Stone Bank School

Reaching Out ~ May 25,2018

From Mrs. Davies

Dear Stone Bank Families:


May has been a busy month at Stone Bank. The month kicked off with Teacher Appreciation Week. Thank you to our PTO and the many parents who went the extra mile to recognize our amazing teaching staff. They loved all of the attention you showered over them.


Thank you to Mrs. Oman and the many volunteers who helped out with our recent book fair! This year we invited grandparents to have lunch with their grandchildren and then visit our book fair. We welcomed over 150 grandparents that day! Thank you to all of our grandparents for supporting our school through their book fair purchases. An extra big THANK YOU to Mr. Blaha, Mrs. Taubenheim and Mrs. Seonbuchner for setting up the cafeteria to accommodate our guests and serving them lunch with a smile!


Hopefully, you were able to attend one of the recent concerts and the art walk. Our students are certainly a talented group! Hearing them sing, play their instruments or express themselves artistically is so fun! Thanks to Mr. Ktorides, Mr. Lovas, and Ms. Richardson for their tireless energy and dedication to our kids!


Have you seen our new garden by the entrance to school? Thank you to Becky Baugh for her landscape design skills, Jeff Serak, Brenda Woodward, Ray (the Woodward’s foreign exchange student), Mary Eigenfeld (Becky's Mom) and Heather Smith for helping install the new plants.


Earlier this week, you should have received an email inviting you to participate in three task forces (Strategic Planning, Communication, and Curriculum) that will kick off in June. These task forces have been formed as a result of your feedback from our recent parent survey. Some have notified us that their email went to their spam folder. If you did not receive the email, please check your spam folder. If it is not there, please contact the main office so that we can get that information to you right away.


Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Davies

Those with tickets will be able to use them to purchase snacks, drinks, snow-cones, crafts and dunk tank throws.
