Principal's Message


   All of the staff here at SES are wishing you all a fun and relaxing summer.  We hope you enjoy the extra time with your children, find some time to play outside and enjoy this beautiful area we all get to call home.  

We'll be looking forward to seeing you in the fall.  Our school office will open again on August 15th.  Class placement letters and school information will be sent home via US mail in August as well.  PTO is purchasing all school supplies for students for the 2019-20 school year, thanks to the generosity of our community at this year's auction.

Our Back-To-School Open House will be on September 3rd from 4:00 - 5:30.  This will give your child a chance to see his/her classroom, meet the teacher, and some time to reconnect with their classmates on the playground while enjoying an ice cream treat from PTO. The first day of school will be Wednesday, September 4th.

Have a wonderful summer, rest up, and we'll see you in the fall.  Thank you for a truly amazing year and for sharing your precious children with us.
