October 12, 2022 - Upcoming Events

Greetings Sandpiper Families - Happy Wednesday!  Some reminders and some new info! Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for being a part of our supportive community!

 

Report Cards will be sent home for Tracks 1, 2, and 3 on Friday, October 14th. Parents - please note that some standards do not have level 4 opportunities and that a level 3 on the report card means your child is showing mastery of the indicated standard (which is awesome!). If you have any questions about level 4s, please reach out to your child's teacher or to me. Thank you!

 

Friday October 14th: PTA-sponsored outdoor movie night showing Hotel Transylvania 3! Move will begin at 7pm - Blankets and Chairs are encouraged and families are welcomed to bring their own food/drinks. Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult (older siblings do not count) - this is for everyone’s safety as school or PTA supervision is not provided. Thank you!

 

Friday October 21st: Fall Picture Day for Tracks 1 and 3!  Picture package information is here (Track 1 and 3 Picture Packages.pdf ) and will also be coming home next week - stay tuned!

Monday, October 31st: If your family celebrates Halloween - I hope the weekend before and this day are awesome!
