Congratulations Sandpiper! We received a grade of "A" from the Arizona Department of Education! Thank you to all the teachers and staff for the knowledge, motivation and love you give to our students every day. Thank you to Ms. Cameron for your leadership and creating such a wonderful learning enviroment! Thank you to all the parents that support our school and have created a strong community. And thank you to our students for all your hard work at school!

We had a wonderful celebration on Monday, October 9th! Thank you to The Balloon People, Creative Cappuccino, and Fabulous Food Fine Catering and Events- the kids and teachers loved everything! We'd also like to thank Gretchen Birkett for her help in making a beautiful photo collage of our Sandpiper teachers!

We Want YOU... to Volunteer!

Each family is asked to bring non-alcoholic beverages, dinner food, snacks, whatever they want to eat, for their family only. Along with the food your family is bringing, everyone is asked to bring their own seating and guest table. Decorate your table any way that you wish.  Prizes will be awarded, so be creative and have fun with this! If you wish to create a sports bar or a beach front, do it! Each family is also asked to supply dessert for 10 guests, a large dessert buffet will be created for all to enjoy.

November 22nd-24th

We all love our school garden and the kids can't wait to get back in there growing and eating their vegetables. The garden and your kids need you to make it happen! 

Recess Garden Volunteers - Ongoing

​Your Garden Team needs your help in bringing the opportunity to work in the garden during recess to all 630 students this year. The more parents we have the more often our kids can grow and eat their veggies. We are starting with Mondays. If we get enough volunteers for that day, we can add Thursdays. We need the most help from 10:45am-11:45am, but welcome help between 10:45am and 1:00pm.
