Principal's Message to Families, 5/1/23


Sanford Creek Families, 

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the Spring Carnival on Saturday! It was a great success - the weather was perfect and much fun was had by all!  A very special thank you to our PTA chairperson, Jennifer Craig for organizing the event and to all the PTA volunteers who made the event possible!  It's no suprise that we are entering a busy time of year... Please stay connected with your child's teacher and the school via weekly family emails and texts for upcoming events and info. 

Tiffany Rich, Principal
