Stateside Scoop

Week of October 9th-October 13th

Just a reminder....no school for students on Monday in observance of Columbus Day. We will see all of our Patriots on Tuesday!

Picture Day - October 10th

Picture day will be on Tuesday, October 10th for all students. Information was sent home with all Patriots. All students will be photographed this day (regardless of purchasing) as this will be the picture used for the yearbook.

Impact Aid Cards

Thank you to everyone who has returned their completed Impact Aid Cards. If you have yet to do so, please send them in ASAP. If you have misplaced the one that was sent home last week, please contact your teacher or Mrs. Shannon Whaley and we will provide you with a new one. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Kinder parents...

Just a reminder that the permission slips and money for the Mike's Farm fieldtrip are due on October 11th. The Kinder team sends their appreciation.

Parent Advisory Council update!

Our first Staff luncheon is going to be held on Wednesday, October 25th and will have a Halloween theme. See below for the opportunity to sign up to volunteer your cooking skills...or simply to donate an item to the luncheon.


Vendor applications have been posted on the Parent Advisory Council Facebook page (@STESPAC), the Stateside Facebook page (@STESPATRIOTS) as well on the Stateside website. If you know of any local vendors who would like to join us for this fantastic event, please share the information. We have multiple vendors who have already signed up. Please continue to share this opportunity if you know of anyone who would be interested.

Teacher conference season is upon us!

If you have not heard from your teachers already, you will be hearing from them soon about conferences. This is a great opportunity to discuss where your student is academically in their class and how we can help move them forward in their studies! We are looking forward to meeting with each and every Patriot family over the next few weeks.


On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we have STRIDE and Girls on the Run practice in the front of the building. For the safety of our students, we ask that parents signed up for conferences prior to 5:00, park in the far parking lot (near the cafeteria) to avoid driving in the kiss and go lane. We appreciate your assistance with this to keep our Patriots safe.
