Sandwich Central School



Dear Parents and Friends,

There are 24 days left to our school year which represents 13.3% of the school year (24/180 = 13.3%).  That percentage, 13.3%, is an interesting number because it also represents the amount of time your child spends each YEAR in school. [There are 8,760 hours in a calendar year (365 days  x 24 hours); a school year for a student with perfect attendance equals 1170 hours (180 days x 6.5 hours); 1170/8760=13.3%].  
When you think about it, it is simply amazing what gets accomplished in 13.3% of the time we have with your children.  The growth of skills, aptitudes and attitudes is incredible to witness, but it should go without saying that the school cannot take all the credit for the transformations that occur every year here.  Parents and the broader community have a bigger impact than anyone seems to acknowledge, especially considering that 86.7% of a child’s life is spent away from school.


GOT LUNCH! - Inter-Lakes

gotlunchlogo Inter-Lakes wants to remind all parents that there is still time to sign up for their program.  GOT LUNCH! Inter-Lakes is a non-profit organization who have received donations to provide lunch to Inter-Lakes children during the summer.  On the first Monday of each  week, a bag of food will be dropped off for your child at your home.  There is no cost for this program. If you would like to participate in this program, fill in the form at this weblink: GOT LUNCH

Please know that this is not a district sponsored event and the district is not fiscally responsible for any portion of this program.  However, the district does support the GOT LUNCH! Inter-Lakes program and the idea of providing lunch to our students during the summer. 


Mrs. Day


Math:  The orange group continues to work on multiplication. They have learned how to use the partial-products method to solve one digit by 2-digit or 3-digit problems and next week they will be introduced to the traditional method for solving these problems. Next week they will be introduced to strategies for solving 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication problems. This week the children in the blue group have continued work on making change as well as expanding their place value skills. We have been having a lot of fun reading, writing, creating and comparing numbers into the ten-thousands.  Next week will we be reviewing the traditional methods for addition and subtraction as we work on adding and subtracting money.


Mr. Hillger's 6th Grade


Things are quickly picking up momentum in sixth grade. Merrowvista is less than two weeks and then it will be June. Please communicate with your sixth grade students about upcoming events and contact Mr. Hillger with any questions.
Language Arts/Social Studies: As a class we finished the novel Crispin: Cross of Lead together and are using it as part of our next project. Each sixth grader has picked another book set in the Middle Ages. These include The Castle Diaries, King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, Robin Hood, or Crispin: At the Edge of the World. Using these stories the students are writing summaries and comparing themes using a Venn Diagram or a method of their choice.


Mrs. Petitti’s Primary Multiage Class


Reading, Writing, Science:  The children have been working on recount writing about their vacation. They also worked hard on their Mother's Day letters and cards. A few new words were added to our Word Wall: what, when, other, with, get, were.  The children enjoyed the poem "Fishy, Fishy." We used the poem to look for sight words we have been practicing. They also worked with rhyming words.  Our new sight words were practiced during the game Pathway. Students also used magnetic letters to build words. We talked about the role of an illustrator and how important it is to add detail to pictures. Then we turned the poem “Fishy Fishy” into a book and the students practiced adding detail to illustrate the words on each page.  I have been reading Junie B. Jones during our read aloud time.  We have been looking at the elements of the story. Students are excited to see the play based on the Junie B. Jones series next Thursday.


Mrs. Beaudoin and Mrs. Ristaino


Students in Upper Multiage have been busy, busy, busy!
Math: The rookies have finished a unit on reflection, symmetry, and adding positive and negative numbers. They are now working on 3-D shapes, weight, volume, and capacity.
ELA: We have begun new novel units. Students have been split into groups between the two classes and are working on several different books. Ask your child about the novel he or she is reading! The students are also beginning to work on personal narratives. They have created Heart Maps which will be used to generate ideas to write about. The finished product will be a narrative written about a specific memory or small snippet of time that has meaning for them.
