Our Stewart Stampede fundraiser wraps up on Friday, November 4 with our fun run and glow party! Thank you so much for your support! Our goal is to make this the main PTO fundraiser of the 2022-2023 school year. If we hit our goal, we will not host a spring fundraiser. Funds raised will be put toward building our outdoor pavilion and the many functions of Stewart PTO, such as field trips, school safety, technology, and school events. 10% of all funds raised will go directly back into our grade level funds for our teachers to utilize in classrooms.
School goal: $100,000
Due to the generosity of our sponsors, all students and staff members are receiving a shirt to wear on Friday. This shirt will be worn on field day in May too, so please hold on to these shirts.

3rd - 6th graders will be taking their math and reading Interim Assessments during the month of November. STAAR Interim Assessments are online assessments that align to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and that help educators monitor student progress and predict student performance on STAAR. The data from these assessments will help drive our instruction and truly understand what our students can do at this point in the school year. For more information from TEA, you can visit: https://tea.texas.gov/student-assessment/testing/staar/staar-interim-assessments
