Sandburg’s Scholastic Book Fair is coming! Our 2021 Annual Book Fair will be held online and in-person in the Sandburg Library. For all of the details, please see the Sandburg Library's Book Fair webpage.
Every year, our eighth grade students participate in our annual Career Education Day. On this day, students are given the privilege to hear presentations regarding a variety of careers. Professionals from all industries and areas of expertise present their own personal career opportunities to our students. In previous years our list of professions included firemen, police officer, author, teacher, VP of finance, animal trainer, construction worker, attorney, librarian, chef, engineer, marketing and product development, emergency doctor, nurse, FBI agent, NFL security, veterinarian, Chief Operating Officer, and small business owner.
This event will take place in Spring 2022. Details TBD.
The Spartan Store opened September 21, 2021!
Ongoing hours are:
- Tuesdays, 8 to 9 am and 2 to 4 pm
- Thursdays, 11 am to 1 pm
The Spartan Store gives students the chance to trade in their Spartan Bucks for fun prizes and gifts, gift cards to local stores & restaurants, and fun passes (like being allowed to chew gum in school for the day). Stay tuned, as the complete store menu will be posted here soon.
School Supply Kit Orders Update! Kits should have arrived at your home by Monday, August 16. If you didn't receive your kit, please contact the vendor, Carlson, at (630) 668-4000.
Please note: Some items may be missing from your kit due to being on backorder. Those items will be shipped to Sandburg shortly and we will update you on the details of the distribution process at that time. There have been worldwide shipping delays that have significantly affected Carlson, so thank you for your patience!
Also note: Boxes of tissues, disinfectant wipes, and gallon bags were already bulk delivered directly to Sandburg so those will not be in your supply kit. Instead those items will be dispersed among the classrooms.
Each student will need a PE Uniform, which can be purchased at Viking Awards in downtown Elmhurst.
Fall 2021 Details:
Update: Viking is starting to call people as their uniform orders are ready. Please wait for them to contact you if you filled out this Google form, as we don't want to overwhelm them with people before they have everything together!
More details: Plans are for students to change into uniforms for PE starting September 7 (the Tuesday after Labor Day.) Uniforms can be purchased at Viking Awards in downtown Elmhurst. Parents should reserve their sizes using this Google form and Viking will notify you when your uniforms are ready for pickup. At this time, we are asking parents to order 1 uniform per student until we are sure every student has at least 1 PE uniform. After that, you are welcome to order a 2nd uniform if you would like. Please fill out one form per child; payment is not due until you pick up. See this flyer for all of the details.
Science Olympiad for 2021-22
Illinois Science Olympiad is a non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science, and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. ISO accomplishes its goals through classroom activities, research, training workshops and the encouragement of intramural, district, regional, state and national tournaments. ISO tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of team events, which students prepare for during the year. These challenging and motivational events are well balanced between the various science disciplines. There is also a balance between events requiring knowledge of science concepts, process skills and science applications.
ISO has divided the state into ten regional competition sites. Each site hosts both middle school and high school competitions on the same day that run simultaneously. Approximately 24 schools send their team(s) to a local site to compete in these events on a Saturday in February or March. Each event is evaluated according to the scoring criteria that is published in the coaches' manual. The top students in each event receive medals according to their rank. The scores of the team in each event are then combined for an overall score for the team. At the end of the day, the top percentage of the teams then advance to the State Tournament. The scenario begins again there and the top teams advance to the national competition.
