We had a great Kindness themed spirit week here at Stetson. Each day the students showed their commitment to Kindness by having the option to wear theme based outfits each day. We also had daily challenges to "think" and "act". Please ask your child about their experiences this week. Lastly, students and teachers enjoyed participating with these random acts of kindness.
Our goal is for students to transfer the skills they learned this week to other school related experiences. In order to do this, I am asking for parents to continue this conversation at home. It is important to reiterate an emphasis on kindness and empathy toward peers inside the classroom and outside (especially on social media). Our biggest challenge this year has been to remind students to be respectful to one another with their words. Our goal is to ensure that all students of Stetson feel welcome, safe, and respected while they are with us.
Have a great weekend,

It is Stetson’s mission to help all students maintain passing grades, however, if a student is failing two or more academic subjects, or one academic subject, and two unified arts classes, they will be placed on our ineligibility list. Students who are on the ineligibility list are unable to participate in any extracurricular sport/activity. A report is generated every Thursday to determine eligibility status for the following week.
Dress Code Reminder
Please help us in reminding our students to follow our dress code policy. These include crop tops (mid-drift showing), pajama pants, slippers, and wearing hoods inside the school building. As our warm weather approaches, let's make sure our students are dressed appropriately for the school setting. Students who continue to violate the dress code will receive a consequence of after-school detention.
Cell Phone Reminder
Our personal cell phones are not permitted to be used during school hours in the educational setting. Please review the policy below with your student.
Spring is almost here and Stetson PTO is looking forward to some FUN! We are selling Hershey Park tickets (good any day the park is open in 2022) as a fundraiser during the month of March. Tickets are only $43 each and will be delivered as soon as we get them sometime in mid-April. All the details are on the link below. Questions can be directed to email@example.com
Thank you for your consideration and support.
A small thing we can do for our teachers and staff is to provide some treats to show our gratitude. We have lots of open spaces on our teacher snack bowl signup. Please take a look and see if you can help. THANK YOU to all who have already signed up and participated in this act of teacher/staff gratitude and appreciation!
Thank you to everyone that came out to support Pizza Peddler Dine and Donate! Look for details on our next one in April.

Any kid, any age. Tell them you see them work hard. Whether we're 5 or 15 or 50, knowing that people in our circles value hard work teaches us to love a challenge and feel good about ourselves. For kids, it also increases their commitment to school. #bonus Learn more and claim your Resilience Building Action Plan at wcctc.org/resilience-3 #wcyouthmatter
