Sandburg Answers Tough Thanksgiving Questions

Nov 26, 2018   WICS-TV visited Sandburg to ask our students some “tough Thanksgiving questions.”  Here are their answers.  

Sandburg: Every Minute Counts

Nov 19, 2018 It’s important that every child gets the most out of each day of learning at school.  One way we strive toward this goal is by providing continuous learning from 9:00 - 3:30 each and every day.  You can help!  ~ Please make sure your child is on time to school.  Learning begins at 9:00.  If your child is late for school, not only has he missed learning, but his late arrival will interrupt learning for an entire class of students.

A child who spends his entire elementary career at Sandburg is here 6 years.   This year we have 286 students. $22,000 (annual expenses) x 6 (years) / 286 (students) = $461. READ MORE
