SES Book Swap!!
Give a Book! Take a Book!
The SES Book Swap was a great success! The number of students participating during their recess time increased each day during the week-long event. Students came in laughing and talking with their books ready to trade. It was wonderful just watching them search for a “new” book with excitement and anticipation! I probably had the most fun of all! Our next Book Swap will be March 13-17, 2017.

SES Participates in SNAP-Ed (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Education)
More about SNAP-Ed...
There is a link between nutrition, physical activity, and the well-being of individuals and families. The typical Arkansas diet has too much fat and does not include enough fruits, vegetables, and whole-grains. This diet in conjunction with too little physical activity contributes to the development of serious health problems. Fortunately, the Arkansas SNAP-Ed program is available to help us make better choices about what we eat so that we can stay active and live better.

Pop Tabs at SES
Pop Tab Pandemonium: School Edition
Students, faculty and staff can collect pop tabs and compete against other schools for the title of 2016-2017 Pop Tab Pandemonium School Edition Champion!
What does RMHCA do with the pop tabs?
We recycle tabs and the money we receive helps pay for families to stay at the Ronald McDonald House. We do not require our families to pay to stay, so this program alleviates some of the costs associated with housing 28 families each night.
Visit the site below to find out more about Ronald McDonald House.
We Are Family
We are UnStoppable!!
We will have certain days throughout the year that we will ask the students to wear the shirts to show a Family!!
We are reading Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. In the book, Stanley gets crushed with a bulletin board. He’s fine, but now he’s flat! Luckily for us, that means he is very easy to travel with or can be folded into an envelope and sent anywhere in the world.
That leads us into a fun reading project with him! The children are coming home today with their own Flat Stanley. You are invited to take him anywhere you’d like for a little adventure (family trips, camping, to the beach, to grandparents’ house, to the store, to a sporting event, etc.) Flat Stanley can also be mailed to friends or family out of state or even out of the country! We’re hoping you’ll record his adventures and text any pictures to SES at 8704552198 or send them to email@example.com by Friday, December 16. Please include who, what, when and where information with your pictures. They will be shared in class and posted on our library bulletin board. We can’t wait to see all of the fun places Flat Stanley gets to visit!
For more information about Flat Stanley, visit this website http://www.flatstanleybooks.com! You’ll find games and activities for children, more about Flat Stanley books, and plenty of ideas for your adventures with Flat Stanley.
Thanks for making reading come alive!

Character Education: Word of the Month
In order to promote character education at SES, we are going to start showcasing our students who model the monthly character words. Mrs. Brown has lots of resources for teachers to use throughout the month of October to help promote the character word.
At the end of the month, we will ask teachers to nominate (can be with the help of the students) two students (one boy, one girl) who model the characteristics of the character education word of the month. During the last week of the month those students will be recognized with “Lunch with Mrs. Brown.” The students will receive lots of Sheridan goodies to take home as well. The students will be showcased on the bulletin board in each hallway throughout the following month.
There are many volunteering opportunities at SES. All volunteering is flexible. We appreciate any and all assistance you can give to our teachers and students. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form below.

Box Tops for Education
We are having a Box Top collection contest during the 2016-2017 school year. We will collect Box Tops from each class.
Box Tops Tips:
Please trim all excess off of all labels prior to turning them in; it saves us time and shipping. Please use the attached collection sheet and either glue or tape the box top in the square. Each filled page of box tops will amount to $3.00 and will be counted toward your child’s class. Please check the expiration dates prior to sending in. Bonus Box Tops have to be kept separate from regular box tops. Please make sure your child’s name and teacher are printed on the collection sheet. If you need more collection sheets, contact the office or your child’s teacher.
