Color Wars…     Start the year off BRIGHT

One of the PTA’s biggest events that runs all year long is Color Wars.

The PTA is hoping to encourage a sense of community and camaraderie within the grades by assigning each grade a color for the year.  This team color will be used in various events throughout each marking period.  A final end of the year winner will be announced and celebrated at Fun Day.

Get ready for our Color War Kickoff, Spirit Day, on September 21st!  The students can wear their color and proudly represent their grade.  The color with the highest percentage of participation will receive 10 points for their team.  Points will be tracked in the main hallway where the students can keep an eye on their team’s total score.  There will be an opportunity to win points for almost everything the students are asked to participate in throughout the year.

Class Colors are:

Preschool – Yellow
3rd Grade – Red
4th Grade – Blue
5th Grade – Green

Want to help out?  Have an idea?  Join us at a PTA meeting!

Meetings are held on specific Thursday’s of each month at 5:30pm at the SRES Library.

NOTE:  If you are coming to help out, please make sure to sign in at the Main Office and leave your ID.
