Welcome to our Sanchez Elementary Site!
This past year and a half has been a difficult one for many of our students, families and staff. We're happy that we are able to return to in-person learning. To ensure that we continue to keep our students and staff safe and healthy, we have various safety precautions in place. A few of those precautions include, faucets and paper towel dispensers so that students do not need to touch the handles, spaced out lines on our playground, assigned and spaced out places for students to sit during lunch and breakfast, spaced out desks with plastic dividers, music instruction provided outdoors, recess time separated by classroom to minimize the mixing of students and all wear masks inside to minimize germ exposure. All classrooms are sanitized each night and restrooms are cleaned at least twice during the instructional day. Students have all been taught about the importance of handwashing and are required to sanitize their hands upon entry to a new room. Ensuring we can keep our students safe is our first and most important priority. Doing this allows us to have our students healthy and present so that they can learn at their highest levels. We're so happy to have our students back on campus!
Sanchez students are our number one priority. We work as a community of staff and parents to provide high academic and social-emotional standards, a community of safety and caring, a sense of compassion, engagement, leadership and personal success for every individual student.
Our world is continually changing. We provide the tools to ensure all students have the confidence and desire to go to college. We pride ourselves in being an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Certified School. Our students in Kindergarten through 5th grades are given tools so that they learn how to be organized and to think critically. Our 3rd through 5th grade students are provided the tools to keep track of their daily homework, to take notes and organize them so that they can access them to support their learning. Students in 3rd through 5th grades are also provided with tours of college and university campuses. Most importantly, all our students are provided opportunities to think critically and speak using academic vocabulary to ensure that they are provided with a rigorous curriculum that is appropriate for this generation of learners. Our students leave Sanchez prepared to embrace their next level of learning with the tools and confidence necessary to be successful.
Our talented teachers and staff hold students to high academic standards as well as help them develop the growth mindsets and habits of scholars so that they can be successful both academically and socially.
Our school provides various opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills. Students receive training in public speaking, poise and confidence in their classrooms as well as through becoming members of our Associated Student Body, our Junior Playground Coaches, the Sanchez Reading Club and the Sanchez Robotics Club. Through their training in these groups, students begin to experience themselves as leaders and are able to see their personal power and continue to make a positive impact in our world.
Every child deserves a school that prepares them for a great future. Through their experience at Sanchez they will learn responsibility, respect, leadership, personal value, kindness as well as high academic standards that will allow them to have the futures they deserve!
We're looking forward to an exciting 2021-2022 school year!
