September is Attendance Awareness Month! Share the News…..
New Study: Student Attendance Matters for Academic Performance: A state-by-state analysis of national testing data demonstrates that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, a result that holds true at every age, in every demographic group and in every state and city tested.
In fourth grade, the absentee students scored an average 12 points lower on the reading assessment than those with no absences — more than a full grade level on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) achievement scale. In eighth grade, absentee students scored an average 18 points lower on the math assessment.

Our attendance at Sebago Elementary is off to a great start. Keep up the good work!
Please join us on Thursday, September 11, 2014 from 6-7 pm for our SES Open House.
The first day of school for the 2014/2015 school year is Tuesday, September 2.
We hope everyone has a safe (but fun) summer! We will see you when school re-opens on Tuesday, September 2nd!
This attachment helps to demonstrate why reading aloud to your children is so helpful, especially during the summer months.
Don't forget to return all permission slips! Students who do not have permission slips will not be allowed to go on that day's field trip, even an all school field trip. Permission slips must be completely filled out in order for your child to go on any field trip. Phone calls cannot be accepted per Board policy.
Field Day has been postponed until Monday, June 16th.
Grandpal's Day starts at 11:30! We look forward to seeing you.
