  • It's Readathon Time
    Monday, March 2 kicks off our annual Readathon, during which we celebrate the amazing reading going on at SES.  Our multicultural theme this spring centers on the country of India, so students' reading will be tracked in our hallways by the movement of hundreds of personalized Indian elephants. 
    * For K and 1st  graders, this means, each week, turning in a list of titles each student has read (alone or with someone), along with the student's name, class and an adult signature.  (Parents, they need your help.)  Click here to download a Read a Thon form to sign and return!
    *2nd-5th graders will accumulate kilometers for their elephants with AR quiz points.  We know we'll see a grand parade of pachyderms from March 2 thru May 29!
