Sandburg Middle School Social Studies Class Showcases Turn of the Century Museum
Sandburg Middle School’s 8th grade students from Mrs. Padberg’s social studies class have created a TURN of the CENTURY museum. This exhibit features artifacts, models, slide-shows, movies, and much more! All will be displayed at our “Night at the Museum” on Thursday March 23 in the Sandburg Library and Auditorium from 7-8:00 p.m. Parents, guardians and family members are invited to attend this event, showcasing the research and “curating” skills of Sandburg Middle School students.

The York High School Key Club is again sponsoring a “Soles for Kids” shoe drive and is asking for your support and assistance with this endeavor. Through the generosity of District 205 families, they have successfully collected over 8,000 pairs of shoes over the past six years. The drive will begin on Monday, March 6th and conclude on Friday, May 12th. Look for collection bins in our school foyers. Soles for Kids is a charity organization that collects gently used shoes and sends them to needy children and adults in Africa, as well as to Indian Reservations in the United States.
