Stateside Scoop

Week of January 11th-15th

What's going on this week at Stateside???

2016 has been fantastic so far at Stateside Elementary School. We have a lot of fun activities going on this month and are looking forward to each day with our Patriots.

Safety practices at Stateside - Practice intruder drill - January 11th

On Monday, January 11th, we will be holding a school wide practice intruder drill. The students have practiced with their teachers in their various class settings throughout the year, but we will be holding a school wide intruder drill at some point during the day on Monday. The staff and students are very well prepared for these mock situations because we practice them often. The safety of our students is of the upmost importance and we want to ensure we are taking all precautions to keep our Patriots safe.

Ms. McAvoy's class - In Math this week we learned about shapes using pretzels as the sides and marshmallows as the vertices.
