Join Us! June 6 is ES Field Day
Monday, June 6 is our annual ES Field Day! As always, there will be a lot of water based activities, so your child will need to bring a complete change of clothes and a towel for afterwards. Parents are warmly invited to attend, take pictures, and interact with the children throughout the event. PK-2nd graders will have their Field Day from 8:45am-11:00am, and 3rd-5th graders will have their Field Day activities from 12:00pm-2:15pm. We look forward to seeing you there!

We Want Your Feedback!
Thanks to the MANY parents who have provided constructive, professional feedback to SAS teachers via the annual parent teacher feedback surveys! This is an integral part of SAS’s vision to engage and support faculty in a unique professional learning community that provides opportunities to grow, develop and learn together. These surveys have been specifically designed to elicit information based on your first-hand experience with the teacher, and are connected to SAS’s Standards of Professional Practice. If you haven’t yet completed the survey for your child’s teachers, log into PowerSchool at http://powerschool.saschina.org/ When you log-in you will find a Performance Evaluation Survey icon on the left to begin the process.
