Weekly Update

Dear Families,


There are a lot of exciting events happening in the school and surrounding community in the coming weeks! Please mark your calendars and complete the required forms for events of interest:


Book Talk

The first Book Talk of the school year will be held on Tuesday, September 24th. This event is open to all first-grade students and their parents. The purpose of this event is to participate in some fun reading activities centered around the Common Core State Standards. Several books are also raffled off to participating students at each meeting. A registration form was sent home last week and those who signed up are welcome to attend from 4:00-5:00 PM. If you did not get a chance to sign up this time but wish to attend the next event on October 15th, please return the next form that will be sent home in the coming weeks.


Looking for free books to enjoy with your child? Check out the Little Free Library outside of Door #1 at Sorrick School. Take a book or leave a book and enjoy some fantastic children's literature!


PTA Spiritwear Orders

If you are interested in ordering some Sorrick spiritwear for your child and/or anyone in your family, please be sure to send in your order form and payment by this Tuesday, September 24th. Orders are custom made and cannot be returned or exchanged for a different size. Please make checks payable to Sorrick PTA.
