Each May, the Grafton SEPAC is pleased to sponsor this prestigious award given to individuals who have made a significant contribution in enhancing the life of a student with special needs.
ANYONE in our community can nominate someone who goes “above and beyond” to support inclusion, ease daily transitions, keep the student safe, adapt the school curriculum, support their unique learning style or enhance the social aspect of a student with special needs. In the past 10 years, bus drivers, teachers, cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, specials teachers (media, art, P.E., music), those in support positions, students, and community employees have all been nominated.

We have just completed another month of school! Can you believe it? Time is going by very quickly as we continue to learn and grow together.
Today, we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday. We had D.E.A.R. times where we dropped everything and read. Students and staff also dressed as cats, in red and white, wore crazy tights and/or special hats. This was the first of our March Madness Days. Monday will be crazy hair day. Should weather affect this day, we will reschedule to a day later in the month.
As you know, we are finally getting more winter like weather. This means the parking lots have fewer spaces and the snow piles may be getting higher. This means we need to be extra cautious around the safety of all children.
In order to provide the safest school possible, I am asking for your help with the following:
Thank you for all you do to keep all children safe at SGES!
Now that we have entered the month of March, we look forward to meeting our newest Kindergarten families! For our current Kindergarten families, this was you just a year ago. Look at how much the children have grown! Kindergarten registration will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 5thand 6th. Please see our website for more information of when to attend. We will hold our Kindergarten Orientation Evening for parents of incoming K students on Thursday, March 7thfrom 6:00-7:00 pm.
Our students continue to amaze us. They have been learning so much. All of our students continue to learn and grow as writers, readers and mathematicians. I have seen science activities going on in classrooms with students showing me their colorful crystals. I have also seen self-portraits being drawn and colored for Square 1 Art. I can’t wait to see the final products.
Students in first grade have been working on long vowel words recognizing silent –e. They are applying what they have learned in their reading activities. Students have also been determining non-fiction and fiction books, learning what each type of book features. In math, students continue to learn place value, numeration, time and the value of coins.
We have also been fortunate to offer several before and after school enrichment activities. Students have been excited to come before and/or stay after school for these activities.
