Principal's Message


  We hope that you find this site an informative, useful place to find information about your child's education, our school's performance, upcoming events and ways to get involved here at SES. 

It's been a fun and busy year here at SES!  You can find our latest newsletter under the "News" section to see what is being communicated monthly to our families. This is just one of the ways in which we share current and upcoming information about your child's school.

On behalf of the staff here at Stanwood Elementary School, I want to tell you that your children are precious to us. We are working hard to help our students be respectful and productive citizens as well as academically prepared for continued success in school. Please let us know what we can do to better serve you and your child(ren).
