Southeast Elementary School has proudly served the students, families and community of Lebanon, Pennsylvania for over a half-century. Presently, over 500 four year-old kindergarten through fifth grade students are welcomed each day. Our student population reflects the diverse population from our neighborhoods and throughout the community. Capitalizing on this wealth of influence the faculty and students of Southeast maintain a tradition of learning success, and dedicate their efforts toward providing a school environment committed to academic excellence.Each day, students participate in a comprehensive core curriculum including literacy, math, writing, language arts, science and social studies instruction. In additional to these core classes, Southeast offers a variety of arts and wellness activities such as art, music, band, orchestra, chorus, library and physical education. Students at Southeast may also qualify for participation in after-school tutoring. For civic-minded students Southeast has a fifth and fourth grade Student Council. Southeast also engages in environmental education through the Southeast Edible Schoolyard, a volunteer led initiative that teaches students about organic farming and healthy eating.

Positive Behavior support
Southeast Elementary School continues to remain committed to implementing school-wide Positive Behavior Supports (PBS). The Positive Behavior Support team meets on a regular monthly basis to review the implementation of school-wide interventions and focus on methods to build resiliency in children. Data is tracked through office referrals to monitor behavior trends and areas of need.
In the classroom, PBS takes the form of reinforcing positive behavior through the use of teacher language, verbal reinforcement, and logical consequences. Southeast has a school-wide incentive system in place to reinforce students that are demonstrating positive behaviors. Students may earn additional privileges through stars on their positive behavior cards. Privileges include the use of our school store, self-manager badges, and monthly celebrations.
PTT – Parents and Teachers Together
The PTT is integral in orchestrating and funding student activities throughout the school year, such as:
- Field Trips
- Fall Fest
- Holiday Workshop
- Self Manager Activities
- School Store
- Field Day
- Movie and activity nights
The PTT accomplishes all of this through a small, but dedicated corps of volunteers who organize and carry out fundraisers to provide the resources for all of these activities.
These services provided by the PTT allow our students to experience things that the school could not otherwise afford.
The PTT is in need of members to help in these important endeavors. If you are interested in helping, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
