Weekly Principal’s Reminders 2.11.22

Hello Sanderlin Sea Turtle Learning Community,

I want to thank all of the parents and families for their patience this week with some of the difficult arrival and dismissal delays. I really appreciate the support you gave to my staff!

This edition of my weekly reminders is going to be focused on a very exciting announcement for James B. Sanderlin IB World School. Our fantastic school has been nominated as one of the top performing schools in the country! Our school is being recognized in April at the Magnet Schools of America Conference. We are in competition at this event for THE top performing magnet school in the country. On March 2nd, the Magnet Schools of America team will be coming to visit Sanderlin and we will be showcasing our program. Obviously, we want our school to really shine on this visit. We are organizing a campus beautification event on Feb. 26th from 9:00 – 11:30 to do some sprucing up around our campus. If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please sign up using the forms link below. We will be organizing volunteers into teams to do things like painting, mulching, planting new plants in planters, etc.

In addition, if you are willing and able to provide donations to the school for materials such as pots, plants, paint and other beautification supplies, we would love collect those. Please note that we are starting a SEPARATE school wide fundraiser next week that is allocated specifically for students and student incentives. I wanted to let you know this ahead of time as we are not trying to ask for too much! Simply donate if you are willing and I promise we will use it to make some changes!
