Sandyview PTO News:

Our next PTO meeting is on Monday, Nov. 13 at 5:45pm. We will be discussing Christmas Workshop and looking at planning events for the spring.  Please join us!

Picture Retakes:

Picture Retakes are Tuesday, November 14.  If your child would like their picture retaken, please make sure they bring in their original picture package.  

Sandyview Cares:

Last week your family should have received the Sandyview Cares form. If your family could benefit from help with Christmas gifts this year, please fill out the form and return it in an envelope addressed to Jeff Roon no later than Monday, November 20.  If you did not receive the form, please call the office and Mrs. Robbins will make sure one is sent home.

Cold & Flu Season:

Cold and flu season is upon us. Here is a friendly reminder of our 24 hour illness policy: We make every effort to keep communicable diseases out of school. If your child does become ill, we request that you keep your child home until the symptoms disappear. Students must be fever-free for 24 hours (without medication), have had no vomiting, and no flu-like symptoms before returning to school.

Veteran Thanks You's:

Thank you to all the families that sent in addresses for veterans or active duty military personnel. The cards are all done and will be mailed within the coming week!  Tomorrow is veteran’s day, please be sure to thank a veteran!

Tulip Time:

Tulip Time is looking for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders interested in becoming Dutch Dancers! Kinder Dutch Dance information and registration can be found at

Hamilton Inside Soccer Tournament:

To any Hamilton student, check your email (middle school students only), check with Coach Robinson, or check with Mrs. Robbins in the office if interested in playing in the annual 5v5 Holiday Indoor Soccer Tournament coming up on Friday, Dec. 22--our first day of Holiday Break. Registration is due to Coach Robinson no later than Wednesday, Dec. 6. ALL ARE WELCOME!

Sandyview Kids S.O.A.R

Throughout the week, students who are seen making positive behavior choices are given a ticket.  Each classroom has their own jar and all the tickets awarded during the week are placed in this jar.  Every Friday, the tickets from all the classroom’s jars are compiled together and 10 student’s names are drawn for a reward.  This week’s reward was lunch with a friend at the SOAR table on Friday.  This week’s winners were: Jamie Betten, Brady Genzink, Owen Hirdes, Sawyer Kroeze, Maddie Morlan, Hayden O’Connor, Tyler Stark, Kellan VanDerMeulen, Isabella Zoerhof, Micah Zoet

In addition, classrooms total up their tickets for the week and when an individual classroom reaches a branch on the S.O.A.R. tree, the classroom gets an all-class reward.  Rewards this week were…

Kindergarten: Extra 15 min recess

1st Grade: Class vote - no homework

2nd Grade: Class vote - dress up as your favorite career

3rd Grade: Watched “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”

4th Grade: Extra 15 min recess

Let Me Run:

Best of luck to our 4th grade Let Me Run boys as they participate in tomorrow’s 5k in Kenowa Falls.  For the past seven weeks, the program has been “inspiring the boys through the power of running to be courageous enough to be themselves, to build healthy relationships, and to live an active lifestyle.”  They worked hard and are ready for tomorrow’s race!
