We had a great week at SES and most classrooms began their reading group rotations. If your child’s class did not start reading groups this week, they will begin their rotations next week.
Next Thursday, October 5th, SES will host the Maryland Science Center Family Night. We would like to see ALL our SES students and families next week. The event begins at 5:30pm and will wrap up at 7:30pm. Families are not required to attend the entire time, please stop by when you are free. As a reminder, students must be accompanied by an adult. There will be eight stations for families to visit and each family will receive a passport to document the activities they have completed.
Enjoy your weekend! ~ Anthony J Esposito, Principal
