Stratford PTA Walk-A-Thon
We are happy to announce the kickoff of our annual Walk-a-thon fundraiser! This is a great opportunity for our students, families, and community members to help raise money for PTA sponsored events such as field trips, club celebrations, appreciation days, and grade level events. Our goal this year is to raise 10,000.
Students who raise the most money will have an opportunity to receive generous prizes provided by our PTA, community members, teachers, and administrative staff such as gift cards, food prizes, and students will also have fun opportunity to tape an administrator to the wall, spray silly string on an administrator and make your own ice cream sundae with Principal Taborn.
Please review the fliers for more information including registration.

Charge iPads and MacBooks Daily
We want our students to be successful every day at school. To ensure their success, we need for their devices to be charged and ready to go, beginning with their advisory class. Please make sure your student has their case, device, and charger each day to make sure it is protected and can be recharged as needed throughout the school day.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
