SES Read-A-Thon Begins November 17th!

Our Second Annual Read-A-Thon kicks off Wednesday, November 17th. Last year was a lot of fun and we want to encourage participation throughout all grade levels and have an even more successful fundraiser this year. We invite all families to participate in this wonderful event that will promote literacy and a love of reading in addition to raising funds for SES. By holding a pledge-based event, our hope is that families will reach out to friends, neighbors, grandparents, co-workers…anyone who believes in SES’s mission and loves literacy!

2010-2011 PTSA Budget Approved

This year’s experiment not to hold an auction worked well. Our school community is wonderful! You supported the Read-a-thon, the Run/Walk for SES the “Think Green Give Green” request, and lots of smaller PTSA fundraisers, as well as fundraisers sponsored by the school and by individual teachers. PTSA has met our budget goals and can continue to provide the programs and field study scholarships that our school wants. To view the approved 2010-2011 budget please click on the following links:
