Week of 1/29

Benchmarks Continue on Monday for 5th Grade Science

Please make sure your child charges his/her laptop Sunday night, January 28. Fifth grade students will be taking the county-wide Science benchmark on Monday. Please make sure your child is here so they avoid make-up testing (unless he/she is sick).

3rd grade field trip

Third grade students will travel to the Neuseway Nature Park in Kinston on Friday. Please remember your bagged lunch if you signed up to bring one and dress appropriately. Our weather changes often, so layers may be best and comfortable shoes for walking.

Tardies have decreased!

During the first 9 weeks, students were checked out early 591 times. This nine weeks, that number was reduced by 70 to 521, an 11.8% reduction. Please help us continue to lower this by only using check outs for necessary appointments and sickness. This helps us increase much needed instructional time in the classrooms.

Focus on Habit 1

SDE is a Franklin Covey Lighthouse School and we focus on the 7 habits. Our students know and understand these well. One thing you can do at home is to ask your child this week how they've been using Habit 1, Be Proactive, at home. We want them to think about and use their habits at home and school to help them grow.
