Shady Grove Families,
We are all about these sharks here at SGE with our Big Kahuna Fundraiser, and appreciate your participation! Now that we are up and running, I want to clarify a few things with the process. Click on headline above to access info.
We need parents to help make Shady Grove Elementary the BEST it can be! See flyer for details... Meetings are the 4th Wednesday of every month, 5:30pm in the Shady Grove Elementary Library.
An informational meeting for parents about the GT program will be held March 3rd at Bertram Elementary Library, 5:30 pm & March 4th at Shady Grove Elementary Library, 5:30 pm. (It is NOT a meeting for parents whose students already attend the GT program)
In January, we partnered with the Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center to bring us a great program called Play It Safe. The program is “research-based, age appropriate child abuse prevention information for Kindergarten through high school age students.” The interactive Play it Safe curriculum helps children recognize abusive behavior, and provides tools children can use to be safe. The staff at HCCAC does a fabulous job presenting to our students!
Michael Finklea, author of several children's books, was kind enough to visit our campus this week. He spoke to 1st & 2nd graders about "Never Giving Up"! The students were encouraged to be diligent in their studies and inspired to be future authors! We appreciate Mr. Finklea donating his time & resources to help motivate our students!
We are so proud of our Shady Grove students and their acts of service! We spent MLK Jr. day celebrating through service. Our acts of service included making friendship cards and quilts for our local nursing homes, collecting and donating snacks for our local fire department, picking up trash around our own campus and giving to the Humane Society!
