I hope this March newsletter encourages Mother Nature to continue giving us this beautiful
spring weather! If we aren’t going to have snow, let’s move on and enjoy spring. Whatever the weather brings, March will be a busy month. We begin with parent/teacher conferences March 4th and 5th. Both days will be early release days. I hope your schedule enables you to take advantage of this opportunity to have some quality time with your child’s teacher.
We kick off our annual Kids Heart Challenge with an assembly on Monday, March 16th. We hope you will support our students with their efforts for this worthwhile cause. Performances will take place during gym classes the week of March 23rd.
Our second marking period officially ends on March 11th. Report cards are scheduled to go home on March 23rd. Our trimester 2 academic awards assembly will take place on April 9th at 2:15 pm.
Our first spirit day of the month will occur on March 17th with the wearing of the green. SES staff and students are invited to sport green attire as everyone is a “bit Irish” on March 17th J.
Students have been asking about the annual SES March Madness Banangram Challenge and some have been practicing for this eagerly anticipated contest. Our bracketologist, Mr. Coporale, will create the competitive brackets for any interested students in grades 3 through 6.We will kick off this exciting event with round #1 on March 13th. Round 2 will take place on March 20th and round 3 on March 27th. The championship, best out of three matches, will be announced after round 3.
Our March Madness spirit day takes place on Thursday, March 26th. Students and staff can sport the attire and/or colors of their favorite basketball teams.
We will begin our annual adventure into the world of the Smarter Balanced state assessments on Thursday, April 2nd. Please help us through this journey by making sure your children (grades 3 through 6) are well-rested and arrive to school on time!
Last but certainly not least…our chorus students are raising funds for their May performance tour in Philadelphia, PA. As one of their fundraisers, they are selling an SES “Roar for Life” T-shirt. An order form is included in this packet if you would like to order one for your child. Please note the deadline date on this form. Extra order forms are available in the school office.
Yes, we are very busy at SES. Thank you for your support day in and day out!
