You’ve come to the right place for information! We’ve rounded-up all the important announcements and event details Sanderson families need to know. 

News From the Cafeteria

The end of school is approaching, and all lunch accounts need to be current and paid in full by June 10. If you do not know the status of your child’s account, please contact the school, and ask for Wendy. We appreciate your attention to this matter. Wendy and Kate enjoy cooking for your children and they look forward to seeing all the students back in the fall.

Summer Camp at Mohawk

The Mohawk Trail Regional School District After Care program is providing two weeks of summer camp, called the Hilltown Scout Camp. The camp is open to grades K – 6. The camp will include exploring the property around Mohawk and creating fun things with the students. If you are interested in signing your child up for camp or would like additional information please contact Mrs. Woof at (413) 625.9811 ext. 1170 or email her. You can also check out our newsletter of the week for more information.

Due Date for Library Books

With the close of our school year being one week early, our library books need to be back one week early in order to do library inventory, maintenance, book repair, weeding, and new book cataloging. Please make sure your child has their books back by Friday, May 24. That’s the Friday just before Memorial Day. It’s amazing what a great year we’ve all had!

Teachers Appreciation Week

Our sincere thanks to the students and their families for the many kindnesses shown this week to help the staff celebrate Teachers’ Appreciation Week! We would also like to thank the PTO for their organization of these kindnesses shown each day. We appreciate your thoughtfulness!

No School

There is no school on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day. School resumes on Tuesday, May 28. Enjoy your long weekend!

Do a Daily Tick Check!

Now that the warmer weather is upon us, ticks are starting to appear more regularly. Along with these insects comes possible exposure to Lyme disease. Please take a minute to read these tips to help reduce the risk of tick and mosquito bites:

  • Avoid tick and mosquito-infested areas.
  • Wear light-colored clothing to make ticks easier to see.
  • Wear long pants and shirts; tuck pants into socks and shirt into pants.
  • Use an insect repellent containing greater than 20% DEET or other natural repellants which have shown to be effective in repelling ticks and mosquitoes.
  • Check every 2–3 hours of outdoor activity for ticks on clothing and skin. Promptly remove any attached ticks and clean area with soap and water. The longer the tick is attached the greater the risk of developing a tick-borne disease.
