SES Students Reach for the Stars!

During the month of February, students at SES engaged in a two-week reading challenge in parternership with Usborne Books. Students set a goal to read 100,000 minutes. During this time, students were collecting pledges from family and friends for their reading. Pledges collected allowed students the opportunity to go to a book fair to pick out books not only for them, but for their classroom as well! On February 26th, the school celebrated the attainmnet of their goal by welcoming in Stephanie Holman (Miss Stephanie) from our Ellettsville Public Library to engage students and staff in an interactive storytelling. Each grade had a role to play throughout the story. Following the storytelling, the top three readers (minutes read) were recognized in frnt of the school with medals for their achievement. While three students were recognized from each classroom, it took every student in the school to exceed the goal of 100,000 minutes read. to conclude the convocation, since the school exceeded their goal, Mr. Hopkins upheld his end of the deal with students by geting down on his knees and kissing a potbelly pig! It was wonderful to see students at SES work together toweards a common goal and have a lot of fn along the way!

Basketball Jim Jones Visits SES

Jim Basketball Jones

Students and staff recently attended a convocation from Jim “Basketball” Jones entitled, “Three Pointers for Life.” While Jim put on a great show with some amazing basketball skills, there was a deeper message he was able to deliver. Jim worked alongside the students and staff to explore the values of making good choices, respecting others, being responsible, and being safe. Students were encouraged to “own their effort.” This means they can have pride in their school and themselves, encourage others, and think before they act. Students and staff walked away with the ABCs of his presentation: Apply Kindness, Be Yourself, and Challenge Yourself. The students and staff had a great time singing, dancing, participating in some amazing basketball tricks, and most importantly, learning some great lifeskills along the way.
