don Nicholson (10 years), Joyce Hunter (10 years),  and Jeff Martin (9 years). Jessica Miller is the current principal. The first PTA was formed in 1955-56 during the second year of the school and continues today, strong as ever.
We have had two different mascots, the Sinsheimer Tiggers (1978) and the Sinsheimer Stingers (1983). Among other changes, our newsletters have been titled, The Grapevine (1972), Tigger Tales (1978) and What’s Buzzin’ (1983).
Throughout its 60+ year history, there have been different hair styles, different dress styles, and different games on the playground, but fortunately the important things in our school have remained the same!
