SANISLO SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS 2014-15
We hope you are enjoying summer. 
Here at Sanislo we are already planning for a great next school year and know families will also be looking ahead with us. Here is the list of school supplies we know your students will need to bring with them when back-to-school time rolls around in September.
Summer of Learning Underway
Join us Tuesday July 29th at 9:00 when ReaderstoEaters publisher Phillip Lee will visit the summer program to see how the reading/writing/growing summer of learning kids have been writing their own books. More info on our library page.

Even if you missed our party (pictured at right) the Seattle Public Library has a "Summer of Learning" underway throughout the city. Keep reading all summer long to help prevent "summer slide" and encourage strong habits. 

Each Sanislo students who participate in the SPL's  "Tune In: Summer of Learning" program earns a free book and family pass to the Burke Museum as well as contributes to a sizable donation to our school library through the ongoing Seattle Public Library/Public School Collaboration Grant. 

More information is available on the Sanislo Library webpage and newsletters.

National Library Report Notes Sanislo and SPL Collaboration
      Our school and public library partnership received mention in the American Library Association's " State of America's Libraries Report 2014" released for National Library Week. This is the second year in a row that something about our "little school with big ideas"  has been featured in this national report and points to the exciting opportunities available @library!

     Not mentioned in the report, but  "on deck" for Sanislo students is the upcoming summer of learning opportunities available at SPL. This expanded version of the Summer Reading program will bring summertime science, math and technology experiences to branch libraries. Our local children's librarian "Ms Bea" will come to Sanislo on June 9th to share with classes how the program will work. 

      To help promote this variety of summer learning -and reading- activities our collaboration grant will reward students for participation  and also "earn" additions to our school library collection.  The best way to stay informed on this exciting FREE summer learning is go to your local library and drop Mr Seasholes a note at clseasholes@seattleschools.org so he can keep you in the SPL summer learning loop.

Common Core State Standards Parents Info
Information about the Common Core State Standards is available for parents in short handouts by clicking on links for English, Chinese, Spanish, and Somali translations.  Further information is also found at http://www.corestandards.org/. Sanislo staff are undergoing math and English Language Arts professional development specific to CCSS implementation. Mr. Seasholes is helping teach a CCSS class for district teacher librarians. Ask any of our staff if you have questions, there's much to learn-together!
