An update on the ruptured water pipe

An update on the ruptured water pipe from Principal Seevers & PTA Co-President Gillian Allen-White.

Principal Seevers: The cleanup and repair has begun and classes will begin tomorrow as usual. The first grade classroom will be enclosed and workers will be getting everything dry before putting a new floor covering and new student furniture. The first grade classes will be relocated to the Performance Center for about two weeks while the repairs are finished. People should send encouragement to Ms. Tsuboi and Ms. Ayubi; this is very tough for them.

Also, there have been quite a few books lost, and we plan to get support from the school district to replace the books; however, it’s not uncommon to have a gap between the loss and the coverage. I hope to give the PTA a good idea of what’s needed within a week. If you have questions or hear that others do, please let me know.

PTA President Gillian Allen-White: The PTA will have more information on school water damage needs soon, but for now, the PTA will be accepting donations for book and supply replacements. Please place your donation in the gold box by the front door.

Penny Harvest

Penny Harvest is a nationwide effort that lets kids make a big change with small change. It teaches children the power of philanthropy, and how working together in a community can help. Over the next couple of weeks your children will be asking you for any spare pennies. Collection bags were already sent home, and the pennies are collected at school each day. The children will work together to choose a cause or organization that they want to donate the money to.

Where you can find the Sanislo News

As each parent knows, it’s a challenge to stay on top of all of school activities and calendars! Happily, we have multiple methods of communicating with parents:

• Each Thursday, the volunteer-produced Sanislo newsletter will be sent home with your student; don’t forget to check that backpack!

• Prefer electronic updates? Make sure that you don’t miss a thing by receiving the Sanislo Email Blast; send your email address to newsletter@sanislo.org and we’ll make certain that you get all the important updates.

• The Big White Board, located in the entry way, is used by the PTA to remind students and parents about upcoming events. Check it when you come in and out of the school.

• Our PTA Web site: www.sanislo.org

• Friend Sanislo on Facebook!

• Follow Sanislo on Twitter!

• Attend our monthly PTA meetings.

Jog-A-Thon a run away

Thanks to everyone who helped make our 11th annual JAT such a fantastic event. The sun graced us during the action and our kids ran/walked their hearts out to to raise a total of $4500. 4th Grader Zach Ellinger-Keith has the distinction of raising the most money two years in a row and won a pair of Wild Waves tickets. Mr. Femiano’s 2nd grade class raised the most money, $840, AND ran the most average laps (K-2), so they’ll celebrate with a pizza and ice cream party. Our 4th grade classes tied for the most average laps (3-5) and won an ice cream party. Thanks again to all who helped and especially to our student runners… you’re the BEST! One more thank-you to Angie Erdman, who coordinated the event — Thanks, Angie, for all your hard work.

A Belated Thank You

We are so grateful to the support from Touratech USA, Grand Central Bakery and Tibbetts United Methodist Church for Sanislo’s Science Fair. Thank you! Your help with loaning tables and transportation saved us a few hundred dollars that can go towards more exciting things for our kids than rental fees. :)

End of the year BBQ
