Wolf Pack Press, January 26th

With your enthusiastic sponsoring of our dedicated readers, we didn't just reach our goal, we more than doubled it. Our goal was $8,100, but sponsors have raised over $22,000! You blew us away.

Our students have far surpassed their collective meeting goal of 195,000 minutes; the grand reveal of minutes-read will happen Thursday during the celebration at school. We are very confident they will be visited by a local Super Hero!

If you didn't get a chance to see this last week, here is the delightful transmission we received from Word Girl encouraging our kids to Read! Read! Read!

And if that makes you curious about fun things to do in subzero weather, here is Mr. Schrankler in action!

Volunteers Needed: Online School Tours

It's time to pick a great St. Paul Public School! Prospective families are now touring schools to find the right fit for their families. St. Anthony Park Elementary will be hosting a virtual Open House as well as virtual tours for prospective families. We would love to have current SAP families onboard to answer questions and connect with new families at these virtual events.

We need one staff person and 1-2 parent/guardian volunteers for each session. For the Open House, we are also looking for family representatives who speak Somali, Hmong, and Spanish to connect with prospective families. Please select dates and time and sign up!

Virtual School Tours (On Zoom)

Do you know families who are deciding where to send their prospective Elementary students? Please let them know about the upcoming opportunities to check out our school. All tours and open house this year are being held online on Zoom. During tours, the group will view a "video walkthrough" tour, have a short presentation about our school by Principal Karen Duke, and have the chance to ask questions. Parents and guardians of current students are present at each tour to share what they love about our school. Please join one of our online tour sessions. No registration is needed.
