OPEN HOUSE is coming up on Thursday, September 14th! Teachers will be in classrooms ready to meet families between 5:00-7:00pm. There will be no formal program, just a chance to experience your student's schedule, meet teachers & see classrooms. Please join us!

Sanford Parent Group (SPG) & Site Council

SPG usually meets the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:00pm during the school year. The 2nd Thursday in September is our Open House, so our next meeting is Thursday, October 13th. We meet in the media center.

Site Council meets every other month on the first Thursday at 5:00pm during the school year. Our first meeting this fall will be Thursday, October 6th. We meet in the media center. Site Council meetings, like SPG, are open meetings.
