Mrs. Prater’s third-grade students at EEI participated in Election Day by choosing a new class symbol. Students learned about a variety of animals and their traits. They campaigned for the best candidate that most closely represented our classmates. We elected a bottle-nosed dolphin due to its intelligence, helpfulness and playfulnesses, just like our class!

The Sheridan School District is proud to honor our veterans with Veterans Day parades on Thursday, Nov. 11 in both Sheridan and East End. Any veterans who wish to participate are encouraged to do so. The parades will pass by each SSD campus so all students will have an opportunity to honor those who have served our country. The Sheridan parade will begin at 9:00 a.m. with line-up of veterans beginning at 8:45 a.m. at the SES car line off Skyline Drive. The Sheridan parade route is shown as an attachment. In East End, the parade will begin at approximately 8:40 a.m. at EEM immediately following a Veterans Day breakfast that will be held from 8:00-8:30 in the EEM cafeteria. Veterans who choose to participate in the parade are not required to attend the breakfast, but we would love for you to join us. At East End Middle School, the parade will start on the dirt road beside EEM and continue through the circle in front of the building. The parade route will continue on to EEE. Participants will turn on Chevy Road and go through the car line in front of EEE and then downLearning Lane to EEI. At the end of the parade, participants will exit on SawmillRoad. The Sheridan School District encourages community members to line public streets in both communities and show your support of our veterans. If members of the community choose to observe the parade from the district’s campus properties, we request that you do so only in designated areas due to safety reasons.
