February Parent Edition

February recognizes the sacrifices made by significant African American figures, both past, and present. Try to take a moment each day to learn about some of those prominent figures that have helped shape our nation. Happy Black History Month!

When we’re talking about diversity, it’s not a box to check. It is a reality that should be deeply felt and held and valued by all of us.

Principal's Corner

I can’t believe it is February already and the end of the school year is approaching. We look forward to a busy next couple of months full of fun, learning, and family engagement. We are excited to have in-person learning and to be working with your child. I hope all of our families find the SCES Newsletter informative along with the other sources such as Class Dojo and the Schoolinfo app. Keeping this in mind, I would like to stress the importance of protecting the integrity of instruction. I need your help to ensure that students are at school at the start of the day which is at 8:00 a.m. and until the end of the instructional day at 3:00 p.m. Our teachers, support staff, and children work extremely hard to maximize learning experiences in hopes to set the tone for a positive and successful academic school year.

Additionally, thank you for taking seriously the responsibility of your child’s education. Thank you very much for your continued support and for helping us make Sussex Central Elementary School a place of teaching and learning. Please remember communication, collaboration, and commitment is the key to our success. We can’t do this without you. If you should have any questions or concerns please contact the school. Together we all can make a difference and grow a stronger community.

What's Happening at SCES?

Classroom Celebrations

On Monday, February 14, 2022, students will be allowed to participate in Valentine's Day celebrations at the end of the day. Students are allowed to bring in store-bought items, only. Parents, we regret to inform you that Valentine's Day cards will not be distributed among students. Please reach out to your child's teacher for any further questions.
In an effort to give our students the ultimate education they deserve, they must attend school. However, sometimes unforeseen situations occur. If your child is out for medical reasons, please call the school to inform the office staff in addition to providing a doctor's excuse noting the student's return date.

Should your child be out for an extended period of time, contact your child's teacher and arrangements will be made to ensure your child receives work.

As an added layer, please expect notices to come home in reference to attendance. Please see the information below for the specifics of the notices. Thank you for your continued support of your child's education.

Effective Communication

Although we hope all things go as planned, sometimes, they do not. When that happens, we all must find ways to adapt to our situations in an effective manner. Effective communication is one key to a successful relationship with students, staff, and stakeholders. Whenever there are issues concerning students or staff, please contact the school. Please remember to remain respectful and courteous at all times.

Bus Expectations

Parents, we are seeing an increase in bus discipline referrals. Please share with your child the importance of following rules on the bus for the safety of your child and other students. Please stress the importance of adhering to the following:

  • Stay in your seat while the bus is in motion
  • Respect the bus driver
  • Refrain from excessive and loud talking
  • Keep hands and feet to yourself

It's That Time of Year!

SCES is excited to participate in another fundraiser! Beginning Monday, February, 7, 2022, all SCES students are invited to participate in a penny drive. Your child may bring in as many pennies he/she can manage. The penny drive fundraiser will last from February 7th through February 25th. There will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize winner for the top three classes that bring in the most pennies. Have fun!

Doughnut Fundraiser

Immediately following the penny drive fundraiser, SCES will participate in a Krispy Kreme doughnut fundraiser that will begin February 28th through March 11th. More information will be forthcoming.
