Sorrick Family Focus
Week of October 7, 2019
On Monday, October 7th, students who were unable to take their Fall photo or who wish to retake their photo can participate in photo retake day. Times have been scheduled for participating students in each class to visit the Media Center to have their photos taken.
The Book Fair sponsored by the Sorrick PTA will take place this week between October 7th and October 11th. Below, you will find the schedule of when your child's class will attend the book fair throughout the school day.
This year, families can purchase books in a number of different ways. If you wish to purchase books online, you may visit our school’s Scholastic book fair web page. Online purchases can be made between now and October 12th. You also have the option to load money through the online ewallet portal. This allows you to preload money that your child can spend on books when he or she visits the book fair. Of course, you still have the option to send your child to school with money that he or she can spend as well. If you wish to view the book selection in advance, check out the book fair flyer here. If you wish to shop with your child, please visit Sorrick School on Book Fair Family Night, which is Thursday October 10th from 6:00-8:00 PM. Taffy Apple orders can also be picked up that evening. Please enter through door #11. We hope to see you there!
Just a friendly reminder, there is a three-day weekend due to the Columbus Day holiday. School will be closed on Monday, October 14th and will resume on Tuesday, October 15th. Enjoy the extra time to relax as a family!
