We SMASHED our Goal for Riley!

Thank you so much for your support and generosity last week during annual Riley Week! We had such a fun week filled with laughter, rainbows, sports gear, Riley red, and so much more. A heartfelt thank you to all our students, staff, families, and loved ones that supported us and this wonderful cause.

Special thanks to Jennifer Jacks for setting things up and managing it all.

We exceeded our fundraising goal we set along with last year's total which is incredible!

Until next year, SCE!

Spring Picture Day is Tuesday, March 22. Only students who order spring pictures will be photographed.

This week and last week, students have been practicing coding. It's been amazing, with our third graders stepping up to guide our kindergarteners.

Mrs. C is still in need of donations of jumbo/milkshake straws and paper cups.

It's nearly spring, and that means playground mud. Students ware encouraged to be smart around puddles and mud, but life happens. Puddles are fun!

Please put a full change of clothes, underclothes, socks, and shoes, in your child's backpack for when the mud wins.

Honor and Excellence Awards for our Support Staff

Honor and Excellence are two of the terms that appear on the Hamilton Southeastern Crest. One might attribute these qualities to our students, and rightly so, but the same terms can also describe our staff. We honor representatives of our outstanding teachers at the end of each year through the Teacher of the Year program. We would also like to recognize representatives from our SUPPORT STAFF who demonstrate excellence in their work, particularly in a school year like no other!

We are looking for support staff employees who go beyond the normal expectations of their job description resulting in outstanding support of Hamilton Southeastern students and the Hamilton Southeastern Community.

Nominees must be Hamilton Southeastern employees or contracted employees working in our buildings. They could be from any support staff category, including: custodial services, transportation, food service, technology, grounds, secretarial, instructional assistants, maintenance, accounting, treasurers, school resource officers, nurses, therapists, probation officers, substitutes, etc. Qualifications to be nominated would include anything beyond the normal expectations of the person’s job. It could be a “one-time” act or a series of acts.

Nominations may be received from any person from the Hamilton Southeastern Community, including: professional staff, support staff, parents, students, community members, etc.

Feel free to nominate past recipients of the award. Past award winners are eligible to be chosen again.

If you would like to nominate someone for this award, please complete the form on or before March 20. If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Moore at Be sure to get your nomination in early - those received after March 20 will not be considered.

Thanks for your help in honoring the excellent work of our support staff!
