    Dr. Hetzel visited SJE to read to some of the classes.  Every student was given a copy of the book to take home.  Thank you for this wonderful experience!

  • Trail Day at SJE!

    Students made bird feeders to hang along the nature trail as one of the activities for American Education Week.  Some fifth grade classes paired up with their reading buddy partners in second grade to make their bird feeders together.  Kindergartners and fourth graders are also shown working on their bird feeders.  Every class had an opportunity to join in on this environmentally friendly activity!

  • Remembering Our Veterans

    Ms. Sigley's first grade class learned about Veteran's Day and the military.  Then they wrote "Thank You" notes to veterans at the V.A. center.  Thank you for showing your gratitude!

  • Positive Principal Referral

    Congratulations to Nell Friend for her Positive Principal Referral!  Mrs. Shearer noticed Nell's compassion for another classmate when they choose partners in music.  Nell noticed that a classmate has a hard time with this, and she makes sure to be the first one to go up to the classmate and pair up.  Way to be a good friend Nell!  Kindness- pass it on!

  • Pumpkin Perfect!

    Ms. Horne's class did an experiment to see if a pumpkin would sink or float.  Then they cut the pumpkin apart, exploring the inside, and counting the seeds!

  • WVU Pumpkin Drop

    The Engineering Club made their way to WVU last week to participate in the annual Pumpkin Drop.  The students had a blast!  They had four entries in the Pumpkin drop.  While all four hit the intended target, their pumpkins did not survive the fall, but the students learned a lot about engineering principles in the process.  Students also took a tour of the student center and the WVU Athletic Museum.  Thank you to Mrs. Grantham and Mrs. Dinges for sponsoring the Engineering Club and making this possible!
