Janie Stark Elementary Parent Newsletter

January 16, 2022

Dear Stallion Families,

Thank you for working with us this week as our staff and students were impacted by positive COVID cases. It truly takes a partnership during difficult times to maintain the health and safety of our community.

Please continue to stay in touch with us regarding positive COVID cases in your home. Please also know that we are taking extra steps at school to clean, disinfect, and mitigate the spread of COVID on campus.

Together WE CAN work together to get through this recent surge and retun to a sense of normalcy at Stark!

To the BEST of days,

Mrs. Putman

100th Day of School!

Next Wednesday, January 26th, we will be celebrating the 100th day of school! Each classroom will be doing activities based around numbers and combinations to 100.

We invite all students to decorate and wear a t-shirt representing the number 100 by gluing, drawing, or sticking 100 objects to the t-shirt (this will need to be done at home if your child chooses to participate). OR Students may dress like they are 100 years old!

Participation is completely optional. If they choose to create and decorate a t-shirt or dress like a 100-year old, they may wear it to school on Wednesday, January 26th. Please feel to be creative with your child!
