Flu Shots November 16th from 12pm – 2pm

The Seattle Visiting Nurses Association is coming on November 16th from 12pm-2pm to administer flu shots! Above is the consent form and a flu vaccine info sheet. Please fill out and send in the form ASAP. We now have a new flu vaccine vendor (Seattle VNA) as there was a problem with the previous vendor. If you previously sent in a consent form, your child should have already come home with a new form and letter about the change. Sorry for the inconvenience. The good news is the Seattle VNA will also administer flu vaccines to parents and any other adults!

Be here 11/16 from 12-2pm for your flu shot!

Garden Corner

The Sand Point Elementary School Learning Garden program is an amazing after-school, hands-on learning opportunity for students at SPE! The program runs 6 weeks in the Fall and another 6 in the Spring. Kids get to learn about soil, insects, native plants, wildlife, seeds and more while planting and harvesting vegetables and flowers in the garden. Last week, the 1st-2nd graders made delicious salsa verde and the 3rd-5th graders got to fry up some tasty green tomatoes. If you didn’t get a chance to sign your child up this season, look for the fliers in kid mail early next Spring.

We will also be hosting a Garden Work Party after school on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15TH, from 2:30-5:30. No previous garden experience necessary. Kids welcome. Come check out the garden, help us winterize the beds, and take home some fresh greens! Hope to see you there!

SPE Teacher Zoe Manzo Receives Symetra Heroes in the Classroom Award

Congratulations to our very own Zoe Manzo who received a Symetra Heroes in the Classroom award at the all-school assembly on Friday! Ms. Manzo was recognized for creating a positive climate for learning in the classroom and making significant contributions to help students reach their academic potential. We are so proud of her and know it is a well deserved honor!

Awards are given in front of the students and school community during a surprise in-school presentation. It was a HUGE surprise to her and our community! Symetra also made a $2,000 donation to Sand Point Elementary for books and supplies. Ms. Manzo received tickets to the Seattle Seahawks game on Thursday, November 15th and will be acknowledged during an on-field presentation!

See you on the jumbotron, Zoe Manzo! You are a Hero to us and our Squirrels!
