SGE Family Newsletter

For the Week of May 16-20

Estimados Padres,

Queríamos hacerles saber que, cuando necesitan ponerse en contacto con la escuela, y no hay ninguna emergencia, vamos a tener a una de las maestras ayudantes que puede hablar español en la oficina entre la 1:35 y las 2:35 p.m. Seguro que puedan llamar en cualquier momento si tiene alguna emergencia y es urgente hablar con el personal de la escuela.


Mrs. O’Hair

Directora de la Escuela Elemental de Shady Grove

Field Day Schedule Change!!

Due to the forecasted heat on Friday, May 20th, we have altered the Field Day schedule.

PreK and Kindergarten were originally scheduled for the afternoon of Friday, May 20th. In an effort to avoid the hottest time of the day, we have bumped their Field Day to the morning of Thursday, May 19th.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change in schedule may inflict, however we feel this adjustment is safest when considering prolonged time outdoors in this unusually high heat with our young students.

Coach Giesenschlag and Coach Tyler will be contacting Pre-K and Kindergarten volunteers who had previously signed up for Friday, May 20th. Parents, feel free to reach out to them as well!

New Schedule:

Thursday, May 19

8:00-9:30 Kindergarten

9:40-11:10 PreK

Friday, May 20

8:00-9:30 2nd Grade

9:40-11:10 1st Grade

Remember to apply sunscreen and wear a cap!

Big picture


Our Lost-and-Found racks are full! We have sweaters, hoodies, coats, lunch boxes, and water bottles. If you're missing something, have your child swing by the Lost-and-Found.

The racks are currently placed in our foyer. Be sure to take a quick glance if you're visiting on campus. Any unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the year.

Ongoing Reminders and Quick Links


Is your child celebrating a birthday? Feel free to send individually wrapped birthday treats for your child's class. The teacher will serve them at an appropriate time according to each class's end-of-day schedule.

Please keep in mind the "individually wrapped" condition when planning the treat to send with your student. Individually wrapped treats minimize exposure to extra handling.

Car Line Reminders

-Are you parking on Harvey St. by the grove of trees to drop-off in the morning? If so, please walk your child to a staff member in the front of the building rather than sending him/her to walk alone. Please also avoid blocking residential driveways and bus traffic.

-As a reminder, cars must remain in a single file line on County Road 200. Once in the school's driveway, cars may merge into the appropriate PK/K or 1st/2nd grade lane. (We have observed that some cars are driving past the line of cars on CR 200, turning into the fire lane, and then cutting into their lane in front of all of the cars who are following the appropriate car line procedures. Be kind in line!)

-No in-person pick-up after 3:00pm until the car line is finished. As we work to dismiss our students in a timely and orderly fashion, we must keep the front entry/exit doors uncrowded. As a result, parents needing to check their students out must do so before 3:00pm or after the car line is finished.

Other general reminders:

-Help us keep the line moving as quickly and safely as possible by staying in your car, seating your student on the right side of the vehicle, and giving goodbye hugs and kisses before the drop-off line!

-If adults need to exit the car for any reason (to walk student in, to help student unbuckle, etc), please park in a parking space and walk your child across the crosswalk.


How do I request a change in transportation?

-student's full name

-student's grade level

-student's homeroom teacher

-the transportation change you want made for today (bus to car, car to bus, etc)

In order to ensure a smooth dismissal process for all students, requests made after 1:30pm will not be processed. Notes, phone calls, text messages and emails sent to any other email will not be processed.
