"Develop lifelong learners who value themselves and others, and contribute to their community in a successful, positive manner".
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I would like to welcome all of you to Sissonville Elementary School’s newly designed webpage and a new school year. We want to invite each of you to explore the virtual world of SES. We would appreciate any feedback you may have to increase parent involvement and the additions that you would like to see on this website. We hope to provide additional information via the internet such as PTO meeting notices, fund raisers.LSIC updates, etc. Please remember to check on your children’s progress with Engrade. If you need logon on information, please contact Dr. Agnew.
We anticipate another fantastic year and are excited about what the future holds. We look forward to each child making strides in reaching their individual goals and successes. We are working toward each child having an iPad and currently have class sets that can be shared so every child has an opportunity to use an iPad daily. We are focusing on collecting data through a variety of means so we may provide each child an optimal educational opportunity. Maximum student progress can only be attained when a joint effort between school, home, and child exists. For this reason, I want to encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns, I can be contacted via email at email@example.com. Our goal is to continue providing your child with exceptional learning experiences.
Dr. David Agnew, Principal
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!
Our first grade classrooms had a “Muffins for Mom” celebration on Monday, May 8th. The students in Mrs. Adcock’s and Ms. Toler’s classes sang songs and recited poems for their moms. In the library the children gave their moms gifts they had made and then enjoyed muffins, juice and milk.
Happy Mother’s Day!
The staff would like say, “Thank You” to all the parents for making it a special week! Each day the food was delicious! Again, thank you for an awesome week of food and gifts!
Dr. Seuss week was fill with fun, learning and creativity! Students and teachers wore their crazy socks, hats and wacky clothes throughout the week. Students created their favorite Dr. Seuss character with recyclable materials or legos and some created a new book cover for their favorite book! On Thursday students did creative writing in their classrooms with a Dr. Seuss prompt. And, the cooks served green eggs and ham!
After collaborating with teachers last week, Mr. Paul returned to SES on Valentine’s Day to teach teachers and students how to use some new APPs to enrich their curriculum. Fourth grade students wrote poems then presented them using an APP with a teleprompter and green screen. Third graders learned to create QR Readers using facts about presidents while second grade used Keynote to create a dialogue between two characters. Kindergarten and first grade used Puppet Edu to create movies tied to their current studies. Yes, learning is fun at SES!
Many students took the challenge to look 100 years old! Great job!
100 Day Projects were a big hit in the kindergarten classrooms!
Students who reached their Accelerated Reader’s goal first semester celebrated on January 12th with fun activities! The afternoon featured karoke, rock art, beads (bracelets, wind chimes, butterflies), bingo and milkshakes!
