Learning Community Day

March 8th students will be out of school as teachers/educators participate in a learning community day.

Speak Off on March 15th

Our 5th annual speech competition is underway! Every third grade student at SES is researching a career pathway and preparing a speech for his/her class based on that career.  One classroom winner will be chosen to move on to the second round.  On March 15th, these classroom winners will deliver their speech to the 2nd & 3rd grade, as well as compete for a runner up trophy and an overall champion trophy.  Join us for the excitement.  We wish all of our students good luck!

Internet Safety - Caution - Please Read

 

As some of you may have heard there is a new "challenge" called the "MoMo Challenge" that has recently surfaced and is being used to target children in a harmful way. "MoMo" is a disturbing character that has been placed in ads in children's videos on YouTube, Social Media, and inside the Whatsapp. In a nut shell the "MoMo Challenge" features a scary looking lady that challenges students/viewers to perform certain acts that would cause harm to them or others. The challenges start off small and then increase in severity. For example, watch a scary movie, harm your body, to even committing suicide. Please be aware, this challenge has been spotted embedded as ads in harmless children's YouTube videos. We have had a few students at SES talk about "MoMo" and want to make sure that all families are aware of the potential threat to their children. 

 

Please take a moment to view the linked article below. The article discusses what the challenge is, why are kids choosing to do the challenge, how parents can talk to their kids about the challenge, what parents should do, and more. Please take time to read over the article to better inform yourself on how we can help our students be safe.
