Principal's Message to Families, 4/24/23


Sanford Creek Families, 

Thank you to everyone who came out to support our third graders and Songbirds Chorus last week!  A very huge shout-out for our music teacher, Ms. Stanton and all the specialists who put on another amazing show! Also, thank you to all who bought concessions and/or made a donation for the SCE music program.  $800 was raised! 


We are so excited for the Spring Carnival and hope to see you and your family on Saturday, April 29 from 11-3pm.  Lastly, this week, we are celebrating our Speech Pathologists: Sherri Bosely and Whitney Todd and our front office administrative assistants: Alicia Matthews, Lyndi Malarchuk and Maria Moncayo. All of these ladies are phenomenal in serving students, staff and SCE families. 

Have a great week! 

Tiffany Rich, Principal
