Principal's Update

SBE Parents and Guardians-


December is here! Seems like November flew by...and here we are standing on the doorstep of the Winter Break!


As we move through the month, I wanted to make sure that I pointed out a few important calendar dates. First of all, please note that we will have our Annual "Art in the Dark" event on Thursday, December 12th, 6-7pm. Our TK-3rd grade students will have art displayed in the hallways for parents to enjoy. We will have Hot Cocoa and I have also heard that Santa Claus may be paying a visit! Please also note that all next week, December 9th - December 13th is the Fall Book Fair!


Right before our Art in the Dark event, we will have a "Construction Meeting" for all parents and community members to get the most recent update on where we are with the new Measure I Construction plan. This will be held from 5pm-6m on the same night, Thursday December 12th.


We hope to see you at each of these events on the 12th!
