Growing kind hearts & minds will inspiring personal success!

From the Principal

Dear Families,

What crazy weather we are having this winter, and we know not having school means many changes for our families. We encourage you to continue teaching your child in a variety of ways while they are not in the classroom. Some examples include reading books together, playing games that may require counting numbers on a dice or adding points together, writing a letter to Mother Nature. There are so many different things you can do to support their brainpower to be able to help them focus when we return. We appreciate every second you spend with your student engaging them in some manner.

We are excited about our 100th day of school and knowing that together we are 100 days smarter, 100 days into our goals, 100 days with friends, and 100 days of good choices. May the rest of our school year be just as wonderful. As we return to school from our snow days we will revisit our goals and we are establishing new ones moving into the next month.

Kindergarten Round-up is just around the corner and we look forward to welcoming the new group of Stoney Creek Panthers into our beautiful school. If you know of any 4 or 5 year olds, please share the information with them as well. The best compliment you can give to our loving staff is to invite your friends to come learn and grow with us. Please visit our website for more details and sign up for times as well. Our informational night is planned for April 10, 2019 at 6:00 for our Spanish Speaking families and 6:30 for all other families.

Have a terrific week!

Tiffany Jackson
