Sierra Family Newsletter March 12, 2021

Message from the Principal

Dear Sierra Families,


1) Thank you to everyone who participated in our online eBay auction! It was a great success raising $12,000! We are so grateful to this generous community. And thank you to our incredible PTC volunteers and donors for making it all possible!


2) If you still want to participate, we are keeping our Fund-a-Need fundraising tradition tied to our annual auction open. If every family donated $43 for every child they have at Sierra, we would meet our goal of $15,000! This supports outdoor education (getting shade for our outdoor learning spaces for when the weather heats up!), science materials, IB training for staff to maintain our IB authorization, and much more! Click here to donate now!


3) I have been reviewing our schoolwide learning data for each and every student. I am absolutely AMAZED by the tremendous progress and growth we are seeing thanks to the amazing teachers and instructional aide team here, and your support at home. One of the upsides to having smaller groups on campus is definitely paying off in the growth our sharks are proving!


4) MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!! Two more weeks of the AM/PM schedule and then we will resume our typical pre-pandemic full day bell schedule, on our first day back from spring break, TUESDAY, April 6th, below:


  • Monday: Kindergarten 7:50-1:10; 1st-6th 7:50-1:20
  • Tuesday - Friday: Kindergarten 7:50-2:10; 1st-6th 7:50-2:20
  • Minimum Days (May 13, May 17, and June 3): Kindergarten 7:50-12:10; 1st-6th 7:50-12:20


Warmly,

Amy Westberg
