He Sees You When You're Reading! Winter Break Reading Challenge!
Your child will be coming home with a Christmas Break Reading Log! Each time your child reads with you for 20 minutes during the Christmas break, add it to the chart. Complete the whole chart and return it to your teacher when we come back on January 9th. Students will celebrate their reading with a special hot chocolate delivery to the classroom on January 12!
An "Event Ticket" will be sent home with all students. Visitors are encouraged to bring this ticket on the day of the party for an expedited entry into the building. Visitors who do not have the ticket will need to stand in line and sign in at the front desk with a picture ID. Please be polite to the ladies in the office who will be doing their best to accommodate the mass waves of visitors in a safe and timely manner!
Students checked out before 9:00 AM will be counted absent for the day.

SGE Attendance Tracking
SGE's ADA for this past week was 89.68%.
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!
Notification of Student Absence
A parent must provide an explanation for any absence within 5 days of the student’s arrival or return to school. The student must submit a note signed by the parent. The campus may accept an email from the parent sent to the school’s attendance clerk, but reserves the right to require a written note. The form below will send an email to SGE's Attendance Clerk and then the campus will determine whether to classify the absence as excused or unexcused.
This information may also be found on the BCISD website:
