Sorrick Family Focus
Week of April 8th , 2019
This week, there are some exciting events planned for Sorrick students! On Wednesday, April 10th, 1st grade students will participate in the Jump for Heart fundraising event in their PE class. This fundraising event supports the American Heart Association and there will be stations set up in the gym. Students will get their hearts pounding as they rotate through the stations!
Mr. Carson, our Physical Education teacher, has sent home a packet with information about the fundraiser. You are NOT required to donate to the event or return the enclosed permission slip. Your child will participate in the event during class regardless of whether or not you have chosen to donate. If you wish to donate to the fundraiser, please return the fundraising form by tomorrow, April 8th. Mr. Carson cannot accept any donations after tomorrow.
This Friday, April 12th, the PTA is hosting a jungle-themed dance party from 6:00-8:30 PM! As the flyer mentions, you are invited to dance to music provided by a DJ, play games, enjoy photo stations and pizza, salad and a beverage. Additional snacks will be available for purchase. If you did not already pay for tickets, you will be able to purchase tickets at the door for $9/person. We hope to see you there!
Have a fantastic week!
Your partner in education,
Principal of Sorrick School
