9/03/2017 - First Week of School!!

Good Evening Sandy Plains Families!
This is Mr. Harrington, the Principal of Sandy Plains with the weekly message.  I'd like to begin by thanking all of our families for the amazing turn-out on Thursday evening for Back to School Night.  Our school hosted many families for this event and it was a great way to kick-off the 2017-18 school year.  Thanks to all of our families for making Back to School Night a success.
School News
  • The first day of school is on Tuesday.  We will open our doors at 8:30am.  If you'd like to walk your student to class on the first day, please make sure to sign in with the office to get a visitor's badge.  
  • If your student participated in the My Books summer reading program please bring in reading logs by this Friday, September 8th.  My Books logs can be turned in to either the main office or your student's homeroom teacher.
  • Anyone who wishes to volunteer at Sandy Plains Elementary, including field trips, must complete the volunteer application and training for the 2017-2018 school year.  Even if you have completed this process in the past it is a BCPS policy that all volunteers must reapply and train every year.  Mrs. Wengler, our Parent Service Coordinator will be holding group trainings during the first two weeks of school.  Trainings will take place on the following dates and times:
    • Wednesday, September 6th at 9am
    • Thursday September 7th at 3:30pm
    • Tuesday September 12th at 3:30 pm
    • Friday September 15th at 9am.  
Each training takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.  See our upcoming newsletter for further information if you are unable to attend one of these sessions.  Volunteer training is also available online.
