Sorrick Family Focus
Week of May 6, 2019
This week, schools across the United States celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. Our teachers change the lives of their students each and every day, and this week, we want to show our gratitude for their dedication and commitment.
As a token of their appreciation, the PTA has scheduled some events this week for the Sorrick Staff. Here is a flyer with information about these events. If you wish to donate a food item, your donations are welcome and appreciated! Whether or not you are able to donate, simply encouraging your child to make his or her teacher a special card or write a heartfelt note will mean so much.
On May 31st, a fantastic summer literacy workshop has been scheduled for parents of bilingual Kindergarten students. This workshop aims to encourage reading over the summer while providing parents with tools to support their child's learning at home. The workshop will be held at District Office, 7825 W. 103rd Street, from 9:15-10:15 a.m. A babysitter will be available and refreshments will be served. If you would like to attend, registration is due by May 10th. Click here to register.
We look forward to seeing you and learning about literacy together!
