The 2017-2018 School Year Comes to an End

As the school year draws to a close, we have much to celebrate at Sabold, as well as many memories of a great school year. We have celebrated many achievements and excelled beyond our expectations.

I always say that Sabold is the greatest school on Earth, and we cannot achieve that very official status without our hard-working students, staff, parents, and community. Thank you for your partnership in making Sabold what it is, the greatest school on Earth.

In August, you will receive information about the 2018-2019 school year, classroom assignments, and important events. Until then, relax and have a great summer!

SUPER SABOLD DAY

Wow! What a Super Sabold Day!

Thank you for your help in making Super Sabold Day another fun and memorable day for our students. We had a great time, and we could not have done it without the support of all our volunteers and Sabold families. We appreciate you being a part of this event for our children.

A special thank you goes to Mr. Lupoli for putting it all together. It took a great deal of his time and effort, and it was fantastic as usual.

Students of the Month

Check out the Students of the Month for June, and read what their teachers had to say about them. These students are being recognized for their hard work, kindness, and desire to make themselves and our school better each day. We are proud of our Sabold Cougars!

Grade 5- Maddie Henry

"Maddie has worked incredibly hard all year and her efforts have certainly paid off. Maddie consistently goes above and beyond in her work, often taking assignments home to continue improving them, even when it is not required. Her writing assignments are often used as student examples in ELA class, but she is never one to brag or bring attention to herself, although positive attention is well-deserved! Maddie is kind, patient, and has a tremendous wit and sense of humor." -Mrs. Miller & Mrs. Robinson


Grade 4- Kyle Sia

"Kyle leads by example each and every day. Kyle is hardworking, dedicated, respectful, and helpful. He listens closely, always gives his fullest effort, and sets goals for himself. Often these goals go beyond what is expected in the classroom. Kyle is passionate about his academic success, his friendships, and his extracurricular activities. Kyle recognizes what it means to be a Sabold student, and he demonstrates it daily without a need for reminders or recognition." -Ms. O'Neill

Grade 3- Tori Appling

"Tori has an unbelievable work ethic and it has helped her improve throughout the year. In her most recent MAPS tests, Tori went up 17 points in LA, and 25 points in Math. She has not missed a single day of school and brings a great attitude each and every day." -Mr. Adolph

Grade 2- Isabella Rosini

"Bella begins each day ready to learn and with a smile on her face. She always exhibits politeness and good manners to her peers and teachers. Bella is very kind, responsible, and is always willing to help another student. You can find her being a true friend along with being a great role model for our class. I am very proud of the kind, hardworking student that she has been throughout the year." -Mrs. Orio

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.

INFORMATION FROM HOME & SCHOOL

Thank you to all of our Home & School volunteers. Your selfless efforts enable us to meet the needs and aspirations of our school.

A special THANK YOU goes to our outgoing Home & School President, Mrs. Clark, and our Treasurer, Mrs. Nemeth, who have been an invaluable part of Sabold the last few years. We cannot thank you enough for giving your time, effort, and support.

We welcome Mrs. Lebano and Mrs. Zimmerman to the Home & School board next year, joining Mrs. Corliss and Mrs. Colonna. We are looking forward to another great year!

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 saboldattendance@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


Growth Mindset

Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference.

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.

Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships. When you read Mindset, you’ll see how.

Watch this video (HERE) with your children, and talk about the importance of having a Growth Mindset!

REPORTING ABSENCES

If you would like to report an absence via email, please send the email to sabold.hotline@ssdcougars.org – 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 saboldattendance@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.
