Steere Farm Elementary School
And we're back!!! We've had a great first few days back at school! It's been wonderful having everyone here in person for sure, and we are looking forward to a great school year full of exciting learning experiences! Our home/school connection is a very important part of educational success for students, and we are all partners working toward the same goal. It's going to be a great year!
Regarding our SFE Website, most of the pages are out of date and are under construction. Please be patient as we work to bring you a user friendly and updated website. In the meantime, please continue to read my Weekly Updates that are sent out each Friday afternoon. If you are NOT receiving my Updates, please let me know. Thank you!
Safety is a Top Priority! Steere Farm will continue to stay vigilant with regards to school safety each and every day. We will continue our fire and lockdown drills, we will continue to check identification of all who enter our school.
The Importance of Attendance School attendance is super important to the academic achievement of our students. The school year is 180 days, and if a student is absent 18 days, he or she has missed 10% of the school year! That's a lot of time! That's 18 days of missed instruction, hands-on experience, and important discussion about learning. Absences should be used for illnesses, which are inevitable. While family vacations are great fun, missing school immediately puts students behind. Please plan vacations for times when school is not in session - this will help our kiddos to stay on track!
What do we mean by Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn? These are our school rules. We are a Positive Behaviors and Instructional Supports (PBIS) school, and we work to highlight positive behaviors in order to change negative behaviors. Our students earn SuperStar tickets throughout the various areas of the school, and they can use those tickets to "purchase" small items or activities each week. There is a home matrix as well, so that our families can use these same structures in the home.
Wright's Farm Wright's Farm has been our business partner for 23 years, and we are so grateful and appreciative for all they do for our students and staff! Our greatest thanks to Wright's Farm for so many years of support!
