The month of October is filled with fun activities and learning opportunities for our students. Expectations are still high for all stakeholders. We encourage everyone to continue to work to enhance teaching and learning at ESE. One area in which we are working intensively to improve is students’ reading abilities. By providing students with strategies to improve their reading such as building phonemic awareness, decoding words, expanding vocabulary, and increasing fluency we will create stronger readers. A second focus is teaching students how to cope with issues that affect our society such as bullying, illegal drugs, and sickness. Students will receive helpful tips and information that will positively influence their decision making. It is our mission to provide all students with an equitable education in a safe and positive environment.

Greeting Parents, I am Geraldine Ray, Parent Liaison bringing you greetings from ESE Parent Center for the 2018-2019 school year. I am very excited to begin this journey with you; working beside you so that you may become a partner in the educational process.

As your Parent Liaison, my goals are to motivate, empower, and assist you in any way to ensure student success. My schedule at East Sunflower Elementary is Monday, Wednesday, and alternate Fridays from 7:00 A. M.-4:00 P. M.

However, I will adjust my schedule to be available for you as needed. Remember, we have great resources in the Parent Center you can check out to help your child at home. So, with that said, remember, “ With us plus you, there’s nothing our students can’t do”! Looking forward to a great year! 

Geraldine Ray, Parent Liaison
