National Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th - October 15th. It celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South Americas.
This year's theme is Latinos: Driving Prosperity, Power, and Progress in America. It pays tribute to the immense economic and political strides Hispanics have made in the United States. At Sudie we are proud to learn, appreciate and celebrate the rich diversity of our Hispanic and Latino Lions.
This week we highlight two events to celebrate and invite you to participate this Saturday, September 23rd: Sudie Loteria and the 2nd Annual Latinidad Festival in Annette Strauss Square
Please park in BACK of the school where
the gates are open on Catawba Street. See you Saturday!!
Meet Your Grade Level Reps
Did you know that each grade has two parent leads who work to enhance communication and build community? Grade Level Reps are volunteer positions that are coordinated through the PTA to organize grade-level events, assist with field trip support, act as a liaison to the grade-level teacher lead, and organize parent volunteers as needed.
They also play a big part in reiterating important, timely info to make sure it isn't overlooked. This year's grade level reps are listed below. You may recognize their names from posting in your grade level GroupMe. If you ever need clarification on any info, they are a great place to start.
4th: Stephanie Dolph & Kay Wood
5th: Liz Johnson & Elena Richey
6th: Lindsay Goldapp & Nikki Hurston
7th: Melissa Cunningham & Kristine Osborn
8th: Melanie Davis & Kristy Dixon
Bins will be located in the front office, and students are welcome to deliver items to them!
Want to Help On or Off Campus?
Please fill out this Google form to let us know your interest and availability. Your info will be added to a database of helpers and when help is needed we'll contact volunteers on this list first.
