The Stallion Stampede
Janie Stark Elementary Parent Newsletter
September 12, 2021
Dear Stallion Families,
It has been a very smooth start to the school year and we continue to be impressed with how well our Stallions are embracing the transition back into the classrooms. While it took a little longer than normal this year, we have finally hit our stride as a campus. The majority of our systems and programs are up and running and the students are settling into their normal day to day routine!
Thank you to everything you do as parents to support your children and Stark Elementary! Please feel free to contact us at anytime if you or your child needs anything.
To the BEST of days,
Wednesday is Dot Day!
All students are invited to wear polka dots on Wednesday! Teachers will be doing activities that relate to the book "The Dot" and encouraging our Stallions to be creative and courageous.
Picture Day is Friday!
Fall Picture Day is this Friday, September 17th! Fall pictures are non-uniform, so students may wear any school appropriate outfit on Friday for Picture Day.
Order forms for pictures will be coming home this week. You can send the form in with your child or order online using the link below.
