- Community Schools
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
The students and staff at Sanborn Elementary celebrated the school's 30th anniversary on December 4th with the return of over 40 previous staff members to join in the festivities. Events of the day included a wonderful slideshow chronicling the school from an empty, open field with no building to the current school; opening of a time capsule with items/letters/posters from the past 30 years; and a helium balloon release to mark the day.
Additionally, all in attendance were given a sheet to document "paying it forward. We asked that all (students, staff--current and past) do 30 minutes of community service OR 30 kind deeds in December and these will go on a builletin board.
"Sanborn Elementary has a tremendous amount of pride, history, and traditions," said John Wahler, Principal. "Sanborn is a unique place, we are the only school named after an individual, have unusually high open-enrollment (rate of 70%), and many of Sanborn staff come here and never leave until retirement - we've only had four principals in the school's 30 year history!"
