2nd and 4th Grade Christmas Program  

Please plan on joining us as our 2nd and 4th grades present "Swinging Christmas."  The concert will take place at Teays Valley Church of God located at 4430 Teays Valley Road on Monday, December 18th at 6:30.  It's the church that's located on the left up on the hill about one mile past STE on Teays Valley Rd. going toward St. Albans.   You won't want to miss this special Christmas show! The 2nd and 4th graders will need to report at 6:00.

Bad Weather Reminder 

It's that time of year, so please be sure to pay attention to news broadcasts and social media concerning early dismissals, delays, or closings.  In the event of weather emergencies that affect Scott Teays or the entire county, the School Messenger system will be activated and you will receive a phone call message and/or email.  It is critical that your phone number be updated in our computer system if you have recently changed numbers.   Call and speak with Kaylene or Lisa in the office (304) 757-7279 to update your phone number.   In the event of an early dismissal, your child's teacher will go by the early dismissal plan you determined at the beginning of the school year.  If you need to make changes to your child's early dismissal plan, contact your child's teacher today!  In the event of a school closing or delay, please do NOT call the school.  Our phone lines need to stay clear so emergency personnel can make contact if necessary.

Our Christmas luncheon will take place on Wednesday, December 20th and this special luncheon is reserved for guests of our 2nd and 3rd grade students.  Invitations/reservation forms will be coming home this week.  All reservations must be received by Monday, December 11th.

Christmas Parties  

As per STE traditions, our teachers like to reserve their classroom Christmas parties as a teacher/student party only.  This provides an opportunity to spend some quality time together before breaking for the holidays.  Parents, feel free to talk with your child's teacher if you would like to do a craft or holiday activity in your child's classroom.  You are always welcome!

Brunch with Santa

Keep watching for the photos from Saturday's Brunch with Santa on the Scott Teays Elementary PTO Facebook page.  They will be posted and available for free download soon.   Thank you, Mr. Sharp!  A big thank you to our teachers for serving and our PTO members for organizing this special holiday engagement.  

Community Service Project

To keep alive the Christmas spirit of giving, the 4th grade will continue to partner with the Davis Child Shelter, the Charleston location of the Children’s Home Society of WV.  They will be collecting the following new, unwrapped items until December 15:

Board Games                                        Activity Books

Card Games                                           Markers

Coloring Books/Crayons                     Drawing Paper, etc

Early Dismissal December 22nd 

We will have a 2 hour early dismissal on Friday, December 22nd, so that each school can hold their required Faculty Senate meeting in accordance with state policy.  We will follow the 2-hour early dismissal plan you provided your child’s teacher.  If your child needs to do something different, please let your child’s teacher know PRIOR to December 22nd.   We will dismiss at 12:17.

is The Season

Parents, we've entered the season of colds, flu, viruses and bugs!  Please keep your child home if they have thrown up or had a fever of 100 or higher during the past 24 hours.  Sending your child to school when they aren't completely well only helps spread the illness to others.  

Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award

Think your child's teacher deserves recognition??  Nominate them for the annual $3,500 Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award!  You can nominate online at through January 12, 2018.

Is your child missing a coat??  PLEASE stop by and check our lost and found! 


4th Grade Says Thank You!!

Fourth grade would like to thank everyone for the toiletry donations for the Davis Child Shelter.  Your donations are helping to make life better for children in need!

We’re Collecting Coats 

We will continue collecting gently used coats through Friday, December 8th.  Please wash and dry any coat you wish to donate prior to sending it to school.  Thank you!

STE firmly believes communication is key to school success.
