A Note from the Principal

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Sullivan Environmental Science Academy!  Our staff is thrilled to work with you in providing your child with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare him/her for a rigorous elementary school experience and a solid pathway to ensuring your child is college and career ready!


We strive to use the best instructional practices to support your child's learning as they master the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, the TEKS.  Daily instruction is based on student artifacts and data, which aids in student growth.  Our teachers and support staff work diligently towards the goal of ensuring that every child is reading at or above grade level by third grade.  This goal is achieved by providing a strong core English Language Arts and Reading foundation and providing targeted intervention as needed.  One of the many ways that you can support our work is by reading with your child every day.


We believe parent involvement is critical to continued success.  I encourage you to connect with your child's teacher on a regular basis.  You may do so by phone, during their scheduled conference time, or via e-mail.  You can access their e-mail by visiting our website’s staff directory.  


We also encourage you to volunteer in your child's classroom.  Volunteer information can be obtained from our Parent Liaison, Mrs. Lupita Cervantes.   I highly encourage you to look for ways you can get involved throughout the year! 


Communication is very important to us. Social Media and Class Dojo will be used to provide SESA families fast information.  Special bulletins/notes will also be sent home to remind you of special events.  Periodically, you may get a message through our automated phone calling system with updates and announcements.  Please keep our office aware of any changes in your child's contact information to ensure we have the most up to date information to contact you.


I am excited about the work ahead.  We believe that Sullivan Environmental Science Academy should be a warm and welcoming, kind, caring, fun and exciting place for our entire school community!  Should you have any questions regarding school activities or procedures, please feel free to contact me at 956-361-6880.


Together We WILL Succeed!
