School Notes: March 11, 2021

Clubs and activities have started up again at Sanford High School! Art Club, Winter Indoor Percussion, Environmental Club, and Jazz Band are just a few of the activities students can join. Winter Guard incorporates dancing with spinning flags and wooden rifles. Ocean Bowl is a competition among New England schools to see who knows the most about oceans. There’s a club or activity for everyone.

Carl J. Lamb School is having a Box Top Competition. Whichever class has the most box tops wins a celebration party! You don’t need to actually clip the box tops anymore – just scan your receipt with the box tops app on your phone within 14 days, and credit to your child’s class. If you can’t scan, just write your child’s teacher’s name on your receipts and send them to school with your child for credit.

Sanford’s School Nutrition Program is now serving after school meals at Sanford High School/SRTC. Meals are available at no cost to students attending SHS/SRTC afterschool activities Monday through Thursday. The food is fresh, delicious and nutritious for a great late day power snack. Meals are served in the hallway outside of the cafeteria from 2:15-2:45. You may pick up your meal at this time even if your activity begins later in the afternoon/evening. The meal may be taken to your activity. For more information, contact Holly Hartley at hhartley@sanford.org.
