SCES First "Meet & Mingle" Event

Thank you so much to everyone who braved the wind last Wednesday to join our first SCES social event! It was really special for me to see and hear the excitement of so many, especially upon the return visit down to the school! Gerald, Trevin, and Andre promise that once it is warmer and dryer we WILL be able to tour the school...inside and out. During my mingling, I filtered some really great questions. I am working on a list of Frequently Asked Questions that I will work on over the next week and will begin to include these in my weekly updates. Again, thank you for a great event and I look forward to the planning of our next one!

Shoally Creek Elementary School Family Night Events

Upon the Board's approval of the new attendance zones at the March 8th meeting, every student at BSES, HES, and CFG will be mailed a letter sharing their school zone for the 2016-2017 school year. For those students that will be rezoned to attend Shoally Creek Elementary, we will be hosting evening events for families. The dates have been set for the following evenings and we would love for you to join us when the event is held at your respected schools:


Monday, March 14, 2016 at 6:30 PM - Carlisle-Foster's Grove Cafe for CFG Families

Thursday, March 17, 2016 at 6:30 PM - Boiling Springs Elementary Cafe for BSES Families

Monday, March 21, 2016 at 6:30 PM - Hendrix Elementary Cafe for HES Families


We have prepared an agenda for the evening which includes a brief historical overview of the Shoally Creek/Belue Farm area, announce SCES staff members, provide school population demographics, share updated construction information, discuss the creation of the school's Mission, Vision, etc. (including a lead-in to the nomination/selection process of our school mascot and colors) and conclude with a Q & A session. We will also have some light refreshments and a couple activities for our students! We are looking forward to building positive energy about our newest district elementary school!
