Calling all 6th graders... Six Flags Read to Succeed

Sixth graders... it is time to start reading! Sorry 7th and 8th graders - unfortunately, this one is only for our 6th graders. The Six Flags Read to Succeed is an exciting program that encourages students in grades K through 6 to read for fun. Students who complete six hours of recreational reading earn a free ticket to Six Flags! Students can begin reading now and must complete their six hours by Friday, April 3rd.

Click here for the 2019-2020 Reading Log which includes registration details. Please note the change to an eReading log - paper forms will no longer be accepted. Parents will register online using the Sandburg code provided, and then select your child's seminar teacher. Multiple students can be registered under one parent account, and then hours will be logged per child (this can be a combination of elementary and middle school children). Questions? Contact Nikki Dolvig.

Yearbooks are only available online and were NOT included in the cost of registration. Yearbooks will not be sold at the end of the school year so don't miss your chance! Books are $25 and can be purchased on this website under the Parent/Student Resources tab.

Sandburg Families Facebook Group

Message from the President

Welcome back to school Spartans! My name is Angela Bagdasarian and I'm excited to be the Sandburg PTA President for the 2019-2020 school year. I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with talented teachers, dedicated staff and amazing parents as we kick off a great year for our Sandburg Spartans!

I'd like to encourage you to join the PTA as the programs and events here at Sandburg are funded through our membership dues and fees. We couldn't do what we do without your support!

We will be sending out weekly PTA newsletters and updating the PTA website with information on events and activities; however, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, new ideas or would like to volunteer.

Please mark your calendar and join us for our first PTA meeting in the school library on Monday, Sept. 16th from 9AM-10AM. I look forward to meeting all of you.
