2020/2021 School Reopening Plans
The first day of school for all SES students will be August 5th, 2020.
Shelby Eastern Schools will be offering Online Registration beginning the 2018/2019 School Year. This will allow parents to fully enroll their child online without the hassle of multiple paper forms to fill out. For those that are unable to complete registration at home, each school will make accommodations and offer families the ability to perform registration in one of our computer labs. Finalized dates and more concrete details will be distributed soon. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Some children are born with an inner drive to keep trying over and over when they fail. Most children aren’t, though, and it is up to us to help them see that failing is actually the key to succeeding. Teaching our children the word YET is key. They may come to you and say, “I don’t know how to read” or “I can’t ride a 2 wheeler” or “I can’t get good grades.” We need to teach them to add the word “yet” to the end of those sentences so they start to realize that these things take time and with the right mindset, they will happen!
Sit down with your child and list out things that they now do, that at one time they thought were hard. Have them tell you that with practice they learned to do hard things. They are able to do hard things! Using this type of thinking and dialogue around our children will teach them that by trying, failing and learning from their mistakes, they will succeed at doing hard things.
The Department of Computer & Information Technology at Purdue University was awarded a GenCyber grant, funded by the NSA and NSF, to host a free, residential cybersecurity camp for 40 girls.

At Waldron Jr. Sr. High School, students recently finished the winter testing portion of the NWEA Assessments. The results from this most recent assessment are compared to the results we obtained from the Fall to help us identify our students relative Strengths and Weaknesses. Our teachers are busy analyzing data results from a wide variety of reports NWEA makes available to them. Teachers use this data to make informed instructional decisions moving forward. Students are made aware of their areas of strengths as well as their areas of need. Putting all of this together means the teachers and students work together to set goals for success.
At Waldron, it is a point of emphasis to assess often and catch learning needs early on in the educational process. We believe this provides a better path towards student success.
Third and fourth grade students at SES have received Chromebooks to use in the classroom! Students as well as teachers are giving them great reviews!
