SSES is participating in every Evergreen Festival of the Arts category that is possible at the school level. We believe that the arts not only enriches our lives, but also helps us to improve our academic performance at school and beyond. All of our classes are performing in the spoken poetry, Orff, dance, and choir. SSES will be hosting our annual Festival Sharing on Wed. May 3 @9~all parents/caregivers are invited to attend. The Festival Hi-Lites concert will be held at GHS on Monday, May 8th @ 7. We are so proud of all of our students !! I am grateful to our SSES staff for their efforts to provide these wonderful opportunities for our students so that all are able to be immersed in the power, beauty, and language of the arts!
Math is hard work but it is so important! Math is all around us and it is cool to explore mathematical ideas in nature, music, and our other subject areas such as Social Studies and Science. At SSES, we love to stretch our brains and think critically about our learning. Have you had to solve a challenging Math problem lately? We do it every day at SSES. Math rocks!!
SSES celebrated Pink Shirt Day on April 12th by wearing a pink or colorful clothing item to recognize the importance of kindness. Please ask your child about this special event that we honor every year. At SSES, every day is Kindness Day and treating ourselves, others, and our environment with dignity, respect, and honor is a part of our everyday culture at our school. Even though we know how important it is, we still need to work hard every day to make this happen in our classrooms, our playground, our hallways, on the bus, riding home on our bikes, and at home. Have you said or done something kind today? Make it happen. Make a difference!!
Ms. Lewis' Kindergarten class challenged our school to participate in the Coffee Can Garbage Challenge to celebrate Earth Day. We all tried to bring our snack and lunch in a resusable, washable, container and to choose whole food items that could be composted. Our goal was to try not to have our total daily garbage exceed the volume of the coffee can. We should all try this challenge at home! Thank you Ms. Lewis and our Kinders for being such exemplary role models and making our world an even better place!!
