Help Us Win a Healthy Playground Makeover

Starry Elementary has been entered into the Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes! We can enter once a day every day until the sweepstakes close on March 25, 2016. Let's do this! ‪#‎starryshines‬

Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great

Mr. Ewald started and will continue reading Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great to classes last week. The message from the book comes across as everybody having special strengths, and togetherness can often maximize these strengths.

Colder Weather

With cold weather and snow in the forecast, please make sure your child has appropriate clothing to go outside! This includes a coat, gloves, hat, snow pants, and boots. Layers are good, too.

Marion Spirit Day

Thanks to our awesome Parent Group, ALL of our students are receiving this awesome 'Follow the Marion Way' tee-shirt (pictured, above).

Therefore, we are declaring every Tuesday to be Marion Spirit Day - staff and students are encouraged (if they choose) to wear Marion, Starry, and/or red and gold clothing.

#TCT - Think College Thursdays!

Show your school spirit and help promote post-secondary education in our building by wearing clothing that supports your favorite college.

We believe that college and career readiness begins in elementary school. Therefore, we are encouraging everyone to wear their college shirt/sweatshirt or college color every Thursday.

Check-out our awesome bulletin board outside of our cafeteria that has minions from all staff and students stating the different reasons why we are thankful for our school.


Mr. Ewald would like you to join Parents!

To receive messages via text, text @starryelep to 81010

Learn more about Remind

I plan to use Remind as an efficient communication tool to share short messages that pertain to all of the parents at Starry.
