Principal's Newsletter

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that we are nearly half way through November!  In just a few weeks, we will be enjoying our Thanksgiving Break.  Thank you for your continued support and involvement as we work together to ensure all students are successful at Sweet Springs Elementary!  We hope that each of you have a wonderful and relaxing time with family and friends during the holiday.  

Our “Blast Off into Learning” Family Literacy Night was a hit.  We had 150 students and family members in attendance.  Some of the festivities included a Galaxy Walk, To the Moon Space trivia, Moon Writing, Scholastic Book Fair, and recognition of our Read-A-Thon winners!  Many thanks to our staff and families helping make this a fun-filled night of learning!

Elementary Career Day is scheduled for Tuesday, November 22.  Career Day is an exciting event where parents and volunteers visit our school to share their work experiences with students.  This year we have 11 volunteers representing a wide variety of jobs and businesses: US Postman, Equity Bank, National Guard, Nurse, Koppel Fabrication, Hairstylist, Farmer, Railroad Welder, Plumber, Saline County Sherriff, Hemme Brothers Creamery, and Red Letter Apparel.  Students will choose five sessions they wish to attend to learn more about specific jobs.  We appreciate all of our volunteers!                      

As always, feel free to reach out at anytime and know I welcome your questions, concerns, and input.
