The Stallion Stampede

Janie Stark Elementary Parent Newsletter

May 8, 2022

Dear Stallion Families,

Thank you for helping make Teacher Appreciation Week last week so special for our staff! With all of the donated gift cards, each staff member was able to get 1-2 gift cards throughout the week! Receiving these gift cards was the highlight of the week for our staff!

We have STAAR testing this week for our 3rd-5th graders. If your child is testing this week, please be sure they get a good night's sleep, a healthy breakfast, and are on-time each day! This will help them feel relaxed and prepared to do their best each day.

To the BEST of days,

Mrs. Putman


STAAR Testing is this week

This week, our 3rd-5th graders will be taking the STAAR test. Please see schedule of testing below:

  • Tuesday, May 10th - 3rd-5th STAAR Math
  • Wednesday, May 11th - 3rd-5th STAAR Reading
  • Thursday, May 12th - 5th grade STAAR Science

Due to the amount of testing and the need to maintain a secure and quiet testing environment for our students, there will be no lunch visitors or volunteers this week. Thank you for your understanding and support!


Field Day

Field Day is Friday, May 20th! We are looking forward to a bigger and better Field Day this year now that we can have visitors and volunteers on campus again.

Interested in helping? Click here to sign up! Please remember, all volunteers must have complete a background check.

Our amazing PTA has also purchased a Field Day shirt for EVERY student! Your student will receive their shirt on the morning of May 20th. Thank you to our wonderful PTA for providing these shirts for all of our Stallions!


End of Year Awards Ceremonies

We are so excited to return to hosting our grade level End of Year Awards this May. Please mark your calendars now for your child's grade level awards. Parents and visitors will be able to attend. Your child's teacher will provide more information as the date gets closer.

For the safety of those with allergies, we ask that you do not bring balloons, flowers, or food to the awards. Please save those to give to your child at home. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe.
