SHMS Weekly Info
March 2nd to 6th
Good Evening Stone Hill Students, Parents, and Staff,
Loudoun County Public Schools released the LCPS Annual Parent and Family Survey two weeks ago. The online survey was delivered to parents in a link via text message and email. The survey asks for feedback about the learning environment in your child's school to help staff in future planning. All survey responses are anonymous. The survey will be open through this Friday, March 6th. Thank you in advance for your feedback and support of SHMS!
Thank you to all our families who came out to support the PTO Skate Night. Also, thank you to those community members who joined us for our first ever Stone HIll Road Trip to the National Museum of the Marine Corps. Both events were amazing for our community!
The March PBIS word of the month is Generosity. We will be recognizing students during the month of March who are demonstrating generosity as our Students of the Month!
