MESSAGE FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE

Hello Raven families, Nurse Ric here.  As we rapidly approach "in school" learning, please make sure and check that your little Ravens are fully vaccinated.  Remember that according to state law, unvaccinated children are not allowed to attend school. Also consider getting them the flu shot, now, more than ever, it is important for a safe and healthy fall and winter. Attached is a link to FREE Renton Drive through flu and immunization clinic.  Pick a time that is best for you.   Thank you and have a great week. 

 

 

SEPTEMBER 2020 NEWSLETTER

Click here for September Newsletter

Hello Sartori Families!

Thank you for your support during our first week of school. We have “visited” many classrooms. It is fun to see students and teachers engaged in learning. We have had a lot of families reach out to share their experiences with us. Please continue to keep in communication with your classroom teacher with any needs that may arise.

A few reminders:

•           Please be sure your student attends their Zoom session. This is a great opportunity for us to continue to grow our community and for students to socialize. We would like to encourage families to “step away” at this time, so the students are engaged with their class.

•           Supply Pick-up is every other Wednesday from 11-12:30PM. Please look for additional information from your classroom teacher. 

•           Sept. 21st from 6-7:30PM. This will be a webinar. Look for details soon.

Again, thank you very much for your participation and feedback during our launch. At Sartori, we are Belonging & Growing our Identity. Together we SOAR!!!

IN HOME LEARNING

Will your student be accessing in-home learning while with a childcare provider, family, friend, or neighbor?
Along with family members, many other caring individuals will be supporting student learning as we start the school year fully remote. Regular communication between school, home, and childcare environment promotes a holistic approach to supporting students in remote learning. Please help keep caregivers informed by:

·         Forwarding them district and school communications

·         Encouraging them to check the district website and Facebook page

·         Please continue to watch your teacher’s Seesaw page. At Sartori, we use Seesaw as our two-way communication. Reminder: Seesaw can be translated into many different languages. If you speak a language other than English, try the translation feature.

Attendance

Hello Ravens! Attendance is being taken daily just like if you came to school. If for any reason you can’t attend, please email me @ sartori.attendance@rentonschools.us to let me know. If you need a pre-arranged absence for your student, please email me for the form to be approved.

Sartori STEM Integration Plan

STEM is not a curriculum, set of standards, or materials. STEM is the intentional integration of content with critical thinking and problem solving skills. We will be using a STEM focused approach to instruction in order to prepare our students to be contributing citizens in our community.
