South Allegheny Elementary School (Grades K-5)
Welcome to South Allegheny Elementary School!
Dear SAE Students and Families,
Welcome to South Allegheny Elementary School! We strive to be a school characterized by high levels of teaching and learning, strong relationships based on mutual respect, a commitment to continuous improvement, and powerful community and family connections. I am extremely proud of our dedicated staff, supportive families, and superstar students.
Our amazing teachers work hard throughout the year to create innovative learning environments that foster curiosity and a growth mindset. At SAE, we seek to identify and address the unique needs of each child. Each day, our staff plan instructional activities that challenge learners to grow and achieve. In addition to comprehensive curricular offerings, our students and staff also practice GLAD expectations, where we teach and model what it means to Give respect, Lead others, Act appropriately, and Do our best.
Throughout the year, we endeavor to create an atmosphere where students feel welcomed and have fun at school. Our fantastic PTA collaborates with school administration and staff to provide experiences and memories that our students will not soon forget. SAE is a true school community!
We welcome the opportunity to partner with parents to ensure that our students grow and achieve. Kids never stop learning, and developing reading skills and habits will help them to become life-long learners. Reading with your child, whether you read to them or they read to you, is important for their development. We encourage families to set aside time each day for reading at home. Additionally, speaking with your child daily about their school experience will support their growth.
We are very excited about the 2023-24 school year. I personally want to thank our families for your continued support. I look forward to a long and rewarding relationship with all South Allegheny stakeholders. Let’s Go GLADS!
Mr. Michael Calvert
Director of Elementary Education/Principal
