    Sandy's Family
    I have been married to my husband James since 1995 and we have two children. My oldest is currently a junior at JHS and my youngest is currently a ninth grader at JHS. Both of our children are very involved in activities - they have both been in Cross Country, Speech and Track and our youngest is involved in theatre and Youth in Government (through the YMCA) as well. Academics are very important in our family, but we also believe a well-rounded student includes being involved in extracurricular activities. Our whole family enjoys reading and having lively discussions - whether it's at the dinner table, in the car, or pretty much anywhere. We can also be found playing cards, hiking, or having fun with our cat, Muppet, and our guinea pig, Saphira.
