Big Kahuna Fundraiser Information

Our BIG KAHUNA fundraiser concluded on October 20th! Please turn in your order forms and money if you haven't already done so.

Big Kahuna plans to deliver orders to campus on Tuesday, November 28th. Parents will need to plan on picking up packages from 1:00-4:00pm that day. Please mark your calendar now and plan on swinging by campus that day to pick up your orders from 1:00-4:00pm. We are not able to send orders home with students.

Big Kahuna schedules the party bus, and once those plans are made, they will be communicated to students and families!

Thank you for your efforts in supporting our school!

Leaders of the Pack!

These two second graders are leaders on our campus! Teachers recognized them for:

-kindness, thoughtfulness and helping others!

-gathering up the sand toys and trash scattered around the playground on her own initiative!

Way to be an example to others kiddos, and great job, Moms and Dads!

SGE Attendance Tracking

SGE's ADA for this past week was 94.4%.

ADA stands for Average Daily Attendance and is defined as the total days of student attendance divided by the total days of instruction. "98 IS Great!", so 98% is our goal!

See the directions below, and be sure to get those signatures in! In addition, parents are encouraged to regularly view grades in Skyward.
