Principal’s Message

Dear Sandston Families and Visitors,
Welcome to the Sandston Elementary website! I am glad that you’ve taken the time to access us on the web. There are resources on the site for students, families, and visitors.  We post samples of learning from our classroom, announcements, our calendar, safety information and much, much more! We have an outstanding staff, wonderful students and families, and are proud to be a part of a community with a rich history and an exciting future.
I am also thrilled that Sandston is a Model School for 21st Century Learning. We serve as a “lighthouse” for innovative instruction for our school division and beyond. At Sandston, curriculum is integrated and grounded in real life applications that connect with our students’ lives. Our students take ownership for their learning, assessment and personal growth and there is a focus not only on the acquisition of skills, but on our students’ ability to make meaning of what they are learning and to transfer knowledge to new and complex problems. Read more about our instructional model by clicking the “Learning at Sandston” heading on our home page and by taking a look at samples of learning here on the blog. I know you’ll see that every day is a great day for learning at Sandston!
Families, we appreciate all your support and involvement. If you have suggestions for additions to our website, please let us know. If you are a visitor to our site, we hope you enjoy your virtual time with us and invite you to give us a call if you have any questions. Have a wonderful day!
Mrs. Kim Powell, Principal
