Janie Stark Elementary Parent Newsletter

January 23, 2022

Dear Stallion Families,

Please continue to stay in touch with us regarding positive COVID cases in your home. Please also know that we are taking extra steps at school to clean, disinfect, and mitigate the spread of COVID on campus.

Together WE CAN work together to get through this recent surge and retun to a sense of normalcy at Stark!

To the BEST of days,

Mrs. Putman


100th Day of School!

THIS Wednesday, January 26th, we will be celebrating the 100th day of school! Each classroom will be doing activities based around numbers and combinations to 100.

We invite all students to decorate and wear a t-shirt representing the number 100 by gluing, drawing, or sticking 100 objects to the t-shirt (this will need to be done at home if your child chooses to participate). OR Students may dress like they are 100 years old!

Participation is completely optional. If they choose to create and decorate a t-shirt or dress like a 100-year old, they may wear it to school on Wednesday, January 26th. Please feel to be creative with your child!


Metrocrest Hygiene Drive!

Help us help our community! Janie Stark is collecting soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss and deodorant for Metrocrest Services.

Send in these items to your child's classroom teacher beginning next week, January 24th. The grade level with the most donations will get to pie Coach Goodloe, Coach Flores, Mr. Caplin, Mrs. Lopez, and several other staff members in the face!

We will collect your donations from January 24th - February 4th

Fitness Friday is Coming!

We are starting a new monthly tradition here at Stark. On one Friday each month, students will participate in "Fitness Friday" - running/walking laps around the school (similar to Turkey Trot). This is to encourage a love of physical activity and being outdoors!

Each class will be competing for a trophy each month! Parents are welcome to come join their child in the fun and run/walk laps around the school (no visitors inside the building, please). Each lap earned will go towards your child's class!

Our first Fitness Friday will be on Friday, February 4th! A schedule of times that each grade will participate will be shared soon. Please send your child with a water bottle and athletic shoes on this day.
