Introducing Explorer Days! Starting October 9, Southeastern Elementary will be celebrating Explorer Days once a month. On Explorer Days students and staff are encouraged to show their Explorer pride by wearing their SES gear or school colors (Navy and Gold).

Explorer Days will be the first Friday of every month August-May, unless the first Friday falls during an HSE scheduled break.

2020-21 Explorer Days:

  • Oct 9
  • Nov 6
  • Dec 4
  • Jan 8
  • Feb 5
  • Mar 5
  • Apr 1
  • May 7

We look forward to seeing your Explorer Pride each month!

Lost and Found

The lost and found is located in the cafeteria. The front office is returning items that have names in them. If there is no name, items will not be kept long due to COVID. The office is asking for first and last names to be put in jackets, water bottles and lunch boxes.

A student has volunteered to help the office manage the Lost and Found. The student will provide the PTO with a weekly picture or video of the area to post in the Parent Facebook Group, the PTO Twitter and Instagram accounts and newsletter.

Lost and Found as of Oct. 1, 2020.

Box Tops for Education

The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school!

Over the past year, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label.

Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW and improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now.

The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online.

If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products.

Thanks for helping our school get what it needs!

PTO Angel Fund

In the fall of 2019, the PTO Executive Board, working closely with Mrs. Chastain, Mrs. Monkul and Mrs. Smith, determined it would be beneficial to create an Angel Fund to support those Southeastern students whose families may be going through a difficult time and are in need or may be financially less fortunate. The PTO views the Angel Fund as an extension of our dedicated efforts to assist Southeastern families who might not be able to fully afford the expenses of the wonderful activities and events our school has to offer.
