Stayton Elementary School
May Cheetah News
Wow, I am amazed at how fast this year has flown by as the final weeks of school are approaching quickly. Please keep your eye out for communication regarding our many upcoming events. Every grade level has an upcoming field trip, there will be celebrations, end of the year assemblies, our annual art show, field day and family BBQ.
This time of the year is very exciting and fun for staff and students, but can sometimes bring stress and uncertainty as students begin thinking about who their teacher will be next year, what room they will be in, and what they will do without their friends over the summer. As a staff we will work hard to support students, ease their transition to summer and next year, and set them up for success. I hope you enjoy the rest of this year with us.
3rd Grade Smarter Balanced Assessment
All third grade students began taking the new Smarter Balanced Assessment this week. Testing is scheduled to continue through May. You can help your student be prepared by making sure they get plenty of rest, are at school on time, and by giving them positive support and encouragement.
Registration for 2019-20
A new travel card will need to be filled out and collected during Open House Night which will be held towards the end of August. Check the school website later this summer for the date.
