    Dear Sandpipers,

    Wow! What a great year of learning, memories, growing and fun! Thank you for the important part you play in making our school the very best place it can be. Every team member has an important role and together we make up the Solana Pacific family!

    Thank you to our teachers and staff for providing a structured and safe learning environment. Our students are learning in innovative ways and achieving amazing results thanks to all of your time, planning and dedication. Technology implementation, 21st century learning, STREAM and NGSS lessons, and the 8 Habits are just a few of the areas we have helped our students to grow and learn this year.

    Our parents and community members support our team with financial support through the Solana Beach School Foundation. Thank you to our PTO and all of our parents for supporting innovative programs as well as for your time volunteering in classrooms and throughout our school. We had a blast at the Pancake Breakfast, Sandpiper Sprint, Heritage Night, Movie Nights, the Donut Breakfast, Sandpiper Quest, Field Day and much, much more! We couldn’t do it without you!

    Finally, a big thank you to our Solana Pacific students! Their hard work, excellent effort, and kindness make our school very special. Special kids fill this special school! Our Sandpiper leaders have demonstrated P.R.I.D.E. and the 8 Habits!

    I am so proud of our 6th graders who are heading on to the next phase in their education at Middle School. We know that with their great ideas and enthusiasm for learning as well as their effort, they are prepared and will be successful! We wish you the very best and know you will make us proud!

    I am excited to meet our new 4th grade families in the Fall. The 3rd grade students from Carmel Creek and Solana Highlands REALLY enjoyed their day here with us last Friday and we loved having them! We look forward to welcoming back our fabulous 4th and 5th grade students as 5th and 6th grade Sandpiper Leaders. Enjoy summer together with family and friends! Rest, relax, rejuvenate and READ! See you on August 23rd at 10:15 a.m. for Mini Open House.

    Sincerely,
    Elisa Fregoso,
    Principal

    The Solana Beach School District has put together a number of resources for a summer of fun learning this year! Please visit our Summer Fun Learning web page, where you will find a variety of STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activities as well as links to DreamBox Math and Overdrive (an online ebook library). 

    Sora Summer Reading Program
    Summer in Solana Beach presents an opportunity for students and families to relax and enjoy the sunshine while also continuing to find ways to learn while away from the classroom. We have an exciting reading service available through Sora, the student reading app, which provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading?

    This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in Sora for quick and easy unlimited access from June 6 – August 15, 2019. You can explore the title offerings and learn more about the program by clicking here: https://resources.overdrive.com/summer-read/.

    How does it work?
    Sora provides the quickest and easiest way to get started with digital titles from our school. Students can simply log in using school credentials and instantly access hundreds of eBooks and audiobooks on virtually any device. Get started today at https://soraapp.com or download the free Sora app for Android or iOS.
