We ended our week with the Ices Social.

Learning Together
Playing Together


We welcomed 18 new students in grades 1-5 this year.  They moved from the following places:  Vermont, Florida, Tennessee, New York, Maine, Ohio, Texas and England.  Our current enrollment is 330 students.


This Friday, September 9 at 8:20 in the gym.  Ms. Limanek's class will be presenting.  You're always welcome to join us.


We have a new procedure for students who are going to be picked up in the afternoon. Students will come into the gym and be seated on the bleachers in a designated area to wait for you.  We want this time of day to be safe, respectful and sociable for parents and children.  


  • PTO News:  Please return the PTO Student Directory Form to the office by Friday, September 9, or email all of the information to Sara Teachout at sarateachout@gmail.com.  This is required every year in order for your family to be included in the PTO Student Directory.  Thank you!
  • Message from Diane Lepikko:  Birthday Book Club! Welcome to all the new and returning families!  I am happy to be co-facilitating the Birthday Book Club this year with Genevieve Thompson.  If you are not familiar with the program, here is what it is all about:  Parents/guardians will fill out the BBC form and donate money to purchase a book for the SES library in honor of their child's birthday.  Gen and I will come to school three times during the year for BBC celebrations.  Your student will come to the library during one of these designated times and pick out a book (pre-purchased by Mrs. Faith, our librarian).  We will put a sticker nameplate in the front cover of the book with your child's name, birthdate, and year donated.  This program, thanks to the generosity of the families at SES, has donated thousands of dollars worth of books each year (I am currently in my 11th year as co-chair).  So, print up those forms (link above) and send them in with a check made out to SES PTO.  If you send cash, please put it in an envelope with the form.  Thanks!
