📌Please check your students Friday Folder 


 📌Planners for how their week has gone.


This week: 

Next week we will have our spring pictures taken (3/9). We will have a class picture, everyone will have an individual and a cap and gown picture taken. Forms went home today in the Friday folders, so please ask your student for the form. It is highly recommended completing the photo information form that came home in the Friday Folders. The following week we will have proofs available for families to look over and purchase.


This Friday (3/10) we will be watching Hidden Figures as a grade level in honor of Women's History Month. It is rated PG, therefore we need signed permission slips for each student to watch. A permission slip was sent home today in Friday folders. Hidden Figures is an inspiring and true story that was made into a movie a few years ago. It centers around three women who all began their journey working for NASA. A segregated group of African American women hired to process the aeronautic data in the Space Race era.

Dress Code:

Recently, there were questions raised among our 6th grade class surrounding our school dress code and the need for staff and students to better understand the dress code expectations, so everyone can follow it in a fair and consistent manner. Administration listened to student input, made a few revisions, and shared the following with our staff. Today, we visited with all 6th grade students about this topic, so everyone knows the expectation. 

SCE Student Dress Code 

Dressing appropriately for all school functions is a way of showing Sand Creek Elementary school pride. Students, with guidance from their parents/guardians, understand it is their responsibility to dress comfortably, yet maintain proper grooming and dress in order to maintain a safe, productive, and professional learning environment. 


  • Students must wear clothing that covers their chest and torso area.

  • Students must wear pants, sweats, leggings, jeans, skirts, shorts, or dresses that are longer than mid-hand length when arms are by their side.

  • Clothing must cover undergarments (i.e. cover sports bra, bralette, underwear, boxers, etc). 

  • Students must wear shoes with hard soles at all times.  


  • Shoes with wheels built into the sole, or soft sole slippers

  • Clothing or wearable items depicting violent language or images, hate speech, profanity, drugs (including alcohol and tobacco), weapons, gang-related colors or signs, or obscenities of any kind

  • Hats, caps, bandanas, sweatshirt/jacket hoods, or sunglasses when in the building during the school day, except for designated activity days

  • Clothing that is see-through or that reveals undergarments 

  • Swimsuits

School administration and staff will consistently enforce dress code policies as outlined. Dress code will apply to all students.

Should a staff member find a student is in violation of our dress code policy, the staff member will be expected to address the concern individually and confidentially while ensuring the student’s safety and dignity is respected at all times. The following options will be presented to the student:

  1. Student will be asked to put on their own alternate clothing item to be worn for the remainder of the school day. 

  2. Student will be provided with temporary school issued clothing to be worn for the remainder of the school day.

  3. Student’s parents may be called to provide alternate clothing to be worn for the remainder of the school day.

Thank you for your support!

Happy Friday!! 


Wow! We have had some nice weather this week! Continue sending in those healthy snacks!


It is so hard to believe we are in the last full week of February!!  We will have a lot going on so please check our web pages regularly for updates. We try to communicate once a week, we know you get emails from the SCE office and your other students' teachers. We don't want to overwhelm everyone with tons of emails. 


👍Thank you to those who were able to make the Graduation Committee meeting last night. Please know we appreciate you. For those who could not make it, we will be sending out an email later next week with a brief summary and committee sign ups. We still have volunteer needs and the event will come quickly. The sign ups will close March 10th so the committees can get to work.


📌Next week:
On Thursday the 23rd the 6th grade teachers will have a team planning day. All three classrooms will have substitutes. This is a great opportunity for us to take a breath, review and dig into our iReady and subject assessments and to plan for the remainder of the year. We will be in the building as it is also spring picture day. Sixth graders will have their class picture and their cap and gown pictures taken at 10:30. The students will continue with regular classwork and homework on this day. Spring Student-Led Conferences are next Tuesday (21st) and Thursday (23rd).  Again, like fall, your student is preparing and practicing to present his/her learning to you. They must be here to do that. We will be available for support. There will be several families conferencing at the same time in the same room, as the 6th grade teachers share all of the students. We love to hear what impact our lessons have had with our students. It is a great observation assessment.  Each student will have 15 minutes to share and if that isn't enough time it all goes home and can continue there. 
🤔If you are wondering how they are doing we are sending tons of graded work home in your students' Friday folders. Please ask them for these items. Check their planner for how their days are going for the +/- system that earns them a Monday earned recess.



Coming up: 


*Spring Pic and Graduation cap and gown pics Feb. 23-10:30-11:30

*Student/Parent Conferences Feb 21 and 23 -The sign ups for conferences have been out for over a month and are now closed. Please contact your homeroom teacher to see if there are any available spots left.

Please see the SCE main web page for more information.
*On February 14th we will have A Party with a Purpose and we will be making Valentines for the tenants at Brookdale Center, just down the street. In sixth grade we do not do the Valentine boxes and exchanges, but make cards for others to make them feel loved and special. Please see the sign up for provided treats for the students.
*February 16th we will hold a parent meeting to set up committees to start preparing for 6th grade promotion/graduation on May 25th. We will meet in the 6th grade pod from 5:30 to 6:30. If you can not attend we will be sending more information for the opportunity to help out.

*There is no school on February 17th for Teacher Professional Development Day and no school on February 20th for President's Day. Please see my web page for more important dates.

Finally, CHECK IT OUT! Many students have mentioned that their parents never checked report cards. If this is the case I recommend checking them and reading the comments from each 6th grade teacher. This gives a full view of how your student is doing and where they are at moving closer into middle school. We have had a lot of absences that contribute to missing grades.

If a student is absent from school they can access the days lesson in Google Classroom.

They the work out the problems and record answers in their math workbook for the days they are learning at home. Assessments will be done online and they will not be in the workbook.  The students have their math notebook that will be a resource students may use throughout the year.

Tdap boosters are required for students entering 6th grade.  Please provide your student's proof of immunization to the front office. State non-compliance letters will be sent out the first week of September. Questions? Please contact your school nurse, Jeanine McCleery, [email protected]
