Stopher Newsletter, February 22nd
From The Principal
I hope our students enjoyed their extended weekend. Our staff has been spending the past two days meeting with families for conferences and connecting with colleagues for professional learning. While we enjoy these times, our building feels empty without our Sharks, and we are excited to welcome them back tomorrow!
Today, I shared with staff some of my first impressions of Stopher. I have loved watching the excitement and smiles of students when they walk in our building and the encouragement they offer one another. Our teachers find ways to engage with students from the moment they walk in until the moment they leave. Even when we have to be patient for our busses, you will see dedicated teachers out in the hallways with students playing games and making them smile. This is truly a joyful community. When our students return to school tomorrow, they will be greeted with a bulletin board with examples that bring our staff members joy here at Stopher. We will invite students to share their joy as well.
Thank you for your continued support and warm welcome to our school community.
