Principal's Message for Families, 5/16/2023


Good morning Sanford Creek Families, 

I hope everyone had a great weekend and a great Mother’s Day.  It's hard to believe that the Track 1 school year will be over in less than three weeks and '23–24 is right around the corner. You will notice that the important dates section below now contains important dates for the coming school year. We will do our very best to keep you informed of end/beginning of year events, opportunities and celebrations..  Speaking of opportunities... please check out the PTA section below for volunteer and PTA Board open positions for '23–24.  Our PTA has done a phenomenal job of helping the school celebrate students, involve parents and families with events, build relationships within the community, and fundraise to support all programs and teachers. We want to continue and build upon that momentum and need your help!  Please consider one of the opportunities and/or reach out to find more information about a particular role. We can’t do what we do without you!


Tiffany Rich
