Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher conferences have begun and will continue through Nov. 5th. This beginning-of-the-year conference is a valuable opportunity for teachers and parents to get some face-to-face time to discuss students' academic achievement. If you have not received information yet from your child's teacher regarding the conference, please be on the look for information coming soon.

Car Line Reminders

As a reminder, cars must remain in a single file line on County Road 200. Once in the school's driveway, cars may merge into the appropriate lane.

We have observed that some cars are driving past the line of cars on CR 200, turning into the fire lane, and then cutting into their lane in front of all of the cars who are following the appropriate car line procedures. Be kind in line!

Pack shoes for PE!

A reminder from Coach Giesenschlag:

Please help your student remember to bring appropriate shoes for PE. We see a lot of flip flops, boots with heels, and Crocs. Sometimes, non-athletic shoes can present safety concerns depending on the activities we have planned. Students can always pack sneakers, change into them before PE, and change out of them after PE. Thanks for your help!

Shady Grove is hosting a Read-a-Thon!

The Read-a-Thon will last from October 11-22. The money raised will be used to enrich the learning environment for SGE students and staff! Start-up information was sent home last week. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to the front office! Below are some FAQs...

How do we raise money?

You raise money from sponsors who support your reading efforts. Sponsors are people like friends and family who care about your education. You get the most sponsors by using our free tools that include emailing, texting, Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Sponsors make a one-time flat donation to support the school and student as they focus on reading!

What books do our readers use?
The great thing about the program is that you can choose the books your readers will read or they can read their own choices. The important thing is the reading time not the reading materials.

How does the prize center work?

Readers keep 15% of the money they individually raise to spend in the prize store.
