    Sawnee Elementary opened in 1968 as part of a consolidation of Matt, Ducktown and Friendship schools. Mr. Ray Bennett was the first principal to the 640 students in grades one through eight. It is named after Sawnee Mountain, a five mile ridge in Forsyth County that was named for a local Cherokee who helped Europeans adjust to his native land. The Sawnee campus was divided between a primary and elementary school for many years. In 2001, the original building was demolished, which was replaced with a new building in 2002. The primary and elementary schools were combined into one elementary school in 2007. The 18-19 school year marked Sawnee's 50th Anniversary!
