• The Sundahl Sunday Update

    Dear Families,

    It’s been a productive and fun first three weeks of school. Students are mastering routines and diving into their first curricular units. Fourth and fifth graders are choosing instruments for music instruction. Grade K - 5 classes have partnered up for cross age buddy activities; they meet for their first “Kind Buddy” activity this coming  week. Grades 1-2 had a “Recess Rodeo” on Friday to learn and practice recess games. And our fifth graders are gearing up for their upcoming outdoor education trip with presentations from Gateway Mountain Center this Monday. 

    Grades K-5 Get Out at 2:45

    Thank you K-2 parents for your support with early dismissal during the first three weeks of school. Starting Monday all students in grades K-5 get out at 2:45 Monday-Wednesday and Friday.. Thursday all students get out at 1:15pm. 

    Dismissal will be a little busier now that everyone gets out at the same time. Please plan ahead and be patient.

    Biking or Scootering to school?  Grade 3-5 students, please complete a Contract and drop it off at the Office. Grade K-2 students - make an appointment with Mr. Frankel.

    8:00 Drop Off - Grades 1-5

    Supervision for students on campus begins at 8:00am for Grades 1 - 5. Help us keep students safe; please wait with your child at the gate if you arrive before 8:00am. 

    Safe Shoes

    Please help make sure your child wears closed toed shoes with backstraps to school. They need them for safe play on the yard and for PE instruction. See the dress code guidelines in the Family Handbook for more information.
