Calendar of Events
Thurs 6/8: Year End Carnival in PM
Fri 6/9: Last Day of School 1/2 Day (AM Only)
Hello friends! The Sandyview staff was kind enough to give us a portion of this newsletter to express to you all our thanks and gratitude. All of your kindness, prayers, meals, and friendship have helped us immensely through all of our trials with Lynn's cancer. The fourth grade class choosing pink for their color at field day honoring those affected by cancer especially touched our hearts. Things are looking up now, with treatment over and healing beginning, but we couldn't have gotten to this point without our Sandyview family!
All our love and thanks,
The Kensingers - Lynn, JD, Grayson, and Mikaela
Summer Learning Packets:
In the past, students were given the opportunity to participate in The Sandyview Summer Challenge. This summer, Hamilton has decided to have a friendly competition across the elementary schools. Your student should have brought home a packet yesterday which was created to help your child practice skills that are
important for next year. Please encourage your student to take time each day over the summer to complete a page in the packet. At the end of the summer, please have your child return the completed packet and the elementary school with the highest participation will get to have an all-school BBQ!! Celebrating with a picnic is a GREAT way to kick-off the school year! If your student did not receive the packet, please contact your student’s teacher.
Thank you to everyone that contributed this year to make the year a success. If you have ideas for next year we would love to hear them!
Look for an opportunity on WISH to help with next year’s HawkWalk!
The final year-end report card will be mailed home on Friday, June 16. Do we have your current address> If not, please call the office at 269-751-5372 or email Mrs. Robbins at firstname.lastname@example.org
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Donation:
Thank you to everyone that brought in money for Hat Day on Wednesday.
