SCE is supporting our local front line health care workers by 3D printing surgical face mask extenders. Having to wear masks all day tends to aggravate the ears, and wearing an extender relieves the pull of the elastic on one’s ears. SCE loves and appreciates each of our health care workers! Our 3D printer is a part of our technology and robotics program. Mrs. Jones is challenging her “Tinkercad” students to create an even better extender!
We will continue with our distance learning tomorrow. Packets are available for those parents/students that have previously contacted their teacher due to lack of internet access. The packets are for those students only. We highly encourage any and all assignments to be completed online as much as feasibly possible. The packets will be distributed every Friday in grade level labeled bins. The packet pick up location will be on the ramp by the pre-k doors on the car rider side of the ES. For work submission, there will be labeled grade level bins near the car rider entrance doors. If at all possible, we encourage you to take a picture of the work and submit it to your child’s teacher via email or other messaging platforms. Packets will be collected every Wednesday and Friday. Again, these packets are for students that have been having internet access issues. There are not enough packets for every student. If you are having internet access issues, please contact your child’s teacher. Thank you for your support as we continue our distance learning efforts. Be safe and go Wildcats!
New Update for Schley County Schools can be found at https://5il.co/eoq9 Saved as a pdf document in case you had trouble with previous post.
It has been a sad and historic day for our State and our County. As many of you already know, Governor Kemp has issued a directive for schools to remain closed for the rest of the academic year. I am disappointed that we didn’t get to finish what we started as a student body and as a faculty. Our students, our faculty, and our staff showed tremendous grit and determination this year. I was looking forward to the strong finish that we were poised to have in May. It almost feels like a “loss” that we didn’t get a chance to finish the "game". Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant once said, “Losing doesn’t make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder.” Students, you still have a lot to fight for!!! Fight to maintain the progress that you have made this year! Our teachers are working hard to make sure that you stay “in shape” these last few weeks. You can do so by completing your online assignments, following the guidance of your parents, reading daily, practicing math facts, and having fun learning something new each day. Champions aren't satisfied with getting to the top; that is the easy part. Champions are the ones who fight to stay on top! I challenge each of you to keep fighting the fight, stay safe, and stay "in shape." Coach John Wooden said it best, “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” Things definitely didn't turn out the way we expected this year, but we ARE going to make the best of this situation. Keep working hard and stay safe. I look forward to the time when we will be back together. Sincerely, Tee Reddish
From Coach Cheek concerning baseball shirt orders. For anyone who ordered baseball t-shirts- they are ready- And as soon as the restrictions placed by the Gov are lifted, we will post a day that everyone can come to the school and pick the shirts up- Or have someone pick them up for you. Thank you for your patience with this.
Thank each of you for your patience with our pictures and cookie dough fundraiser. I have emailed both companies and I am waiting on a response as to how goods will be delivered. We will be processing all cookie dough orders on Monday. It should take a few weeks for the product to arrive. You will all be updated as soon as more information is known. Again, thank you all for your patience during these uncertain times.
Schley County Schools will stay closed for the remainder of this school year per the Governor's executive order. Distance learning plans will continue starting Monday. We will notify you as more information comes available.
We are not only proud of our SCE students and their families, we are super proud of our teachers and how they always rise to the occasion! We have some of the best! Mrs Howell, an SCE 3rd grade teacher, did “drive by” visits with her students today! She held a sign out of her window saying, “We miss you!” ❤️ Thank you for going the extra mile, Mrs. Howell!
Per executive order, all Georgia schools will be closed for in person instruction through April 24th. Any further determinations for the remainder of the school year will be made before April 24th. The governor will give a state address at 8:00 tonight. We will update you as more information comes available.

SCE students are continuing their learning at home, and teachers are staying connected to them in various ways! These students were showing their teacher 3 ways to make the number “417” in honor of St. Patrick’s Day! Others read St. Patrick’s Day books, followed leprechaun directed drawings, and went on scavenger hunts and charted their findings! We ❤️ our students and families!
Schley County School System: Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020, meals will be prepared for children between the ages of 2 and 18.

Way to go, Ethan and Mrs. Mailhot! Please check your teacher’s Web page by clicking on Menu>Teacher Pages to see what fun learning activities they’ve posted! We miss our students and hope they’re staying safe and well!

Dear Parents and Community Members, Schley County Schools have been in close contact with our local health department and our local emergency response team members. In addition to CDC guidance, we will continue to take the necessary steps to disinfect our school and transportation areas. Yesterday, Governor Kemp asked schools to consider closing for 14 calendar days to limit the spread of Covid-19. While there are no confirmed cases in Schley County at this time, there are cases in nearby counties. Out of concern for our students’ well-being and to limit exposure, all schools will be closed from March 16 through March 27. All buildings and buses will be disinfected using our Ecovasive system. We would ask that all jackets, backpacks, and school items that travel from home to school be cleaned as well. All 1:1 devices were sent home with chargers to facilitate any at-home learning opportunities. All teacher pages will have relevant guidance, as well as a posting from your child’s teacher for accessible hours each day. This type of event is unchartered territory for our country and our community. I greatly appreciate the support we receive at all times, but I truly am thankful for the resources we have here. Please take the necessary precautions for your children, yourselves, and your community. Avoid large group gatherings at all costs so that this loss of instruction time will not be in vain. I pray for everyone’s health and safety during this uncertain time. Sincerely, Brian Hall Superintendent
We participated in an informational meeting this morning concerning the Covid-19 virus as well as other common illnesses. Be assured that SCE, SCMHS, & the Schley County School System is taking precautions in order to help prevent the spread of illness. Some of these precautions include the following: Hand sanitizer dispensers on buses, disinfecting of buses, repeated disinfecting of common surfaces in the classrooms/building, and we are monitoring daily absence trends. SCE could use your help! If your child has a temp of 100 or more, please keep them home. They must be fever free for 24 hours before they can come to school. Don't forget to provide a doctor's note for the excuse. If your child runs a fever at school, they will be sent home so that they can get the medical treatment needed for a smooth recovery and return to school. Thank you for your support as we strive to keep our students well while they are at school.
During the past few weeks in science, Mrs. Dukes’ 4th grade students have learned about sound and communication. One element of this objective is that students will be able to understand how everyday objects vibrate to produce sound. Students were given the assignment to create their own musical instruments using items they could recycle from home. Students presented and demonstrated their musical instruments to their class. What a fun way to incorporate science in multiple ways!
Reminder for those that are participating, the after school program begins tomorrow. If your student is a bus rider, there will be three buses transporting students home. Please be patient as we are going to get your students home as quickly, but SAFELY as possible.
Don’t forget that we will have pictures on Monday February 24th. We look forward to seeing some sharp dressed students!

3rd graders in Mrs. Waller's classroom have been studying animal adaptations in Science. After reading "What If You Had Animal Eyes", students chose an animal and took notes on the eyes being used as an adaptation. Students then conducted research using books off EPIC which is an online library of book collections and videos. To integrate writing, students collected information on the animal's habitat, their diet, and interesting facts about the animal. To tie all parts of the research together, students then accessed Book Creator from their individual laptops and created their own book. Everyone enjoyed making their books unique and sharing with their peers.
A big thanks to all the parents for their patience today at car riders, our staff for getting students safely to their rides/buses, and to our bus drivers for getting our students home safely in adverse conditions. A great job all the way around!
As we continue to monitor the current weather moving through our area, we anticipate a delayed dismissal for our buses beginning their afternoon routes. Current radar projections show a band of thunderstorms reaching us at our usual dismissal time. After this time it does look much lighter with only lingering precipitation. However, we will continue with car riders as scheduled. We ask for your patience at student pick up because it will no doubt be slowed as well. In addition, all after school activities are canceled for today. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we try to get everyone home safely.
Attention Parents and Guardians: Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will take the Georgia Milestones test the week of April 13 – 17. We ask that our students get plenty of rest and are as free of distractions as possible so that they can show this test who is boss! Thanks for your help!

In efforts to reinforce learned concepts in Science and Social Studies, students in Mrs. Waller's 3rd grade class participated in multiple hands-on opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge. In efforts to retain information throughout a Fossil unit in Science, students collected leaves around the school, and made trace fossils. Students were also provided the opportunity to become paleontologists for a day. They were given toothpicks to use as tools. Then they were required to extract as many fossils as possible during a given time frame without breaking them. Throughout the activity, students realized extraction takes patience and ease in order to keep both your tool and fossil intact. Finally, students were assigned a Native American region. They were required to create a diorama that accurately portrayed the region. It was required to include examples of shelter, food, and other characteristics of the region. Students thoroughly enjoyed participating in the various activities.
We hope that all students, parents, and guardians had a wonderful break! Our faculty and staff are looking forward to seeing our students on Monday as we begin the second semester of school!

3rd grade students in Mrs. Waller's class just completed a Rocks and Minerals Science unit. To reinforce what was learned throughout the unit, students created the three types of rocks using Starburst candy. Students began by stacking three Starbursts together forming layers, or Sedimentary rock. Afterwards, students covered the layers in tinfoil and applied pressure which changed the shape and created a Metamorphic rock. Finally, students placed their rocks in a toaster oven. Once the rocks melted and cooled, they were able to see an example of what an Igneous rock looks like. Students enjoyed seeing the transformations of the different types of rocks and identifying the changes that occurred to their candy.
Our 3rd graders are excited to bring you their program tomorrow (Tuesday) night! The program will begin at 6:00 in the ES gym. We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night at 6:00!

After learning about how the baskets are made, what they’re made of, and the various daily uses for woven baskets in American Indian life, students wove their own baskets using yarn!
As an extension to learning multiplication, students in 3rd grade participated in a Multiplication Bakery activity. Several classrooms were transformed into bakery related stations which allowed students to demonstrate their knowledge on using multiplication strategies. Student stations were Cookie Tray Arrays with the use of Cookie Crisps, Donut Arrays using Cheerios, and then students were able to become bakers with a "You're the Baker" activity where students created arrays using graham crackers, icing, and candy. Students were engaged and had a yummy timed practicing multiplication.

Third grade students recently completed a novel study on the book Because of Winn-Dixie. Students in Mrs. Howell's class demonstrated their learning by writing an Amazon listing for the book. Students were required to include specific details about the book including the ages of children who might enjoy the book as well as the name of the publishing company. The students also wrote a novel summary and gave their favorite quote from the book. Students completed their Amazon listing by rating the story Because of Winn-Dixie and by recommending similar books for others to read.
Mrs. Waller's 3rd grade class recently completed the novel, Because of Winn Dixie. 3rd graders spent five weeks reading the realistic novel of which the main character, Opal, decided to throw a party after reading Gone with the Wind.

All car riders will be dropped off and picked up on the side loop. Paving was completed last year to create a longer roadway in order to pull cars off of highway 19. Parents are asked to follow the road down to the softball/ baseball field parking, circle the cones, and return to merge into the existing loop. For pick up, please have your car rider cards available. You will be given direction by the caller each afternoon and assigned a number for the position to pull to alongside the new wing. Each station will have a number to help give you directions as to where to stop. We do ask that you do not use the front drive of the school during the dismissal time and only use the front at arrival if you as a parent intend to park in the front parking lot and enter the building. Extra personnel will be on hand to help with this pattern. As always your patience and support is greatly appreciated.
The car rider loop will run as usual in the morning.
Our PreK teachers enjoyed the photo booth at their Open House last night! Don’t miss it! 📷 They’re located at the end of the new wing and the 4th and 5th grade wing!

Also, 5th grade parents, don’t forget your meeting in the lunchroom at 4:30!

Mr. Bishop's third grade class is learning about area and perimeter. Students used "Cheez-Its" to create various area models. Students worked with partners to calculate the area and perimeter and then recorded their findings. The class manipulated their rectangles to create models with the same area, but different perimeters. Students enjoyed the hands-on lesson and snack!

Students in Mrs. Hall’s second grade were treated to a special surprise Monday afternoon. Mrs. Jane Hobbs, and Mrs. Camee Hobbs came to help students decorate Christmas cookies. First, students were read the story, Tough Cookie, about a gingerbread cookie that became an ornament on a tree. Mrs. Hobbs explained to students that when she makes cookies, she uses her reading and math skills. Then each student was given a bag with needed supplies to decorate their own sugar cookies. Students had a great time decorating their cookies, but the best part was eating them and the extra icing!
