Mr. Christopher Scarpine

Important Items:

To our SES Students and Families,

I want to let you know that you are all in the hearts and minds of everyone here at SES. I hope that you are doing well and staying healthy during this very concerning time. 90% of students’ belongings have picked up by families but there are still a few items that need to be picked up. Please contact the office to schedule a time for pick-up. Kindergarten Screening will take place by appointment on August 11th, 12th and 13th. If you have a student entering kindergarten at SES and have not received correspondence from us, please contact the office at your earliest convenience.

Please see the attached supply lists for each grade level. It is not our intention to create a hardship for our families with regard to our supply lists. If you are unable to purchase supplies for your student, we will ensure that every student has the supplies needed to be successful this school year!

To all students, please continue to keep your minds fresh by reviewing materials provided by your teachers. Also, use this time to investigate things that make you curious. For example, my daughters have always wanted to learn to play the piano, so using YouTube they have managed to teach themselves how to play a few songs and have then shared this with their friends via social media.

It’s so important to stay connected with your classmates during this time. Send someone a positive message, a fun picture or virtual hug. Let’s make sure this virus makes our SES family stronger and more connected!

**NOTE:  Any Changes to your child’s dismissal schedule must be made in WRITING prior to 11:00AM.  You may email the office staff at:  OR Office Fax number 592-3264

Please note the new signs being placed outside the playground here at SES

Please continue to visit my page as I will update weekly.

School Safety Improvements

In an effort to provide our students with the best safety and security, beginning February 1st we will require all visitors at SES to sign in and provide photo identification. Also, I’d like to remind our parents to please remain in the gym when picking up students at dismissal to ensure the dismissal process is as safe and secure as possible. These are simply additional steps in our effort to provided our students with the safest learning environment possible. ID notification

Dear Mr. Scarpine,

Please extend my thanks to your students for the beautiful valentines they made for our Valentines for Veterans program this year.

The valentines will be on their way to our soldiers overseas; who are protecting our freedom and that of other countries, and also to our local veterans through the VA clinic and American Legion posts. We hear from the recipients how touched they are to be thought of and to receive the kind, sweet messages from strangers who are thinking of them. There is no doubt that the valentines are meaningful and we’re grateful that you are a part of sharing a message of encouragement to the men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation.

It is my hope, that you will again next year, participate in the Valentines for Veterans Program and make a special card for a special soldier.
