Sippel’s Spotlight 5/24

All School ½ Day – May 26th

What an amazing week we have had, with awards ceremonies, music concerts, and great activities for the kiddos. As we continue our final week of school, we are busy with promotions and graduations. We have 32 preschoolers moving to Kindergarten, 75 Kinders moving to 1st grade, 50 eighth grades moving to high school and three Seniors move into the world; one is headed to the Marines, one is headed to the Air Force, and one has received a full ride scholarship to study Mathematics! Finally, you should be receiving or already have received an email from your kiddos teacher for the upcoming parent/teacher conferences.

It’s that time of year again! In preparation for summer time, we are having our annual BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE Scholastic Book Fair. Last year, we were able to sell almost $10,000 worth of books at half the price. That means more books in the hands of our students over the summer break.

It’s that time again to evaluate our school programs. This survey helps the administration, Title Team, and our school celebrate our GLOWS and helps us plan for ways we can improve our GROWS. I know this is a busy week yet taking the time to provide honest feedback will only help us grow and know how to BEST serve our students, families, and our staff. If you should have any questions please feel free to contact Mrs. Armstrong at
