Welcome to Sabold... The Greatest School on Earth!

race for education

RFE Labels are due today!

On Friday, November 8, 2019, Sabold Elementary School will be participating in our annual Race for Education. We invite family and friends to join us in helping to raise funds for field trips, winter clubs, Super Sabold Day tee shirts, classroom expenses, assemblies, essential educational needs, and other Home & School activities. If we reach our goal, we will be able to eliminate all other fundraisers during the school year, and refrain from asking you to pay for various/typical school costs.

We are giving away some awesome prizes again this year! Please keep it a secret until after the assembly, but... this year's prizes include a new Chromebook, Apple Air Pods, a Carson Wentz jersey, a Hoverboard, a new Xbox 1S, and lots more!!!

We are looking forward to another great Race for Education!

Harvest Fun Night!

Harvest Fun Night is just around the corner! Come join us for a night of fall activities- pumpkin decorating, hayrides, and an outdoor movie! See the flyer for more details.

Healthy Snacking

Healthy eating is an important part of child development. We understand that students get hungry during the day just like we do as adults, and we encourage them to snack to keep their energy levels up. We just want them to trade in the cookies for some healthier snacks. Nutrition is linked with emotional, physical, and cognitive health. Healthy eating gives your brain and your body the vitamins and minerals needed to stay well. Keep your mood and energy up with healthy snacking.

Trade in those cookies and chips for some of these alternatives:

  • Fresh fruits like bananas, apples, or berries
  • Yogurt with granola
  • Low-fat cheeses
  • Almonds and walnuts
  • Fresh vegetables
  • A single-serving of popcorn
  • Drink plenty of water to keep the body properly hydrated.

*This is not a comprehensive list, merely suggestions. Please be sure to be adhere to the safe snack guidelines in your child's classroom. There may be students who have food allergies, and certain snacks may not be permitted in the classroom.

Practice Reading at Home with i-ready

Want to access the iReady reading program from a tablet? Here are the steps to follow so that students can practice their reading skills from any tablet. All students have an iReady account. Using the iReady program counts towards nightly reading homework!

HAC Phone-Email Update_2019-2020.pdf

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 sabattendance@ssdcougars.org, 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 parentportal@ssdcougars.org

REPORTING ABSENCES

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 sabattendance@ssdcougars.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.

You can visit- https://www.ssdcougars.org/parents/attendance for more information.
