SPE All School Coin Drive: April 22-May 3

Looking for someplace to put all those annoying pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters? The 5th graders are happy to take them off your hands!

From April 22 – May 3, we will be collecting coins that will go directly towards tuition scholarships for the 5th graders attending IslandWood outdoor camp!

Each classroom will have a friendly competition to see who can raise the moist coins by 5/3. The winning classroom will get extra recess and Popsicles!

Every cent helps. Thank you!

Garden News

Spring is here and so are more opportunities to spend time in our Sand Point Elementary Garden!

Mondays and Fridays are Garden Club days. Remind your students already registered to bring their back pack and coat to meet in room 101 on their Garden Club day, rain or shine!  It will be exciting to see what gets planted, see what grows, and to think about what we will be able to harvest later this year.

Nicole Parish-Andrews, our Garden Educator is also offering Garden Recess at times so that students have another recess alternative. She would love to have volunteers help her with Garden Recess. Garden experience is NOT required – just a willingness to share your time with very enthusiastic students who want time in the garden. Contact Nicole at (425)223-0283 or nparish@foxberryeducation.com

Earth Day: Thank you to Nicole Parish-Andrews for coordinating, to the Earth Day Volunteers, and to the hardy NW students and families who helped celebrate Earth Day on Friday at Sand Point.

Bike to School Day May 8th

It’s that time of year again! Last May, SPE helped Cascade Bike Club’s Bike to School program reach some amazing goals. In May 2018, elementary, middle, and high school students logged a total of 387,835 minutes. That’s almost 270 days worth of biking!

Sand Point Elementary will again be part of the Bike to School Challenge kicking off for the month of May. Look for your Bike Logs to come home the last week in April and start recording your time for May.

May 8th is Bike to School Day – want to help greet students that ride to school and earn your Squirrel Squad hours? Contact Anne at arunning@hotmail.com for more information.

Ride on, Squirrels!

Squirrel House Rock! Save Our Squirrels!

Sand Point Elementary’s Squirrel House Rock: Save our Squirrels benefit concert was a huge success! We surpassed our goal and raised more than $111,000 BEFORE matching (please submit your matching if your company has that sweet perk)! Our event photographer is sending over the pics soon, which we will post, but we wanted to get the good news out asap!

This was our largest attended event ever with 200 guests! Awesome to see former families out again to support our squirrels! Love that SPE continues to be important to so many people. And huge thanks to our staff band, The Sand Point SuperFonics, and local comedian, Cara Rosellini!

Thank you to everyone who supported the event through item donations, procuring, attending the event, and spreading the word to family and friends to support and/or attend.

Did you miss out and want to support our squirrels? You can!
