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

Learning New Educational APPs

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!
