Stewart Stampede

September 1, 2022

From the Principal

Dear Stewart Families,

This school year is off to a great start. Students came onto campus ready for a new school year. I am so very proud of our kids. They are amazing kids and we are excited that we're able to work with them each day.

We have so many wonderful activities planned for this year. Please be sure to mark your calendars so you don't miss anything. All our grade levels will be planning their field trips soon and we will get that information out to you as soon as possible.

Please be sure to check out the new PTO webpage. You will find additional information there about our wonderful and supportive PTO and the activities they have planned. You will be able to find out information about how you can get involved in one or more of the many activities we have planned.

We continue to focus on safety at Stewart. Please join us this Friday, September 2nd for our first PTO meeting. We will present information about safety protocols on campus and what you can do to play a part in how we continuously monitor what we do on campus to keep everyone safe. Don't forget to complete a background check if you want to come on campus and volunteer, read to a class, participate in Watch Dogs, chaperone on field trips or work in the library.

Next week, we will be starting a campus activity that is new for us. We will be reading a book as a campus. Every child and staff member will receive their very own copy of the book "Wonder." Our plan is to read the entire book before December. You can either read the book together or access pre-recorded chapters, read by members of our staff.

Each Wednesday, will be a "Wonder Wednesday." We will use this time to talk about the book and discuss what it means to show kindness. We hope you enjoy reading this book with your child. Our PTO is planning a movie night in December to watch "Wonder" after we have finished reading the book as a campus.

This year, our theme is "Wisdom Begins With Wonder." When we wonder about things, it creates an awareness in us to investigate things not only to find out which is right but also to know why it is so. We want our Mustangs to challenge themselves, ask questions, and to be life long learners.

We are all looking forward to a wonderful school year. We are looking forward to growing, learning, and discovering together. It's going to be a great year. Your teachers and our staff are here for your children. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher.

Thank you for your continued support.


Dr. Julie English

What Is An Accountability Rating?

Accountability ratings are based on performance on state standardized tests; graduation rates; and college, career, and military readiness outcomes. The ratings examine student achievement, school progress, and whether districts and campuses are closing achievement gaps among various student groups.

Stewart Elementary received an A rating for the 2021/22 school year. Stewart also received Distinctions in Math and in Post Secondary Readiness.

Picture Day!

September 15th is picture day. Students should come to school with their best smile!
