Leader of the Pack

Our “Leader of the Pack” was selected this week because of the compassion shown to his classmates. "A couple of friends in class were sad their grandparents couldn’t make it to Books & Cookies.” This leader “shared encouraging words and hugs to help them feel better.”

Way to sprinkle around kindness, kiddo!

SGE Attendance Tracking

SGE's ADA for this past week was 96.93%.

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! We recognize that illnesses and events take place that necesitate absences, however, we do encourage every student to be in school every day he/she is able. Let's work toward 98%!
