It's Holiday Party Time at SEES

Just a reminder that it's a busy time of year. Parking will be at a premium. Please remind parents to arrange in advance to be in your classroom, to check in when they arrive and check out when they leave...and be patient with us while we get used to our new electronic check in procedure.

Nag, Nag, Nag.....Take the Speak Up Survey!

Tally yourself and your classroom on the tally chart in the Teachers' Lounge. The reward is......wait for it.......donuts!
