Welcome to Pre-K! We would like to thank all the
parents for coming to our Parent/Teacher
Conferences. If you have any further questions
about your child's conference please contact your
child's teacher. We will start out our year with
the Theme "Welcome to School." We will be
reading a lot of books about starting school. We
will also be learning a lot about shapes, colors,
and numbers. Please remember to check your
child's folder each night, and talk to them about
their day at school. We are looking forward to a
fun school year! The Pre-K Team Kindergarten
is very happy to have another teacher, Ms.
Landgraf. She is looking forward to working with
our students and their families.   There will be
some changes this year in kindergarten. We will
be following the new Core Curriculum and using
the new Envision Math program.  We will be
sharing information about these programs at
conferences and by newsletters.   As we begin the
school year, we will be working on following the
rules of the school and learning to be a good
citizen at S.E.S. The SEFEL program (Social and
Emotional Foundations for Early Learning) will
provide strategies for adults and children to
encourage positive behaviors in children.  The
Judy Center  is leading the initiative to promote
this program.  Remember that the Judy Center, now
located near the kindergarten classes, is
wonderful asset to our school.  The Judy Center
enjoys having visitors! You will be hearing much
more about the Judy Center during the school
year.  The kindergarten team is looking forward
to a wonderful school year that is filled with
learning, exploration fun!
Second grade is going to be fun and challenging!
Be ready to enjoy learning! Everyone is welcome!
Please visit us anytime! Back to school night is
September 5th at 600. Prepare to learn new
things! In the first quarter we will become
scientists and learn about our communities and
maps in social studies! Time for change! We are
diving into the Common Core State Curriculum this
year! Stay tuned for more information! Each
student will be placed in a Literacy Block group
for directed reading instruction on their level!
This will begin on Monday September 17th! Math
is important! We will be focusing on a few math
skills this year that we intend to master! Look
for lots of subtraction, time and money! Be
careful to follow the rules! When students are
SOARing, they will earn Eagle Eggs!   Each day it
is important to come to school! Please make every
effort to be here when you are healthy!   Remember
---- students who SOARread every day, do their
homework, come to school prepared and treat
others the way they want to be treated!
Welcome to First Grade! We will be working on
establishing routines in order to make the
transition into 1st grade smooth. Homework will
begin around mid-September. As the time

Good-bye Summer, Hello School! Spectacular
September Welcome third grade students and
parents! We were glad to meet you at the Back to
School Meet and Greet and are geared up for a
productive and positive academic year! We look
forward to working with our third grade parents
through the weekly homework for reading that is
distributed to our students every Monday. This
assignment is based on third grade skills, and
students are asked to return the completed
assignment on Friday. Below, you will find some
helpful hints and strategies that will help you
as a parent, halt the homework battle for the
2012- 2013 school year. Schedule it- Set a
homework time and stick to it. Erase it- Cut
back on after school/ evening activities that
interfere with homework. (just dropping one will
lighten the load and give less headaches) Dont
just do it- When you see mistakes in your
childs homework, provide coaching and guidance,
but dont simply give the answers. This will help
the teachers get a realistic picture of your
childs skills and how well he/she understands
the material. Break it- Break homework into
manageable chunks by building in breaks such as-
walking the dog, eating dinner, or playing
Get help with it- A quick call to another
classmate to discuss an assignment may be useful-
especially when you are confused. If your child
seems to need excessive help, talk with the
teacher about getting extra help in class.  
In math, a primary focus is on students knowing
their basic addition facts, and later their
multiplication facts, by heart so that they can
apply that knowledge to real life problem
solving. Students' foundation of basic facts
will help them in lifelong learning as they grow
in the years ahead. The Time for Kids
newspaper is a valuable tool that enhances our
classroom instruction for science and social
studies instruction. By reading this news
regularly, students are able to connect current
events and scientific information to their
classroom studies. Thank you for sending in the
5 subscription fee that covers the entire school
year for this publication. We look forward to
sharing more about our third grade instructional
program on Wednesday, September 5th, at 600 p.m.
at the Back to School Night. Please feel free
to contact the third grade teachers during school
hours if you have any questions or
concerns.   -Mrs. Bildstein, Mrs. Leventhal and

Health Room
Welcome back to another great year at SES! Start
the year off right with habits that make the
mornings problem free.  Pack lunches and choose
clothing the night before.  Don't forget the
saying "early to bed, early to rise".  It's
recommended that a child age 5-10 get 10-11 hours
of sleep a night.  A consistent bedtime routine
really helps to settle them in for the evening
(ex bath, book, bed). Don't forget our school
day begins at 745am.  If your child arrives
after that time you must sign them in and they
will be marked tardy. Instruction starts at
that time too so you don't want your child to
miss the beginning of the school day.  Help them
to get a great start every day. Welcome
back to SES for another fantastic school year! I
am very excited to be developing our students'
artistic skills this year. We are going to be
creating fantastic, bold, colorful art while
learning about new artists and cultures from
around the world. Just as a reminder, please send
your child to school with an art shirt (any old
shirt that can get messy) in a zip lock bag so
that we may protect his/her clothing. You can
leave it at school so we can use it throughout
the year. Also, the art room welcomes any
donations, such as tissues, table wipes, and zip
lock bags. I hope you had an incredible summer
and are ready for an excellent school year. I
look forward to your visit to the art room. Thank
you, Cassie Hosler, SES Art
Any medication brought to school must be in the
original container for nonprescriptions, or the
pharmacist bottle for prescription medication.
These medications must also be accompanied by a
Physician Medication Form. Some doctors
offices have copies of these forms, or you may
ask the nurse in the health room for this form at
any time. A responsible adult must bring in the
medicine. This is a policy of the School Board
and the Health Department.   Parents please place
a change of clothes (T-shirt, shorts, underwear
socks) in your childs back pack. These will
really come in handy if for some reason your
child has accidentally messed their pants,
vomits, or gets wet. We do not have a supply of
clothes in the health room, so an extra set
tucked in the bottom of the backpack can really
save the day.   Please be sure to keep current
phone numbers on file, in the event of an
emergency. It is also important to have a
back-up plan for students to be picked up due
to illness or injury. The health room is active,
and it does not have availability to keep
students for the day, nor should a sick child be
sent home on the bus.   Head lice happens. Make
it a habit this new school year to check your
childs hair at least 2 times a week for signs of
head lice. This preventive tip is so worth the
Attention All PK K grade Parents, Have you
sent in a filled out Maryland State Lead
certificate on your child to the school? The
state legislature enacted a law requiring all
children who currently live, or have ever lived
in an at risk area, and who are entering a public
school in Queen Annes county in grades PK K to
show evidence of blood lead tests and the dates
the tests were done. Each child is to have a
filled out MD Blood Lead test certificate on file
at school by the end of September. If you have
any questions regarding this matter please
contact the Queen Annes Co. Health Dept. at
410-758-0720. You may also call us here at
school. Thank you for your support. Healthy
school year blessings, Mrs. Reilly, R.N. Mrs.

Math Matters
I hope everyone had a safe, healthy, and
enjoyable summer.  We are excited about the new
school year at SES.  The staff is pleased that we
will continue with our Literacy Block program
this year for grades 1 through 4.  Our MSA scores
and other testing results indicate that our
students are learning at SES and we are very
proud of them! We will continue to group
students according to their reading level,
monitor their progress every 8 weeks and switch
classes during our two reading blocks.  There
will be a literacy block for grades 1/2 from
8-9am daily and for grades 3/4 from 930-1030am
daily.  Based on various testing results and
professional teacher observations your child will
be placed in the appropriate Literacy Block for
Quarter 1.  We will begin on Monday, September
17th. As part of our Literacy Block, students
will be expected to read 20 minutes-4 nights per
week.  A "Reading Log" sheet will be sent home
with your child beginning Sept. 17th.  You will
receive a separate letter explaining our "Reading
Log" program.  If you have any questions,
please feel free to contact me at 410-438-3164. 
Thanks for all of your support in helping your
child to become a lifelong READER! Barbara
Thurber Reading Specialist
Queen Annes County has adopted the new math
standards called the Common Core State Standards.
These standards will serve as important
benchmarks to ensure that your child(ren)
receives high quality education and will be
well-prepared for college or a career. In order
to better meet these standards, we have a new
math series called enVision Math for grade K
through 5. This series emphasizes the new
content standards and the math standards of
practice. In the classroom, all students will
begin with a hands-on problem based learning
activity that introduces the skill and vocabulary
for the day. Next, there is a visual learning
bridge that helps students see a connection
between what they did with manipulatives to a
representation in pictures, numbers or words.
Then there are practice problems and word
problems daily. Finally, there is a check for
understanding and a follow up activity or center
to ensure mastery day by day of math topics.
Look for nightly math homework in all grades.
In K-2, you may receive a daily magazine that
your child completed in class. These colorful
sheets will explain the skill and show you how
students worked with numbers or concepts.
Homework will be directly related to the days
instruction. Additional parent support will be
available online soon! We are hoping to make math
exciting and relevant to your child. Each
grade level will emphasize several math skills
for mastery. You can help by making sure your
child talks about their math work each night,
does their homework and practices the facts that
their grade is responsible to learn. In
kindergarten, the focus is on recognizing numbers
and counting. In grade 1, students will learn to
add fluently. In grade 2, students focus on
subtracting and place value. Additionally they
will master time and money skills. In grade 3,
multiplication and beginning division are key
skills. In 4th grade, students will learn to
multiply multi-digit numbers and divide. In
addition, they will learn about fractions. By
grade 5, students will focus on fractional
operations, division and the areas of decimals
and fractions. Each month I will explain a
content domain through the grades (the WHAT of
Math) and a standard of mathematical practice
(the HOW of Math) for you. Look for parent
nights coming soon to SES! Also, feel free to
contact me with any questions that you have. Mrs.
Gloyd, your Math specialist

Welcome Back to the Media Center. I hope everyone
had an enjoyable summer. I am so excited to have
a "remodeled" media center. If you have not
stopped by to check it out, please do so at Back
to School night. The Summer Reading logs were
due Friday, August 31, 2012. A lot of students
participated in this summer challenge. Stop by
the bulletin board across from the CCC lab to
find your child's name on a bookworm. Thank you
parents for encouraging your child to read during
the summer. The students that participated and
returned their form will be celebrating their
accomplishment during their media time during the
week of September 10th. Your child will be
checking out books from our library during the
second full week of September. Please help your
child remember to return their book in one week.
Have a great school year and remember, "The One
Who Reads More, Is The One Who Learns More".
