  • Welcome

    Hello SSES Families,

    We are now moving into the new year with high expectations for your children. We believe in them and want them to continue to believe in themselves! The results of our growth in scores over the past two years has been amazing! Your children have shown that there can be no barriers to the heights they can reach if given the tools for success. Those tools are: your support of their educational journey, our instruction, and their inner motivation to learn. Our partnership with you will be invaluable to the success of your child!

    How can we help build that success?

    We have placed signs above all classroom doors that state: In this classroom, you will be loved, respected and safe! We feel that it is not enough to provide the best classroom instruction. We know that we must also build solid, trusting relationships with your children in order for them to be open to learn the information that we have to offer. 

    How can you help build that success?

    • The most important thing you can do is to tell your child each day how much you love them before they leave for school!

    • We need our students to be on time for school and ready to learn. We start our day with a morning meeting that enables your child to start the day on a positive note. Please have your child in their classroom and ready to learn by 7:30 a.m.

    • Our teachers need to communicate with you. We use DOJO, planners, email, phone calls, texts and conferences. Please let the teachers know which form works best for you. 

    • Please provide a place in your home in which your child can do their homework with the least amount of distractions. We are realistic and know that the house may be filled with noise from dinner cooking, washer/dryer running, small children playing, etc. A small, designated area with homework materials will let your child know that you value their time completing homework. 

    • Have your child ready to tell you at least one thing he/she learned in the school day. If they expect you to ask this question each day, they will listen more closely to have information ready for your discussion.


    Thank you,

    Kathy Keane
    Proud Principal of St. Stephens Elementary School
