Notes from Mr. Galvin
December 15, 2014
We are in the last week of school prior to winter break.
Here are my notes for the rest of this week and next:
Semester Tests: Since this is the last week of
the semester, we will be conducting semester tests for our high
school courses on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. We will also
run a 7-12th grade blocked semester test bell schedule with odd
testing periods on Wednesday and even testing periods on Thursday.
If you recall from past years, students having a cumulative grade
of 79% or had more than 4 absences for any class (or both) will
be required to take a semester test in that particular class. On
semester test days, we will run a modified open campus, where HS
students do not have to be at school until their first scheduled
semester on that day and may leave after their last scheduled semester
test. Our specific semester test policy is in the student handbook
if you need more details.
Winter Break: Friday is the end of the quarter/semester,
and winter break begins. School resumes on January 6th.
Early Dismissal: Friday is a 1:30 early dismissal
for winter break.
Tournament Champions: Congrats to our wrestlers
and coaches for winning the Lenox tournament last weekend. We had
9 of 14 wrestlers in the championship match. Congrats to Blake Bauer,
Brady Kyner, Jake Hunerdosse, Jacob Hoch, and Tate Van Dyne for
getting 1st in their weight class. Also congrats to Alex Mitchel,
Ty Schneider, TJ Dierking, and Nathan Jimenez for finishing 2nd
in their weight class.
Food Drive: The SEW Athletic Boosters are sponsoring
a Warren County Food Pantry night at the Tuesday, 12/16 home basketball
games - SEW vs. Wayne. Please bring non-perishable items to help
local families in need. This is an event of good will to help people
and is completely separate than any game admission fees charged
by the school. Please contact Kelly Henderson with any questions
(515.360.1841). All donations are appreciated, but we are told the
following items are currently most in need. Ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise,
salad dressings, sugar, flour, salt, pepper, jelly, spaghetti sauce,
Pop Tarts, can ham, can chicken can tuna, can beef, instant potatoes,
and vegetables such as mixed vegetables and peas (usually have plenty
of corn and green beans).
Dental Screening: Sarah Petersen from the I-Smiles
program will be at the primary and high school buildings on Tuesday,
December 16th to do screenings on kindergarten and 9th graders who
haven't turned in a completed dental form. Letters were mailed out
the week prior for parental permission. Contact the primary or high
school office if you need another one of these forms.
Basketball: Our JV and varsity boys host Orient
Macksburg tonight. On Tuesday, our JV boys and varsity girls and
boys host Wayne. On Friday, our varsity girls and boys host Corning.

On April 9, 2014, the Southeast Warren Jr-Sr High school students
had the opportunity to learn a real-life lesson without the tragedy
and risk. In cooperation with local law enforcement, fire departments
and rescue teams, this lesson was brought home to our students with
a mock accident resulting from driving under the influence. (More
Jr-Sr High Teacher Websites
The teachers at the Jr-Sr High school have websites for their classes,
including lesson plans and other information, to help give students
and parents easy access to information.
Links to their sites are on the right column of this page.
All links will open a new window, so to return to the SEW site,
simply close the window for the teacher site when you are done.
