World Culture Day is coming up March 24 and we need You!

3/8/2023 10:43 am

Our  school's annual World Culture Day event is coming up in a month's time. World Culture Day (WCD) is a parent led and PTA supported schoolwide that we have organized since 2016. WCD showcases the different countries represented in our school community and introduces students to different cultural practices with the goal of nurturing understanding, curiosity, tolerance, respect for each other and for people who come from different countries and/or have different cultural practices than our own. 


Over the years, we have had a combination of parent/family presenters and embassy partners who present to all students during the course of a school day, sharing art, music, clothing, artifacts, food, geography, language, and other aspects of their countries and cultures. 


We invite volunteers to sign up via this SignUp Genius. If you're new to SCES and/or would like to find out more about the event, please email


And, if you, or someone you know, would be interested in sponsoring the event, please check out sponsorship details towards the bottom of the PTA Post and reach out to with any questions. Thank you SCES community!

A huge thanks to Dara Goldberg, Amanda and Rob Hill, Tony Irish, John Kent, Vero Elizalde McCartt, Elisabeth Oppenheimer, Jolyn Russell, and incoming K parent Lauren (whose last name I didn’t catch, but how amazing is that? Not even at school yet and already at work!) for power washing and painting.

It looks incredible! So thankful for the willingness of this community to get their hands dirty.

Final Lost & Found of the 2021-2022 School Year

6/29/2022 2:30 pm

Links to photos:

The Lost & Found is outside under the breezeway at SCES from now (Wednesday, June 29) until Friday, July 1 around 4 PM. 

I tried to hang all items with zippers (coats, raincoats, light jackets) on the rack but ran out of space so a few lightweight hoodies with zippers are on the ground. 
These items will be donated on Friday after 4 PM. If you see something that belongs to you but can't make it to school in the next three days, let me know and we can put it aside in the PTA closet and get it to you at a later date.
