Craig Seasholes wants to invite everyone, teachers, students, and families to stop by the library to take advantage of a good long test drive of the two AWE “Early Literacy Center” computers that we have as one-month demo units. They are loaded with student software, can track and report on individual student usage, and are a great example of one direction computers in education might be headed. One unit is loaded with bilingual Spanish-English resources as well. Also please give your “2 cents worth” via a short feedback form. It will help me gather impressions to help inform discussion of educational technology at Sanislo, and beyond. The Library Blog can be found here.
Four more slots are open for 3-5th graders who are interested in helping the library club in October. Participating students must attend at least one morning a week, but are welcome each Monday Tuesday, Wednesday morning at 9:00.Sign up by the library circulation desk if you’re interested. FYI Sanislo Staff: Cristian, Jose, Kisanet, Natalia, Jesse, Fousia, Yesenia and Kimberly are signed up as of Thursday afternoon. Please contact Craig Seasholes clseasholes[at)seattleschools[dot)org
Innisbrook Fundraiser begins Sep. 28
Every year, Sanislo students raise funds for the school by selling gift wrap, high-quality chocolates, candles, jewelry, and assorted other gifts through Innisbrook. Over 100 items are under $15, and the majority are made in the USA. Students take orders from their families, friends, and neighbors and Sanislo keeps a portion of all profits. Catalogues/ordering materials will go home with your child after an all-school assembly. Please make sure you read the instructions carefully. If you have questions, please contact suzymillerseattle[at)hotmail[dot)com.

FUN (Finding Urban Nature) – This great hands-on program is from Seattle Audubon. We need parents to take small groups in 3rd grade for 4 session in the fall and 4 sessions in the spring. There is a half-day training session on Oct. 8th.
Also Ms. O’Connor was awarded a free Smart Board for the classroom and now needs a decent laptop to ensure it works well. Perhaps someone upgraded computers and would be willing to donate to Sanislo and the third grade team. Please contact Ms. O’Connor.
