-spending her recess picking up trash to "help the Earth!"

-taking initiative to be a guide and friend to a new student!

Way to be leaders on campus, kiddos!

SGE Attendance Tracking

SGE's ADA for this past week was 94.96%.

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%!

Battle of the Cans!

Battle time!

On Sept. 26 through October 13, Burnet will be taking on Marble Falls in a "Battle of the Cans" food drive! Both school districts will collect canned goods for two weeks. The winner will be announced during halftime at the October 13th football game! Gooooooooooo, Green! Bring your cans, SGE!
