Special deliveries such as flowers, balloons, cookie bouquets, etc are are a real challenge for our little PreK - 2nd grade hands in addition to carrying their backpacks, jackets, water bottles, lunch boxes, etc. Please do not send special deliveries to school as we are not able to accept them.
Morning Drop Off Reminder!
Teachers and staff are not on duty until 7:15. If your child comes to school via car:
- the student should remain in the car until the 7:15 bell. Please do not allow your child to stand at the front do without a parent. Students need to be monitored!
- the parent / guardian should not leave the child before the 7:15 bell.
Allowing students to stand at the doors without supervision presents opportunities for conflict, games of chase, injury, unkind words, etc. Thank you for your cooperation!
Upcoming Family Night for our ESL and Bilingual Families!
Lost & Found
If you think your student misplaced his/her coat at school, have him check our Lost & Found.
The Lost & Found items are in our foyer and will remain there on the day of our Valentine parties. If you plan to attend, be sure to look through it!
Unclaimed items will be donated on the week of Spring Break.
February is Kindness Month!
Mrs. Figg is encouraging students to make the world a better place by spreading a little light around. She has hung kindness ideas around campus. Students can tear off ideas! Ask your child about the kindness he/she spread today!
"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." -Aesop
ADA - STRIVE for 95, but 98 is GRRRRRRREAT!
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%!
