S.O.A.R. Focus of the Week: Let’s Be RESPECTFUL of our Earth!  As we come into the season of Spring,
let’s be mindful of the world we live in and help keep it clean and safe!  Some ideas are:
● Turn the water off as you are brushing your teeth to conserve water
● Use a real glass that you can wash instead of a plastic cup that fills up our landfills
● Throw your garbage away to keep our Earth safe and clean!

Very Important Person Day: VIP is Wednesday, May 2 . This is an opportunity for your child to invite one special adult in his or her life to visit his or her classroom and participate in learning with them. Unfortunately, the size of our classrooms and parking lots limits the number of VIPs we can handle in the building at one time. We will hold two VIP sessions:

KDG, 1st & 2nd: 9:30-10:15am
3rd & 4th: 10:30-11:15am

There is a 15 minute window between sessions to allow for parking lot spaces to become clear. There will be a table in the gym for VIPs to wait at if they are attending both VIP

Thank You Volunteers! This week may have been the official “National Volunteer Appreciation Week”, but we
certainly appreciate our volunteers every single day! Thank you for everything you do; whether it be donating food for Staff Appreciation, helping in the classrooms, volunteering for Christmas Workshop, Fun Night, and/or anything and everything in between. Thank you for making a positive impact on the students of Sandyview! “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” - Elizabeth Andrew
