Dear Sanders Community,

Welcome Back!!!!!!!!

I am eagerly looking forward to the upcoming school year. A year filled with opportunities to learn, to celebrate, to play, and to spread kindness. Mary Ann Sanders’ parents are an important part of our school and building strong relationships between home and school is very important to all of us. Research continues to support the theory that children, whose parents are involved in their child’s education, perform better in school. I invite you to become an active partner in our school by volunteering your time in classrooms, participating in student-parent-teacher conferences, attending school programs, and becoming an active member in our Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

Please watch your student’s Tuesday folder and visit our website as a way to stay informed. School communications will also be sent to you via the Aeries Portal. Of course you can call or stop by the office if a question arises.

Finally, Mary Ann Sanders’ Elementary is a Leader-In-Me Lighthouse School. Staff and students worked very hard to achieve that award. Be assured that we will continue to do great things as we Educate, Empower, and Encourage Excellence for everyone who steps through our doors.

Sincerely,

Mary Smyth

Principal
