Congratulations to our Turkey Tie-Off Winners
We held our first annual turkey tie-off shoe tying contest on Tuesday, November 24th. It was a close race and everybody came with their game faces on. The boys and girls in room 13 worked hard to improve their skills over the months of October and November and a champion was crowned today! Congratulations to Suzy who finished in first place and Joyce who placed second! These two were fierce competitors and the final challenge was to tie Mrs. McElwain's shoes. It was close,and as the class cheered them on, Suzy came out victorious! Thank you to everyone for working hard to help your children learn this life skill!

Box Tops
Our school will again be collecting Box Tops for Education.  Over the past two years,  SES has raised over $6,000 by collecting them.  Every month, your child will bring home a sheet for collecting the box tops.  Just fill it up and send it back to school - it's that easy!  If you have any questions, please let me know!
