Dear Saklan Community,
I would like to start by thanking all of the wonderful grandparents and special friends that came out this morning for our annual event celebrating this important aspect of our community. The day was truly enjoyable and our students were thrilled to show off their campus, teachers and classmates, and engage in a fun activity with their guests.
I am happy to formally announce a new scholarship program that Saklan has instituted in memory of Sharon Reichow. Sharon, who passed away one year ago, was our 5th grade teacher for thirteen years and was one of the stellar teachers that contributed to the school’s growing reputation in the community. Much of the success of the Saklan middle school program can be attributed to the high level of preparation that was characteristic of the students that graduated from Sharon’s 5th grade class. In honor of her commitment and dedication to Saklan, we are launching the “Sharon Reichow Memorial Scholarship for New Middle School Students.” This scholarship will be available for new students who have not yet applied to the Saklan middle school for the 2018-19 school year, and who show high academic potential and commitment to the school’s mission.
We now go into our Spring Break, which I hope will be restful and re-energizing. Upon our return, we will have less than two months of school left, and in this time we have a number of big activities planned at Saklan. These include the Middle School Musical, the Spring Arts Festival, Book Fair, Family Fun Night, and Graduation.
Have a great Spring Break!
