Jump Rope for Heart
Thank you to all our students, staff, and parent volunteers who made our annual Jump Rope for Heart event a huge success! As of Friday afternoon, we had raised almost $4,000 for the American Heart Association. Sounds like we will be dumping a lot of slime on Mrs. Hicks' head in the next week or so. Great job!!
Parent/Teacher Conferences - November 14-18
During the week of November 14-18, we will have minimum days and Parent/Teacher Conferences. Be on the look-out for information from your child's teacher about dates and times you can schedule. For planning purposes, please note that all students in Kindergarten to 6th Grade will be released at 1:05 P.M. Please mark your calendars now.
Dismissal on Settle Road
We will no longer release students at the second, Intermediate Dismissal from the Settle Road Ramp. We don't have enough adult coverage to main the gate. All Intermediate students (Grades 4th-6th) will still be escorted to the front of the campus by their teachers. The students are then welcome to walk up to Settle Road from there. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we want to be sure that all students are safe. Thank you!

- Grocery store gift card drive will run from November 15th - December 2nd.

Project Safe Camps!
Early Admission Kindergarten (EAK)
Breakfast Club is back and running every Wednesday from 8:45-10:45 AM. Teachers submit work/projects that need to be completed for the classroom. Parents come in and work in our new LRC Building (Learning Resource Center) for a couple hours to complete those projects.
If you are interested, please complete the volunteer packet prior to arriving on campus. You will also need to bring your Driver's License to scan into our computer visitor system. If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Jenn in the front office.
Make-It, Take-It Parent Meeting
Come meet Santee's behavior team and find helpful strategies to implement at home. You'll leave with individualized strategies and resources that you can begin implementing right away. You'll have access to three team members to help you create individualized systems for your child! Listed above are just a few of the strategies you'll go home with!
Are you interested in volunteering on campus this year? Below you will find the link to the volunteer application. Each adult that wishes to work in Breakfast Club, as a Room Parent, attend Field Trips, become a Garden Volunteer or just work on campus, you must fill out a new application each year. This is the first year that the entire process is electronic, please click on the link for more information. Thank you!
