Welcome to Shugart Elementary
Skyward Family Access
We were so excited to meet so many parents during Shugart's Family Night. The parents were able to learn valuable information about Skyward Family Access. Our teachers' mission was to introduce parents to this exciting web-based component of Skyward. It will enable parents to take a proactive role in their student's education. Look for more information about Skyward in our weekly Cowboy Chronicles.
Parents as Partners
Parents, have your heard about the GISD STEAM Challenges? STEAM Challenges are collaborative projects that allow students to gain hands on experiences in the following subjects: Science,Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Find out more information about STEAM Challenges by visiting our Activities pages.
Fall Picture Day is Tuesday, October 28th. Students may wear special clothes for their portraits, but the clothes must be school appropriate. Parents can order pictures either by bringing back the envelope that will go home next week in their child's Cowboy Chronicles, or by ordering online at mylifetouch.com using Picture Day ID LD604281Q0.
The Votes Have Been Tallied
Each year, Shugart sponsors a pumpkin decorating contest. Students and staff are encouraged to showcase their creative skills by decorating a pumpkin. We vote by bringing loose change for the pumpkin we like most. The money raised is used to help fund our fifth graders annual Pine Cove trip.
The winner of our annual Pumpkin Contest is...Ms. Joseph's class! Congratulations! Second place was Ms. Nix's class, and third place was Jenkins/Ryan's class!
