This latest edition of the Sanford Spotlight Newsletter includes a heartfelt editorial from a student who reflected on last week’s “swatting” event in Sanford High School’s online newspaper “The Spartan Times.” It also features an article on the Sanford High School Theater Company’s performance of ‘Clue’ last weekend titled ‘Resilient in the face of Challenges.’ As we head into the Thanksgiving break, we want to thank each of you for your resilience in the face of challenges and for your dedication, caring, and commitment to our students and each other. We have a lot to be grateful. Wishing you the very best of health and strength throughout the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope you are able to rest and enjoy the break. https://bit.ly/3V46rlZ
After an advisory committee studied the SHS/SRTC schedule for over a year, the Sanford School Committee voted on November 21st to institute a five-block schedule to begin in the 2023-2024 school year. This includes freshmen teaming/seminar, AP classes every other day, and electives for all students of all levels, including enrichments. Work is underway to implement these changes. Specific information will be shared later this winter prior to course selection.
The annual College and Career fair is underway at the Sanford High gym! More than 80 colleges and organizations, as well as all branches of the U.S. armed services are here. Students from SHS and SRTC are prepared!
