MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Families… It is here, the last month of 2016.  As busy as all of us feel, this is the perfect time to reflect on all that 2016 has brought us.  As I reflect, I think of the honor that has been bestowed upon me to serve as your principal this year.  This has been truly a highlight of my year.  At San Antonio, we will use this month to reflect on all our accomplishments as well as where we need to grow.  I thank those of you that have welcomed me and stopped by to talk to me to provide feedback, to ask questions, and most importantly to connect.  I am looking forward to a great 2017 with our staff, you our parents, and most importantly your amazing children. I wish you the best during your time off with your children and my best wishes for a great 2017…Health, Love and Prosperity.  

COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIPS/DONATIONS

Our school is always seeking opportunities to partner with local businesses and welcomes any donations (school supplies, student incentives, gift cards. Etc).  Monetary donations can be made to the school or to PTA.  Tax ID #’s can be provided for end of year Tax purposes.  Currently we are looking for sponsorships for our 5th Grade CAMP surf.  The cost for each student is $175.  If you know any businesses that are interested in sponsoring a student or 2 or 3, we have a sponsorship letter that we can provide.  Thank you for your support.
