Principal's Message​

Some sunny words of appreciation to all the amazing teachers at Soleado . . .

Thank you for your guidance, friendship, and even discipline. I have learned that I am strongest when I recognize my weaknesses and how I might best develop those parts of my character. Thank you for taking the time to be my friend. Thank you for creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing, and room for making mistakes along the way. I am grateful to have you as a guide who leads by example. Thank you for sharing your gift of teaching with us!

Sending a special thank you to the teachers at Soleado. We appreciate all that you do for our young Suns!

School Supplies for Next Year

2018-2019 Soleado School Supply Program
Time to pre-purchase your 2018-2019 School Supplies
At the beginning of every school year, students are asked to bring in a variety of school and classroom supplies. This list includes general use items such as pencils, pens, specialty paper, materials for art projects, folders, etc. We also use the supply funds for Scholastic Weekly Readers, agendas, and many other items that your child will be using throughout the school year.

We understand that it can be difficult to shop for all of these items at the beginning of the school year, so we take care of the work for you . . .

The Soleado School Supplies Program offers the opportunity for parents to pre-purchase the yearly school supplies now. This includes all back-to-school supplies as well as the materials mentioned above that your student will need during the school year. This means you aren't running around looking for those hard to get oil pastels, folders, pencil sharpeners, etc. . . . on the teachers' list! 

We will do it for you!
To assure that your child's supplies will be waiting for them in the classroom on the first day of school, pre-orders are being taken now. 
Please have your donation in by June 5th. 

Total cost per student: $65 (K-5)
($40 Student Classroom Supplies $20 Grade Level Supplies  $5 Student Scholastic Subscriptions)
