2023/2024 Student Registration

With the school year winding down, it's time to plan for next year! If you have not yet registered your student for 2023-2024, now is the time to lock in your spot and ensure a teacher and class schedule for fall. Online registration can be accessed through the "Registration" header of the district website, Campus and district office staff are available to answer questions or assist you with registration steps. Without pre-registering, your child cannot have a teacher assigned or a schedule finalized, and cannot participate in school extracurriculars preparing for 2023-2024 during the summer. Please help us return in August read to roll a fantastic new year!

Check Out Earlies

As the end of the year approaches, there will be many special end-of-year events on the calendar. We kindly request that students remain at school for the full day rather than being checked-out early. When students leave early, they miss instructional time and other activities planned. In addition, when waves of parents come to the office to check-out, meeting campus needs (answering phone calls and radio calls, handling transportation requests, manning the front door, locating classes and calling for students) becomes especially challenging. Please keep that in mind if checking your student out cannot be avoided. Patience is appreciated! Thank you for your support and understanding!

Caught with Character!

We have two new "Caught with Character" recipients this week! Teachers nominated these kids for...

-"If she sees a friend or other child is sad, she goes to them, holds their hand, pats their back, talks to them, and helps in any way that is needed. Her heart is huge and so loving!"

-"He is always a great listener in class. He is a leading example for others. He also is very helpful to his teacher!"

Being a good person and demonstrating character will NEVER grow old! Way to show spirit, pride, and honor, Bullpups!!!!!!

Average Daily Attendance for SGE

Big picture

ADA stands for Average Daily Attendance. Average Daily Attendance is defined as the total days of student attendance divided by the total days of instruction. Check out SGE's ADA trends in the chart above.

We're going to "STRIVE FOR 95!" while also knowing that "98 IS Great!" 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 for 98%!

Viewing Progress Reports and Report Cards

Please look at how your child is progressing. If you have questions, please reach out to your child's teacher.
