A Message From Dr. Hinson


Hello Stuber Families,


It has been a great week of learning and growing at Stuber! We are seeing students meet goals, make new friends, care for others, and so much more! Children have been so excited as they visited the library to pick out their wish list for the book fair. Please remember to send your student with their money next week or order online with them!


We are excited to begin end of the year activities so make sure you don't miss a thing by reading this newsletter and following our school's Facebook page.


Your Proud Principal,

Dr. Hinson

Kids Heart Challenge Results

During the month of February, our students participated in the Kids Heart Challenge. They learned about ways to have a healthy heart all throughout the week and raised money. We are proud to report that our school raised..... $12,134.25!!!


Thank you to Coach Jones, Knowles, and Gabriel for leading such a great cause!

Attendance Matters

Please be mindful of absences and tardies. The accrual leads to missed instruction, stress on students to make up work as well as teachers to ensure understanding, and overall difficulties with forming habits necessary for success in secondary grades. Additionally, students who receive special services like speech or dyslexia miss needed services to close learning gaps. If you need strategies to help build better habits, please reach out to administration or our school counselor, Mrs. Clawson.


  • School starts at 7:45. This means students should be in their classroom at that time-not pulling up to the front door of the school.
  • ALL early dismissals must be completed by 2:15.
  • All absences should be reported to our attendance line.

STUBER HOUSES RULE!!

Every Monday is a celebration at Stuber. One way we celebrate is wearing our House shirts and/or colors. We are so proud of our March House Winner - Fomento! We look forward to seeing who will be the April winner on April 26th. Make plans to tune in via Facebook Live that morning to experience all the fun! Also head over to our Facebook page to watch the House Assembly. The reveal is always so much fun!!!


This week we focus on Essential 20: Show Self-Control.
