A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome back to another great start of the school year. We will be posting as much information as possible on our webpage so please visit often for updates. We will be using Schoology this year for parents to monitor their child’s grades and other important information. Log-in information coming home soon and we plan to offer assistance if needed during our Parent/Teacher Conferences on 10-16. Some teachers are using an app called SeeSaw which allows you to follow your child’s work online. If you have received information from your child’s teacher, please check it out.
We had another successful year with our Smarter Balance scores. Great Job Students! We will continue to provide Title I services this year including an additional .5 Title I Reading Teacher.
Attendance is extremely important for each child. Batman was here the last week of August to talk to our students about attendance. Please send a parent note or doctor’s excuse for any days your child is absent from school.
I encourage you to email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call, (304) 348-1961 if you have any questions or concerns.
Dr. David Agnew, Principal

September 12, 2017!
Schoology is designed to enhance connectivity and communication with KCS, your child’s school, teachers and to view student’s progress. Please read this important information in your child’s folder!
Batman visited our school and talked with our students about the importance of attendance. His message for our students was:
“You need me and I need you, so you’ve got to show up!”
Batman also left students with 4 Things to Remember:
- Never give up
- Always do the right thing
- Treat each other with respect
- Never be a bully
We had 28 students last year earn Distinguished on the Smarter Balance test from our third and fourth grade. We invited our now fifth grade students back this week for a visit so we could recognize their success as an entire school. I personally would like to congratulate each child for the hard work and success and a special thanks to each of their parents. They have set our future standards very high and we want to encourage our upcoming third and fourth grade students to meet the challenge and increase our number of Distinguished students for this school year.
Way to Go! Dr. Agnew
There was a lot of excitement and nervousness on the first day of school for students, parents and teachers! The first day went well as students found their classrooms and met their teachers for the 2017-2018 school year.
Sissonville Elementary would like to welcome our new teachers and staff. We hope everyone has a great year!
Teachers and staff are busy preparing for the first day of school!
