Message from the Principal
Greetings Saukville Elementary Students, Parents/Guardians, and
I would like to welcome all of you to the 2017-2018 school year. I hope everyone had an exciting summer and are all fired up for another great year at SES. Our mission is always to educate all students to their fullest potential in a safe, caring, and productive learning environment.
Once again our entire staff worked very hard this past summer to make sure your child is receiving the best education possible at SES. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher at any time with questions. The Saukville Parent Association (SPA) has also been meeting and setting their goals for the school year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the officers for their continual dedication to improving our school. Whether it is Winter Wonderland, High Interest Day, or the many Family Fun Nights, our students are constantly being provided with fun and exciting enrichment opportunities. Our officers this year are Kara Stasik (President), Nathan Olson (Vice President), Vanessa Marratt (Treasurer) and Carmen Goeden (Secretary). Please feel free to contact any of the officers for more information regarding SPA or how to get involved. They can all be contacted through the school website or the SPA Facebook page.
I would like to close by thanking all you, our parents and guardians for entrusting us with your most prized possessions for another year. We truly appreciate the honor of working with your children and look forward to working with all of you this school year. Please call the office anytime if you have questions, or feel free to e-mail any staff member with any questions you may have regarding your child.
Thank you, and as always, GO EAGLES!
