Information About the Field Trip

We had a fantastic response to our request for parent field trip drivers. While we don't need as many seats as were offered, we still want all parents who volunteered to come to the zoo and help chaperone. Your homeroom teacher may ask you to carpool with another parent or meet us at the zoo. We requested more wristbands so all parent drivers will get in free. Thank you for your support! SFA parents are the best! If you haven't already sent in your field trip form, please do so by the 2nd of October so your child may attend with us.

Total Lunar Eclipse

We've talked about the total lunar eclipse in science class and it should be spectacular! If you're interested in catching the total lunar eclipse, it is this Sunday September 27th. In Wichita, the max view is 9:47 PM. It starts at 7:11 and ends at 12:22. More great information can be found here.

Food/Coat Drive

SFA is hosting a canned food drive as well as a coat drive to help those in need. If you would like to donate any items to either drive, please send them to school with your child.
