    We are thrilled to announce that the Sand Hill Elementary  “Greet-n-Treat” will be back on December 12, 2014! After          you drop off your child for school, pull up to the orange        cones with your dog and you will receive a bag of homemade treats for your dog. These special treats will be made and packaged with love by Ms. Kelly Tankersley’s class. In        addition to giving out treats, we will also be participating            in a few community service projects and need your help!
