The Stoney Creek News

Growing kind hearts & minds will inspiring personal success!

From the Principal

Dear Families,

It is my very favorite month because we celebrate reading and all the adventures that you can have in a book. The staff has organized several daily activities, as well as our upcoming Family Activity Night. It is a combination of Reading and Leader in Me with lots of prizes, games and lessons to encourage the love to Read, Lead and Succeed. Watch for more information to come soon for the evening of March 26th. We encourage all of you to attend so please return the RSVP’s so we can plan accordingly.


Thank you to our PTO for hosting Kevin Kammeraad and his crew for a fun full day of celebrating reading. It was great to hear how an author starts a book and where he keeps his ideas. He encouraged all students to journal and doodling begins the process. He will be at several libraries this spring and summer.


Our PTO has graciously offered to host another Book Fair at Stoney Creek and we are looking forward to adding more and more books to classrooms. We have several mystery readers coming to visit our school and share their favorite books with our kids. Some include, Mr. Washburn, Deputy Brown, Mrs. Keur, Representative Bill Huizenga, some parents, and myself.


Remember: Attendance is KEY for success and we need your help in getting your learner to school every day so instruction can occur daily! Our next round of assessments will take place after Spring Break and it is important that we have all students present.


We are preparing for our Kindergarten Round-up in April so if you know of any young children that are school age, please share our information so we can sign up those students to begin their educational journey with success!


Thank you for sending us your very best!

Tiffany Jackson
