Principal's Message

Greetings Sanford family and friends! I am extremely excited for this coming school year! We are ready to start with a fresh outlook on learning at Sanford Elementary and I look forward to the opportunity to meet each of you and build relationships with our students. 


As the restrictions of “the Covid era” subside, we are planning many activities for our parents and community members to be involved in throughout the coming school year. When school starts in August, we will implement a new system of positive behavior support and work on building that lasting Panther PRIDE! Our Reading and English Language Curriculum ARC will get a fresh new start, too! We are all excited about the team we are building at Sanford and are anxiously awaiting the return of our amazing students in the fall!


I appreciate the warm welcome that I have received as I transition into the VAISD family. As I have made the transition to VA, I am enjoying the relationships that I am already building and look forward to a bright future in VAISD! Be sure to check social media during the summer and look for important announcements, supply lists, and student enrollment information. Don’t forget to make reading a priority this summer!


Can’t wait to see you all on Meet the Teacher Night (8/9/21 at 5:30 pm) and on August 12!


Proud to be your principal,

Mrs. Bietz
