From Our Principal

Dear SEES families,

As this school year comes to an end, I would like to thank all of our students, families and staff for an amazing year.  It has been a delight watching all our students return to in-person learning, form new friendships, and grow in confidence and knowledge.  Our motto at SEES is 'Together We Soar' and that has certainly been true this year!

Be sure to encourage your children to read while they're on break.  Have a wonderful summer!

Eleanor Contreras
Principal
