Back to School Letter

Exterior of Southeast Elementary School with Yellow Tint

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Hello and welcome back! Words cannot express the level of excitement and anticipation I have for this up and coming school year. The Southeast staff and I promise to work hard to ensure the best education possibilities are presented to your children. I believe that with hard work and dedication by the faculty and staff of Southeast School, as well as the continued commitment from you the parents, we will continue to present the students of Southeast School with great opportunities of education.

Wednesday, August 15 marks the first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year. We will assemble in the gym starting at 8:10 AM. Your child will find their classroom teacher holding up a yard stick with their name on it and line up behind them. At 8:30, I will welcome the group, introduce new staff, say the Pledge of Allegiance, and then dismiss the students to their classrooms. Parents will be asked to stay back to hear building and district updates from Mr. Ekstrom.

We take great pride in educating children and will continue to ensure the safety and continued success of all of our students. Please take a moment and review our Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures on our website. Together, with the assistance of all stakeholders, we can ensure that Southeast Elementary remains a great place for education.

Our staff looks forward to seeing you at the Unpack Your Backpack and Ice Cream Social on Tuesday, August 14 from 5:00-6:00 PM. Class lists will only be posted online this year. You will be able to see your homeroom teacher on Monday, August 6 after 12:00 PM.  If you have any problems with Campus Portal please email


Mr. Mark Ekstrom
