Stewart Stampede

November, 2022

Stewart Stampede

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.

Individual goals:<$125

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.

Below are the run times for our Stewart Stampede. We hope you can join us for this fun day!

Interim Assessments

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:

November 18

November 18th is the Friday before the Thanksgiving break. This year we will celebrate this day with a small event during PE classes. Students will have a Turkey Trot around the perimeter of the gym. Students will be encouraged to wear turkey shirts, hats and socks this day.

This decision was made because we know our families have put a great deal of work into preparations for the Stewart Stampede. We have however, scheduled holiday parties in December. We will communicate specific times after the Thanksgiving break.

Holiday Store

The holiday store will be open after the Thanksgiving holidays.

Dates for the holiday store are December 5 - 9. The PTO will send home more information soon.
