A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

agnew13

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, dagnew@mail.kana.k12.wv.us or call, (304) 348-1961 if you have any questions or concerns.

Dr. David Agnew, Principal

Honoring Our Veterans

First grade students and teachers planned and presented an assembly to honor our veterans.  Lacy Canter sang the National Anthem, SHS ROTC presented the Colors and first grade classes sang patriotic songs.  Also, our hallways were filled with art work to honor our Veterans.  Sissonville Elementary says, “Thank you for serving”.

History of the American Flag

Do you know the history of our flay, how to properly fold and dispose of the American flag and what the Pledge of the Allegiance means?   Along with his sons Mason and Brice, Mr. Evans came to our first grade classes to explain and demonstrate the importance of  our American Flag.

Weather Projects – Second Grade

Recently, Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Sissons’ classes studied various weather conditions.  Students chose one of the weather conditions and created a project to represent it.  See the projects below.

 

Pumpkin Characters

Pumpkins can turn into more that Jack-0-laterns!  Sissonville Elementary classrooms turned their pumpkins into their favorite character from a book they read in their classroom.  Take a look at their creations.

McTeacher Night and McDonalds

Sissonville Elementary teachers enjoyed “working” at Mcdonalds Thursday night and earned some money for our Playground fund.  Thank you teachers and community for supporting our school.  SES earned $559.98!  Way to go Eagles!

Distinguished Students 2017

 

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

First Day of School!

Welcome New Staff!

Sissonville Elementary would like to welcome our new teachers and staff.  We hope everyone has a great year!
