Principal's Message

Hello SOEC families, 

Oh how I love this time of year in the elementary school. I love the excitement in the eyes of the children each and every day. I love hearing the laughter, the singing and the wonderful stories. It truly is the most wonderful time of year. 

We have had a wonderful month of November! We celebrated our students who were recognized for showing the Pawsitive Character trait of Perserverance and for being an Attendance Hero during our assemblies. 

Student Council had a successful “Boxes of Love” campaign. Thank you to our SOEC families for your generous donations and for helping our families less fortunate than us.  

Student Council will continue with their fundraising efforts to raise monies towards their Astrocamp Trip in February.  Starting in December Student Council will be hosting a Winter Wonderland Photo Extravanganza. SOEC students can get a picture with our own Sherman Oaks Tiger Snowman backdrop.  

December is a short but busy month here at Sherman Oaks. Very often our regular routines are disrupted with all the activities of the season. Please continue to make sure your children get enough sleep, are eating healthy, and are limiting their screen time.  Also, be sure to check out our calendar for upcoming school events. 

Mark your calendars for December 13 at 8:30 a.m and come join us for a fun morning of music and entertainment as our students present our Winter Wonderland Music program. All friends and family are invited to spend this special time with us. 

December’s Pawsitive character trait is KINDNESS.  What is kindness? Just ask our students and they will tell you that KINDNESS is” like a muscle, gotta work it, gotta hustle”. 

We wish each of you a wonderful winter break filled with family and friends and look forward to seeing you in the New Year! 

Winter Break is December 23 – January 10. School resumes on Monday, January 13, 2020.
