Congratulations to Mr. Dustin Morrow, our 2020-21 Teacher of the Year. We know your colleagues are PROUD of you! It's always an honor to celebrate with our Site Teachers of the Year, our Top Finalists, and of course introduce the teacher who will represent Sand Springs Public Schools in the state competition for State Teacher of the Year! In case you missed it, you can watch the reception on the Sandite Learning YouTube Channel!
The snow and the lengthy period of extremely cold temperatures unfortunately brought extensive damage to a few of our school sites. Pictured below are Angus Valley Elementary, Administration Building, old Central Ninth Grade Center, and Early Childhood Education Center. Memorial Stadium and Julia Martin Administration Building also endured some broken water pipes. The students and teachers at Angus Valley Elementary and Early Childhood Education Center were forced to continue distance learning this week due to the drying and clean up necessary at those sites. Life this week at the Administration Offices has been quite a challenge. BUT, our Sandite team is strong and everyone has reacted like champions, doing what it takes to keep things going AND, with a positive attitude. BIG THANK YOU to all who have been affected by the current series of events. Your incredible character is glaringly obvious! BIG THANK YOU to Mr. Mike Bynum for the stamina you have illustrated through all of the crazy events. You are a rock star!
Our COVID Vaccine Clinic is scheduled for Friday, March 5. at CPHS. If you completed our survey yesterday, you will receive a link to a portal for Sand Springs Public Schools employees who indicated they would want a vaccine on site. This will come with some instructions as well. Be looking for an email from me with this important information.
Distance Learning has been at its finest all week long in the homes of our Angus Valley students! Parents and students were hard at work partnering with our teachers. From one of our parents, and I quote, "This girl was focused, engaged, and participating while learning new material! School may look different, but make no mistake - teachers are teaching and kids are learning!" What a testament to our determination to make it all work!
