It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

The days are finally getting longer and the temperatures are warming up! We are learning a lot, and our students are Springing into the last part of the school year. As we all begin to think about our upcoming tests in the Spring (the SOLs), students and teachers agree that we all need to be lifelong learners. So whether it's math homework or just reading a fun book, learning to love learning is as important as studying for this week's quiz!! Happy Spring, everyone!

Spring is also the time when students begin to really show what they know. They've been learning all year and it's now starting to come together. The whole school is buzzing with activities that integrate all subject areas, and the kids are always up for a new challenge! Here's to a wonderful end of an awesome year here at SES!!
