Sandwich Central School
I think that it is safe to write...HAPPY SPRING! Thank you for the hard work you put into keeping your children in warm winter gear throughout this solid winter. I am happy to report that Mrs. Day and her new baby are doing well. We are also excited to welcome back Mrs. Adriance. Mrs. Brown did a wonderful job holding down the fort, but it is nice to see Alex back at the front desk.
By the time you read this newsletter, students in grades three through six will have finished the English Language Arts portion of the Smarter Balanced assessment.
Each child should be proud of their hard work and patience. We will take a short break and complete the math portion of the test when we return from spring recess.
I would like to take a minute to acknowledge some the special things that have happened at SCS recently. First, I want to commend Mrs. Ryan, Mrs. Morton, Mr. Chapman, the seven parent chaperones and the Sixth Graders on a wonderful trip to Washington, D.C. Every year this four day adventure excites, entertains and exhausts us all. This year was no exception. Second, I want to recognize the Sixth Grade and Upper Multiage students for their participation in this week’s Celebration of Learning at the Inter-Lakes School Board’s monthly meeting. It was nice to see proud students sharing their work with the greater community. Lastly, I want to recognize the Astrology Evening that took place here at SCS on Wednesday. This collaborative effort between SCS and ILES originated with Dan Reidy and Juli Hird (both ILES 5th grade teachers and Sandwich residents). Working alongside our own Mrs. Hoag and Mr. Chapman they brought the New Hampshire Astrological Association to SCS for an evening of stargazing and education. The event was well attended by both ILES and SCS families, and last that I heard students were still looking through telescopes at 9:30 pm. These examples of extra effort are what makes Inter-Lakes School District special, and makes me proud of our little school community.
Next week is a busy week for us all. Mr. Whitney and Mrs. Hoefs are preparing for the annual SCS Spring Concert. I look forward to seeing all of you onWednesday evening April 19 at 6:30 p.m. I would also like to invite friends and families to the Jump 4 Life assembly on Tuesday, April 18 at 8:30 a.m. Please join us as April Vollm performs her acrobatic/comedic presentation in the SCS Multipurpose Room.
If I don’t get a chance to speak with you directly, I hope that you and your family have a wonderful spring recess. Your child has done a great job working their way through the personal and academic competencies, and in my opinion, deserves a week of fresh air and sunshine. Enjoy!
