Dear SIES families,

  • There is no school for students from November 23rd – 27th.  The office at SIES will be open on Monday, November 23rd.
  • Progress Reports were issued today, Friday, November20th.  Please check your child’s bookbag.
  • Plan ahead for the December 8th PTA meeting at 6:00 p.m.  Our chorus will perform and families will have an opportunity to visit the Scholastic Book Fair.
  • The last day of school before winter break is Friday, December 18th.  Classroom celebrations will be held on Thursday, December 17th.  Please contact your room parent if you would like to assist.

I hope that you will enjoy the holiday week ahead.  Amidst the traveling, shopping and feasting, my wish for all of us is that we take some time to slow down and remember all of those things that we are grateful for.  Stay safe and enjoy your time with family and friends!  - Susan King


Sullivan's Island Elementary School is located overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on beautiful I'on Avenue. The school serves 500 students who live on Sullivan's Island, Isles of Palms, Goat Island, and Dewees Island as well as students who are part of our partial magnet program. As a partial magnet focused on the coastal environment, we are dedicated to supporting students in being stewards of the Earth and environment. We are fortunate to have moved back to the island into our brand new state-of-the-art facility beginning in August 2014. 

Our Vision Statement:
To create inquiry based learners equipped with the skills to explore and contribute as stewards of the Earth and environment.
