Principal's Message

SES Families,

We are looking forward to our Boosterthon FunRun tomorrow! Our students have been excited this past week participating in the Boosterthon huddles that focused on character traits with this year's theme, "Mind Spark, Wild West". We hope you are able to make it out tomorrow morning for the event. The weather should be nice!


Peter Olinger, Principal


  • Boosterthon FunRun: Our students are excited and will be running tomorrow morning! Please see the times below for when each grade level will run.
  • Curriculum Night: This event will be held on Tuesday, October 8. A flyer with more information should have gone home with Tuesday folders.
  • Vision and Hearing Screening: These screenings will be held on Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and next Thursday. Nurse Sova is still looking for a few volunteers if any parents are willing to help. If you are, please see the link to sign up for a time.!/showSignUp/10c0d4aa5a623a5fa7-vision
  • Fort Mill School District App: The FMSD has developed a district app that you can download for free on your smartphone to help you access notifications, calendars, and much more. When you download the app, you can select the schools your children attend. This will help with school notifications and events.
  • Morning Drop-Off: This is a reminder that we open our front doors and begin supervision at 7:05 am. Please do not drop off students prior to that time, as there will not be supervision for your child. We want to be sure all students are safe. Thank you!
