Sesser-Valier Elementary School
Grateful to: School leader

I would like to give a special thanks to Sesser Valier's Elementary/Junior High School Principal Judy L. Logsdon. As you enter the schools front doors, it is her smile that will greet you. She takes her career, and responsibilities very seriously. She understands having high expectations for all is one key to closing the achievement gap between advantaged and less advantaged students. Mrs. Logsdon shows belief that a central part of being a great leader is cultivating leadership in others. Sesser teachers lead by example and instill this into our children. Parents can feel secure knowing there children are safe, and receiving the best education at Sesser Valier because they have a wonderful principal who cares!

Not every school earns a Federal Blue Ribbon School Award. They did. This award was in recognition for making improvements to the curriculum. Many of these changes were due to the school's participation as a demonstration school in the Illinois ASPIRE program. The Blue Ribbon Award is through the US Department of Education and is used to recognize school across the nation for high achievement and for improvement of educational programs.

Amount of homework: Just right

Homework is a minimum of 20 minutes, even if your child DOESNT have homework! That means, if your student finished homework at school, they still need to read a book for 15-20 minutes to develop a solid reading habit.
