Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! It is my privilege to be the Principal of Sandpiper School. I want to extend a very special welcome to our new families and welcome back to our returning families.

Wonderful things continue to happen at Sandpiper. We are very proud of our first class of graduating 8th graders! Congratulations on all your achievements and best of luck in high school.

Sandpiper's incredible success is the result of teachers, staff, students, and families coming together in an vigorous and caring environment. Your active support through PTA volunteerism and School Force donations is critical to our school's success. This fall we will continue to provide information about our school finances and share what you can do to ensure a high-quality education for your student. Thank you for getting involved in your student's education.

Our most important reminder continues to be on the safety of our students. We are currently planning for a safe return to campus and I will update you on procedures as soon as they are finalized. Thank you for supporting everyone's health and safety by following the rules of our school. Your actions make the difference for our community.

I am deeply committed to collaborating with all the members of our community to provide it an extraordinary experience for our students. I encourage you to connect with through email, social media, meetings, events or newsletters.
