Dear Sabold Parents,
As I work on our final Cougar Paws for the 2016-2017 school year, I feel honored and grateful to be part of the Sabold and Springfield community. I hope that when you reflect upon the year, it is filled with positive memories. We had another fantastic year. It has been a pleasure having your children here at Sabold this year. Thank you to all of our parents for your part in making Sabold the Greatest School on Earth!
The current fifth graders and I started Sabold the same year, four years ago. It will be strange not having them in the building, but I wish all of our fifth grade students the best of luck at ETR. You are ready for middle school! To our returning students, enjoy your summer; you have worked hard all year, and deserve the break. Remember to come back in September #SABOLDSTRONG!
The 2016-2017 Yearbooks look great! Students who ordered yearbooks will receive them today.
- The last day of school is Friday, June 16. Dismissal will be at 11:30.
- Return your library books! Report cards will be mailed home this summer unless there is an outstanding library book or fine. Please contact the main office if you have any questions about library books.
- Information about classroom assignments and the 2017-2018 school year will be mailed home in August.
- Literacy Links will come home today. Be sure students read, and fill out the Literacy Links form so that students can participate in our Summer Literacy Celebration next fall!

We are having a lot of fun this last week of school. The learning doesn't stop for us here at Sabold, but we are squeezing in some time for building memories with class parties, talent shows, special projects, and recognizing student accomplishments. Yesterday, we had our Trimester 3 Assembly. We recognized our students who met the Trimester 3 Math, Reading, and "Sabold Star" (characteristics of a successful learner) goals. During the assembly, we talked about how setting and accomplishing our goals helps us build positive attitudes, create new goals, and can even produce some tangible rewards. We set a goal for the Race for Education earlier this year, and the students surpassed that goal with ease. This year's reward was to "slime" me. It was a lot of fun (for the kids... not so much for me.).
SUPER SABOLD DAY
Another awesome Super Sabold Day... Thank you to all of our parent volunteers who helped make the day a huge success. We could not have done it without you. We hope you enjoyed the day!
SUPPLY LISTS 2017-2018
Student supply lists are now available for the 2017-2018 school year. We are working with Edukit again this year if you would like to purchase the materials from a single vendor. Please see the Edukit flyer for pricing.
ATTENTION FIFTH GRADE PARENTS!
Please see the attached flyer about ETR's Home & School Association.
If you would like to report an absence via email, please send the email to email@example.com – there is a period between “sabold” and “hotline” in the email address.
Additionally, there is a link to submit attendance on the school website. If you go to Sabold’s page, use your mouse to hover over “Parents” in the upper right-hand corner. Select “Attendance” from the dropdown list. In the middle of the page you will find a link to submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. An added bonus to the hotline email is that it will serve as written notice of your child’s absence. You will not need to send an additional note to school so that the absence will be marked as excused. We will retain the email as your absence note.
