Hello Sand Point Families!

A welcome letter from the school should be in your mailboxes. Included in this mailing was a school supply list. The Sand Point Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has voted to take the stress and hassle out of school preparations for families by purchasing all classroom supplies needed for the start of the year. These will be delivered directly to the classroom teachers. We hope this will give you more time to enjoy your family and less in the checkout lines.

In lieu of supply purchases, you will be asked to submit a $25 per student fee to the PTA or you may request to have these supplies covered by a scholarship. Both the payment and scholarship forms will be sent with welcome packets in September. We also have a collection of backpacks and water bottles to offer. If your child is in need of one of these items please be sure to indicate this on your form and we will work to deliver them to your child quickly. Thanks for your support!

Back to School Supplies

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year at Sand Point Elementary School!

We’re looking forward to a great year filled with learning, fun and friendship but we need your help!

Although our school budget does provide support for basic education supplies, students and teachers need more supplies than our basic education funding covers. These classroom supplies help our students learn. Across the district, most SPS elementary schools provide parents with a list of supplies to bring to school on the first day. This year the Sand Point Elementary PTA implemented something new in an attempt to save parents/guardians both time and money, by bulk purchasing classroom supplies for the entire school.

In the Welcome Packet your student receives the first day of school, there will be a request letter for $25 per student which covers the entire year’s supplies for all students. (Note: The supply fee is for classroom supplies only. Field trips and other activities may cost extra. Students will still need to provide their own full-sized backpack and re-usable water bottle.) There will be an option to request financial hardship waiver as well as provide a supplies scholarships. We look forward to your feedback and hope you find this new process to your liking.


The Sand Point Elementary PTA and Dan Warren, Principal
