Just Keep Reading!

We want to make sure our students have access to FREE online books and stories! You can find thousands of AR read alouds on YouTube. Just search for AR read alouds. I attached a link below to one of my favorites. It's called Grammy's Book Nook. She has set up dozens of playlists with multiple books your child can listen to and read.

Lunch for Our Students

Don't forget that our schools are serving lunches to students on school days! There are different stops around Okeechobee. A bus also stops each day at SES at 10:40 am in the bus circle.

Fundraiser

As of now, we are set to receive the fundraiser items this Friday. We will make a phone call and Facebook post once we have the items and they are available for pickup. This will likely begin next Monday.

We soar together!

I will be on campus during this period of distance learning. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. We are going to miss seeing the children everyday, but look forward to communicating with you through social media, texting and email.
