School Day Events

Donuts and Meet the Principal

On this special day join your child for a donut before school.  When they go off to class stay for a brief conversation with the principal about how you can make this year a great one for your child.

Holiday Gift Shop

A fundraiser and the first time many of our students can bring a few dollars and make their own purchases (under the watchful eye of our volunteers).  Students buy coffee mugs, key chains, and other gifts for their family and friends on their own – definitely a learning and growing experience for your child.

Book Fair

In collaboration with Scholastic, Sandburg provides a week-long book fair where kids and parents can purchase grade-level appropriate books.  This event is a favorite among our kids.

Teacher Appreciation Week

An Attitude of Gratitude, one of the key Sandburg values.  This week is a time to say thank you to our teachers and staff for all they do for our students.  It is also an important learning experience for the kids seeing everyone take time and money to say thank you.

Career Day

This event for our upper grades gives kids a little insight into the types of jobs adults do.  Accountants, doctors, auto mechanics, active duty military, SWAT team members and many others.


A capstone event for our 5th graders, Biztown allows these students to take on various roles in an economy and see how these roles interact.


Our major fundraiser of the year and one of the most exciting days for our students.

Back to School BBQ

A fun night to meet your child’s teacher and for your kids to see their friends again.  Enjoy a dinner prepared and served by volunteers, teachers, and staff. This is a great opportunity to meet other parents and the staff that will be with your child each day.

Bingo Night
