Mrs. Johnson, Shady Grove Elementary Counselor, uses a social emotional learning curriculum called Second Steps. Class lessons are taught weekly, or twice a month depending on the grade level. In addition to Second Steps, we also practice Kelso's Choices at our campus. Click above to learn more!
Shady Grove Elementary is celebrating BCISD school board member
Ross Behrens this month, and we can’t hide our appreciation for him!
One of his hobbies is hunting, so in honor of his visit we (students and staff)
will be dressing in camo for the day! Mr. Behrens will spend some time with us at Shady Grove on Thursday, January 17th. Welcome to Shady Grove
Shady Grove is proud to announce that Amanda Lastly is our 2018-19 Educator of the Year. Amanda has a helpful and supportive attitude that is contagious! As a team leader she works to problem solve to the benefit of everyone involved, and works hard to bring fun, excitement and love to her classroom and her students’ learning. She goes out of her way to show that she sees her class as a family, Lastly's Learners. In her 34 years as an educator, her fun and family approach to teaching has no doubt had a positive impact on her students and their families, but on all those she works with as well.
Congratulations Amanda! 💚
Each grade-level team has a service project planned to help our young students understand the purpose of honoring Martin Luther King Day:
- Pre-K will write letters for assisted living/nursing homes in Burnet (to deliver in January).
- Kinder will write cards for assisted living/nursing homes in Burnet (to deliver in February).
- First Grade will organize a can food drive.
- Second Grade will work in the garden, planting and cleaning up. These vegetables will go to LACare here in Burnet.
Stay tuned for updates on these projects!

SGE Pre-Kindergarten students have been learning about Community Helpers. They have learned job titles, job responsibilities and the tools that our Community Helpers use. The students have even done some serious thinking about what they want to be when they grow up.
Along with the help of the Public Works Departments at the City of Burnet, the Burnet Police Department, the Department of Public Safety, Smart Smiles Dentists, Herman Brown Public Library Staff, the Burnet Fire Department and Al Clawson Disposal Inc.; our PreK students have had several opportunities to see Community Helpers up-close. Students have talked with real life Community Helpers and have seen their equipment in action. Our partnership with the above mentioned agencies has brought our books and learning in the classroom to life!
