PK and Kindergarten RoundUp


For PreK, the child must be four years of age by August 15, 2015.  For Kindergarten, the child must be five years of age by August 15, 2015.

The student's legal guardian/ parent must complete the forms for registration at the school they wish to attend. Here is a list of what parents will need to bring to the registration.

For the PreK registration, parents will need to provide proof of income. Income verification documents include pay stubs, W-2 forms, Income Tax 2013, unemployment compensation, workman compensation documentation, pension stubs, retirement documentation, social security, veteran's benefits letter, child support, alimony documentation, SSI documentation, TANF documentation, foster care reimbursement, Public Assistance payment, TN Care verification.
The Voluntary PreK program is specifically funded for children in economically disadvantaged situations. However, we encourage everyone to apply even if they may not qualify as economically disadvantaged because occasionally there are student openings after the economically disadvantaged children are placed in the classes. We want to serve as many children in Loudon County as possible.

For PreK and K registration, parents will need to bring: 
state certified birth certificate 
(a common problem is that parents have the hospital birth certificate but not the state issued one), proof of residence in Loudon County (utility bill, renter's agreement or property tax notice with a matching guardian' s driver's license), proof of Social Security number and if the child is already 4 for PreK or 5 for K they will need to bring their immunization record and medical examination/physical papers. The medical exam/ physical papers can be obtained at their pediatrician's office. If the child was born in the state of TN, the birth certificate can be obtained from the Health Dept. or from the state website.There is usually some difficulty obtaining doctor appointment and birth certificates at the last minute, so we encourage parents to plan ahead for these needs.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the PreK Instructional Supervisor, Scott MacKintosh, at 458-5411 ext 1008 (mackintoshs@loudoncounty.org) or K-4 Instructional Supervisor, Jennifer Malone, at 458-5411X1028 (jm@loudoncounty.org).  


 
STAR WARS DAY

Science is Kool
4th Graders in Mrs. Lorenz's class studied scientific methodology and data collection through a Kool Aid experiment.  Using data collection and reasoning skills, they "perfected" their formulas and each group submitted a sample for a blind taste test with the Prinicpal and SRO officer.  You are sure to enjoy the pictures of the students as they tasted their own drinks early in the process.

The students completed drawings of these two types of cells where they specified each of the main organelles by labeling and coloring.
 
5th Grade
Students learned about character traits. We discussed that good writers include great details in their illustrations and writing.

Parents used those details to decide which selfie and paragraph matches their child's characteristics.
 
Guatemala



Mr. Marvin Feezell from SES, Mrs. Stacey Ridenour from LES, and FLMS student Mark Ridenour joined a team to travel to Guatemala at the end of June to train teachers and help students in an orphanage.  Money raised by Steekee students during the 2013-14 school year purchased school supplies and two wireless tablets to benefit this sister school in Comalapa, Guatemala.  Those items were delivered on the trip and are pictured in the slideshow below.  Director Norma Rodriguez was grateful to the point of tears to Steekee Elementary and Loudon County for their efforts to help her students.  If you scroll down the page you will see pictures of her visit to our school earlier this year to learn about American schools, in the process making a connection with SES students and teachers.  This partnership has allowed our students to make a positive impact on the world by helping others.  We are very proud of our Scouts and all Loudon County students and personnel who serve others in the classrooms, in their communities, and around the world.
