    April is a very busy yet extremenly important month at South Effingham Elementary School. Along with spring break, many field trips are scheduled as well as the Georgia Milestones Assessment. It is of the utmost importance for you to check this month's specials calendar every single day. Because specials will be held differently during the Georgia Milestones, your child needs to wear his/her tennis shoes on April 20, 21, 25, 26, and 27. You will see this noted on the specials calendar so please print it and put it on the refrigerator as a quick visual reminder. Your child will not be allowed to call home for tennis shoes if he/she arrives at school and realizes that they have PE that day. Thanks in advance for being so diligent about this matter. In order to access the specials calendar for April, click the image below.
