Principal's Message: Important Announcement
July 8, 2021
Hello Sandtown Family,
Welcome back Sandtown Jaguars! I am so excited to welcome you back to another excellent year of teaching and learning. As the summer winds down, our team of leaders, teachers, and support staff are preparing to welcome our scholars back to school! As we engage our parents and scholars over the next few weeks through various welcome back events, we anxiously await the return of our scholars!
● Upcoming Events:
6th Grade Summer Bridge, Open House, and First Days of School-Town Hall Sessions
Our school day will look and feel different. Most notably, we will welcome all of our scholars back to school for a structured in-person learning setting; our viewpoint and strategies for learning have improved. We have learned so much from the pandemic; our new norm has been reimagined! I am so thrilled about enrichment opportunities and academic growth goals we have set for our amazing scholars.
Over the next few weeks, information will be shared to prepare you for our return to school. It is recommended that all parents check the Summer and Back-to-School SMORE weekly, as well as the monthly Principal’s newsletters that are shared via SMORE and on our website. The SMORE will include key dates and events, as well as school-related information. Your engagement will ultimately lead to success for your scholar. Your active engagement this year is so very important to continuing our motto: Success for Every Student through Excellence! In advance, thank you for continuing to help us seek excellence in all that we do! Your advocacy is warranted and appreciated.
