Message From the Administration and Staff

We appreciate your patience and understanding during the coronavirus pandemic. As we move forward with the virtual and print-based learning pathways we want you to know that we love each and every one of our students and miss them terribly. Their education is of utmost importance to us.


As our partners, we need your support and patience because there is a lot of new learning ahead for all. Not everything will go as expected at first and that is okay. We will practice patience, perseverance, and the "Power of Yet." Things will roll out slowly allowing everyone to get comfortable and create a structure that works in their home.


We promise you our very best as we learn to balance working from home and home schooling our own children. We promise all students will receive lessons that meet the expected rigorous instruction of the Common Core Grade Level Standards. We promise you support, patience, perseverance, and the "Power of Yet" as we acknowledge you are also learning to work from home while home schooling your children.


As we embark on this “distance learning” let us all offer each other grace. We all love the students of Stoneleigh Elementary and we are all doing the best we can each and every day.

Additional information will be coming with specifics about the continuity of learning for each grade. The entire Stoneleigh Staff is participating in virtual training and professional develop sessions each day this week in order to prepare a successful launch next week.


By providing each other with support and looking for silver linings, we the Stoneleigh Family will get through.


Thank you.

Hello Students:


Like you we are staying home. We have used the time to catch up on chores and hope you have been able to help at home as well. While at home temporarily, you can follow up on our last school lessons by watching the weather on TV (iPad, iPhone) and making notes about what you have learned each day about the weather. You can check the temperature each day. What is the humidity? You can make a chart to keep a record. When you return to school, we can give a full report using everyone’s data.


We miss each one of you and cannot wait to see you again – hopefully soon.


STAY HEALTHY!

Mrs. Hare and Mrs. Hester
