Sorrick Family Focus
Week of March 11, 2019
This week, the Sorrick PTA is hosting our annual Scholastic Book Fair! Throughout the week, classes will be visiting the Book Fair during the school day and will be able to see the selection of books and make purchases. Please see the schedule below to see when your child’s class will be visiting the Book Fair.
On the evening of Thursday, March 14th, families are invited to attend the Book Fair Family Night from 6:00-8:00 PM. Our generous PTA has worked hard to prepare a fun-filled evening! Here are some of the exciting highlights to look forward to:
Books available for purchase throughout the evening
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts to be picked up during Family Night (The PTA will have a few extra boxes for purchase if you didn’t get your order in on time.)
Book reading by Mrs. Leyden at 6:30 pm
Spiritwear for sale at a greatly reduced price – only $5 per item
Snacks and beverages available for purchase throughout the evening
Raffle baskets awarded at 7:30 pm
Not only are there awesome raffle prizes from some wonderful local businesses, but our own Sorrick staff have generously donated some fantastic prizes as well. We hope to see you there!
Pre-K parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, March 13th from 5:00 - 8:00 PM. You should have received information from your child’s teacher with specific information regarding your conference. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions. Have a great week!

Important Information for Parents

A PowerSchool Parent Access account allows you to check your child's report card each quarter. The link to sign into Parent Access is https://powerschool.npd117.net/public/. The instructions for how to open the report card can be found by clicking here. If you have not yet set up a PowerSchool Parent Access account, please follow these directions to do so. Please note that you will need an "AccessID and Access Password" for each of your children.
Volunteer & Visitor Guidelines
All parents who volunteer at school (whether it be in the classroom or on a field trip) must fill out our NPD117 Volunteer Guidelines forms and submit a copy of their photo ID. New volunteer guidelines are available to download here. Please read carefully, sign and return both pages fully completed with a current photo ID to the Sorrick office at least 7 days before attending.
Outdoor Recess in Winter
Please remember to send your child to school with appropriate attire for the cold weather. If the temperature is 20 degrees and above (including windchill), students will have outdoor recess. If the temperature dips below 20 degrees, students will have indoor recess.
