Summer Communication from Sandalwood - Posted 7/15/21

This is Dr. Hatcher with our first message of the new school year. I want to let you know we officially have four weeks before the start of school on Tuesday August 10th. The summer has quickly faded away, and we are still preparing for our student's great return.

Just a few announcements as you begin to prepare your school shopping lists. Please note: As a safety precaution only see-through plastic or mesh backpacks will be allowed inside our classrooms. A generic supplies list recommendation will be posted to our website, however specific classes may add additional suggestions at a later time.

Those Saints needing to take the Algebra 1 FSA can do so on Thursday, July 22nd. Students may report to the media center at 8:00 A.M. on Thursday, July 22nd. Masks are optional. Students will take two sessions in one day.

Take advantage of this opportunity so that you have one less obligation when school starts back in a couple of weeks.


Attention Juniors! Sandalwood’s AVID site will be hosting a free SAT prep course Monday-Thursday next week July 19th through July 22nd from 8:00 A.M. -1:00 P.M. . There will be an English and math instructor on site providing SAT study materials and tips for performing your best on the test.

This event is for SHS Juniors, please use the forms link on the Saint Nation Teams page to register for a day, or days, you would like to attend to give the instructors an idea of how many materials they will need. You will enter in the building through the main faculty entrance of the building and report to room 140.

Hope to see you there, if you cannot make it, the materials will be available once the school years starts in room 140, see Mrs. Lewis.
