Every Minute Counts at Sandburg

Aug 21, 2019 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.

Thank You for Helping Make it a Great Year at Sandburg!

May 27, 2019 It is hard to believe that I am writing the last issue of Sandburg Sayings for the school year.  The staff at Sandburg is very proud of our boys and girls.  We have seen wonderful progress  this year.   With our staff members, our parents, the PTC, volunteers, business partners, and the community, we have proven that working together we can do great things for our boys and girls.

Sandburg READS this Summer!

May 27, 2019 Research has shown that children who do not read regularly over the summer vacation come back to school in the fall being a poorer reader than they were when they left school the previous year.  It’s sad, but true.  No one wants their children to do worse next year than they did this year.  To help you help your child, every Sandburg student will receive at least two books to bring home with them for summer reading.

Sandburg's Math Olympics

May 27, 2019 Students who are going into grades 2 - 5 next will be bringing home a set of flashcards next week. Please work with your child throughout the summer to memorize the basic math facts.  All students in those grades will take a math fact test the first week of school.  You might have your child practice in a test format by clicking the button on the Sandburg homepage that says, “Practice Your Math Facts.

Sandburg: Thinking About Next Year

Apr 10, 2019 It’s amazing to think that we have less than eight weeks of school remaining in this  school year. These next weeks are crucial!  Please continue to support your child’s education by maintaining high expectations for both academics and behavior. READ MORE
