On Friday, June 3, 2016, volunteers of Sabillasville Elementary School were honored with breakfast and a video made by all the students. It was a time to meet other volunteers who may be on different schedules.

The school qualified for a Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) certificate. This certificate is used when the Frederick County Board of Education discusses school closing, grant writing, and other decisions made for the local school.

To qualify for this certificate, a school must have twice the number of volunteer hours as there are students. Sabillasville Elementary needed 236 hours to qualify, but totaled 1,676—quite an accomplishment!

Each volunteer received a pin, along with a certificate designating their number of volunteer hours and signed by President of the Board of Education Brad Young and by Superintendent of Schools Theresa R. Alban.
