Welcome to Sabold... The Greatest School on Earth!
We had an incredible spring fair! Thank you for coming out and enjoying the fun and beautiful night! A BIG Thank You goes to Mrs. Bassett and Mrs. Crowding for planning and running the event, and to all of our volunteers for helping out!
Congratulations to our band and orchestra members on their concerts. You should all be proud of yourselves for your dedication, hard work, and performance this year!
If you are entering the building for a meeting or other reason, please be sure you have your license/ ID with you. You must have your ID scanned through our Raptor system in order to enter the building.
A number of resources for elementary parents can be found online. These include, information about absences, report cards, tutoring, and a link to our Elementary Student Handbook. Please be sure to review the student handbook. If you have any questions, please contact us. Elementary Resources Link
As a reminder, electronics brought to school are at your own risk. If students are bringing phones, smart watches, etc., they need to be turned off and remain in the students' book bags during the school day. Students using "Fitbits" are ok, as long as (if applicable) the text, camera, etc. features are disabled while in school.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education has released the building level scores for the 2021-2022 school year. This data is mostly based on academic achievement and academic growth for students. We are excited to announce that Sabold Elementary has the highest building level score out of any school in Delaware County! Sabold's building level score is also (tied for) the second highest in the state among all elementary schools. Congratulations to our students and staff for the well-deserved recognition. As always, the success of Springfield students is the result of many. Thank you to our families and community for the continued support!
Super Sabold Day!
Super Sabold Day is just around the corner! Parents/ Guardians are invited to see students participating in fun outdoor games and activities throughout the day.

Students of the month- May
Gr. 5- Hailey Ragan
"Hailey is a perfect example of positivity, politeness, and perseverance. She comes to school each day with a positive outlook and an eagerness to learn something new. She works hard and takes risks as a learner. She is always focused on her work and gives every assignment 100% effort. She doesn’t shy a way from a challenge, and she perseveres through the tough stuff. She loves to help others and is quick to lend a hand to a classmate or teacher. She shows she is a leader and a role model for her classmates by being cooperative, respectful, and responsible. We are so lucky to have such friendly, kind, and hard-working student and classmate here at Sabold. Hailey, we are so proud of you! " -Mrs. Wisneski
Gr. 4- Julian Rizzo
"Jules is a friend to everyone at Sabold. Whether you are an old friend or he is meeting you for the first time, Jules makes everyone feel welcome and important. His kindness and positivity are contagious in Room 18. It is impossible to be anything but happy when you are around Jules! He starts every day by greeting his classmates and asking them about their days. Jules works hard to reach his goals both in Room 18 and in Mrs. Romanelli's classroom. He takes pride in his own success, as well as the accomplishments of his classmates. Jules has many important responsibilities in our classroom, including filling out the dismissal sheet for the entire school. He certainly embraces our Sabold motto of "Work hard. Be nice." We are proud of you, Jules! " - Ms. O'Neill
gr. 3- Sa'Nya Johnson
"Sa'Nya is an exceptional role model for Sabold's expectations of "Work hard. Be nice". She is determined to always do her best and persists through every challenge with a smile! Her willingness to accept challenges has made her grow as a learner. Sa'Nya is always there for anyone when they need a friend. Her qualities of determination, helpfulness and kindness make her a great example of a student of the month! We are lucky to have Sa'Nya in Room 4! - Ms. hawley

no left turns into the queue!
We have run into some challenges maintaining an efficient carline for our morning drop-off. This occurs most often when cars try to make left-hand turns into the queue for drop-off. We experience gridlock that extends past our exit lane and even to Baltimore Pike. Cars are unable to enter or exit the property when this happens. Turning left out of our exit lane onto E. Thomson Ave can cause delays; however, the main reason for the gridlock and congestion is making a left into the queue from E. Thomson Ave. Please help us maintain a safe and efficient carline by avoiding left-hand turns into the queue during morning drop-off (as well as dismissal) when there is a line that extends onto E. Thomson Ave. If you are turning onto E. Thomson Ave. from Baltimore Pike, please go down to Granite Terrace, Barker Rd., etc. and turn around so that you can make a right-hand turn into our queue, or please take a different route to get to Sabold. Thank you!
Child care weather watch
Recess is an important (and fun!) time of the day. We do our best to get our students outside everyday for play and socialization. We use this chart as a resource to help make decisions about recess on days when necessary.
Please be sure your child is dressed for the weather.
HOME & SCHOOL information
Are you using home access center yet?
If you need to change a phone number or email, sign up for text alerts, check your child's attendance, or check report card grades, you will want to use the Home Access Center.
You can also check the Home Access Center for any outstanding unexcused absences. Remember, all absences require a written note. That can be done via email by emailing email@example.com, or a hand-written note can be sent to the main office. A phone call to our attendance hotline still requires a written note for the absence to be excused (as required by law). An email works well for us, and hopefully that makes it easier on you.
You can visit the HAC website here: http://ssdcougars.org/HAC. You can submit a contact form to obtain login credentials. If you need assistance, email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to report an absence via email, please send the email using this link: sabattendance
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 email@example.com 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.
You can visit- https://www.ssdcougars.org/parents/attendance for more information.
