June 5, 2017
The end of the 2016-17 school year is almost here, and the last day is Friday, June 16th! That day is an early release day with a 1:00 pm dismissal. We still have a few beloved celebrations and events, beginning this Wednesday with our spring music concert at 6:00 pm. There will be a dress rehearsal Wednesday at 1:30. Please come share in one of these performances as our students bring back musical memories of the Beatles and Elvis!
Our kindergarteners will celebrate their accomplishments on Monday, June 12th beginning at 6:00 pm in the gym. All are invited to come and celebrate this proud moment with the children and their families. Our grade 6 students will celebrate their SES experience on Tuesday, June 13th at 6:00 pm in the gym. We invite you to come and support these students as they celebrate the conclusion of their elementary education at SES. Students head out on Thursday, June 15th for one last field trip together as a class!
Our final awards assembly of the school year will take place on Wednesday, June 14th at 1:30 pm. All third marking period and end-of-the year awards will be given during the assembly.
Please remember to make sure your child READS during the summer months and then logs in all reading minutes on the Scholastic website. Please look for log-in instructions in your student’s backpacks or take home folders! Feel free to call the school office if you need the directions. The Scholastic Reading Challenge began in May and we are in the thick of the state competition. Our goal is to KEEP our Connecticut Reading Championship. We want to be THAT SCHOOL that wins the title TWO years in a row! In addition to retaining our championship, I will also keep a close eye on the reading done by each and every SES student over the summer months. Rest assured that “my SES readers” will be able to win some great prizes for their hard work.
Before I close this letter, I would like to give a huge Scotland Elementary School thank you to Mrs. Lucinda Marsalisi. Mrs. “M,” who stepped into our second grade when Ms. Lebeau was unable to complete the year due to illness, has been a wonderful addition to SES. Second grade students have truly enjoyed having her as their teacher. Students have achieved many milestones in these last few months and they are truly ready for third grade. Learning with Mrs. “M” has been a wonderful experience for our children. Thank you!
I hope everyone has a happy and safe summer! Thank you for all of your hard work and support this year making SES the wonderful place that it is for our children, staff, and Scotland community.
