Dear Southeast Elementary Families,
The staff and students are getting settled in at school. They are adjusting to new schedules and routines. I hope that your child is coming home excited about the new school year.
Our afterschool reading program, K-3rd, will start Sept. 12th. Contact Jamie Ball, coordinator, for more information at 396-8211. It is an outstanding reading program!
Mr. Renn, our music teacher, and his students will be marching in the homecoming parades this month at Cherokee, Weir, and McCune. He will be sending a note home soon with more details of when and where to meet for the parades. I hope your child is able to participate.
