It's hard to believe we're in the home stretch of 2023! Hopefully everyone has scheduled some rest and relaxation over Winter break next week.

We'll keep this one brief, since there's plenty to do this time of year, but we'd be remiss if we didn't take a moment to share our gratitude for all of your support this past year. The PTO's mission of community, connectivity and inclusion (with a bit of fun sprinkled in there πŸ₯³) could not be fulfilled without all of you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all you do for our kids, our teachers & staff, and our community.

We'll see you next year, Bulldogs! 😎


There's still time...

Explorations Registration is OPEN!


Registration will remain open through Friday, December 22nd at 5pm.

Classes will begin the week of January 8th. Most classes run for six weeks with the exception of Chess Club and Student Council.

❄️ Just a friendly reminder that during the winter months, if we have to cancel classes due to delays or snow days, classes will be made up at the end of the sessions - the PTO calendar will be updated to reflect those changes, as needed.

Register Today!


The PTO has a new website!

We've given our PTO website an ol' refresh and hope you'll find that it is easy to navigate and full of useful information.

Take a looksie and you'll find:

  • PTO calendar of events
  • Archived issues of this newsletter
  • Information on volunteer opportunities
  • Sanborn PTO meeting information (join us!)
  • Direct and indirect donation opportunities
  • Links to important school resources, like change in dismissal forms, CORI forms, etc.

Directories are here!

If you opted-in to participate in and receive a Directory via Aspen, you received an email with the document last week!

If you see something that is incorrect in the Directory, please correct it in Aspen. Any changes will be reflected in the '24/'25 Sanborn Directory.

As always, please be respectful of the folks listed in the directory and do not use this information for solicitation of any kind.
