School Notes: March 28, 2021

Nicole Chapa, an 8th grade Sanford Middle School student, organized an opportunity for the SMS JMG students to partner with Tara Pierce of Sole Hope to help Ugandans in need. Students worked to create parts of denim shoes that prevent jigger infections in the feet of villagers. Shoes can have an incredible lasting impact on Ugandan villages, enabling people to get back to their families, work, and school. Visit solehope.org for more information on how you can get involved.

Sanford Middle School athletics will begin on April 26, after school vacation. 7th and 8th grade Girls Softball, 7th and 8th grade Boys Baseball, and Track and Field for 6th, 7th and 8th graders will be offered. Sign up beginning April 5 at https://www.sanford.org/o/sanford-middle-school/page/sports.
