School Community Provides Wonderful and Challenging Journey
Shades Cahaba Elementary School, Homewood, AL
Living and learning at Shades Cahaba Elementary School is a wonderful and challenging journey. Staff there know that the power of any program is through common language. When everyone speaks the same phrases, true understanding occurs. SCES developed the Shades Cahaba Way, standards by which the school lives and learns daily. The first five are typical school rules; the sixth is unique: Have fun, life is a gift! These statements influence learning as well as the social and disciplinary interactions in the school.
