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. Stewart Mustangs are amazing!

We have so many wonderful activities planned for this year. Please be sure to mark your calendars so you don't miss anything.

Please be sure to check out the 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. Don't forget to complete a background check if you want to come on campus and volunteer, read to a class, participate as a Watch Dog, chaperone on field trips, or work in the library.

We are all looking forward to a wonderful school year. We excited to be 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.

The A rating is based on the results of the STAAR assessment that students completed in April/May of 2023. Our students and teachers worked so hard to master the state curriculum in order to achieve this high rating.

2. Mid-drift and halter tops are not allowed. Students should be able to raise their arms without the mid-drift showing.

3. Muscle shirts are not allowed.

4. Spaghetti straps or straps that are not at least the width of two adult fingers are not allowed.

8. Undergarments should not be visible.

Teachers and staff monitor adherence to the dress code.

If parents are unable to come to the campus with a change of clothes, the campus will provide the student with a pair of shorts and a t-shirt for the day.

We have seen a few girls wearing make-up and some shorts that are too short. We have not said anything yet. Students will be asked to remove any make-up they wear to school.

Congratulations to Melissa Burrington - Special Education


The Positivity Project is a school-wide program that teaches students about the character strengths that everyone possesses. This helps students become more self-aware and empathetic – leading to more positive relationships and a more positive school culture. This positive culture allows teachers to focus on teaching and students to focus on learning. Each week your student will focus on a different character "strength".

Each Sunday evening you will receive information about the strength your child will be discussing during the week. Please be sure to ask you children about this strength. It makes for great dinner conversation.

By joining the Stewart PTO, you’re not only supporting school programs and events, but you’re also gaining a voice within our school. Only members may vote on PTO issues. PTO Meetings are the first Friday of every month at 9:00 a.m. and are available in person and via Teams.

Your membership dues are also important to helping fund our programs and goals for the school year.

Stretched thin on time? Don’t feel like you have time for another time draining obligation? Joining the PTO is supporting our school, not committing to monthly meetings and volunteering. Although, we’d love to have you!

One School, One Book

On September 20, all students will receive a copy of "The One and Only Ivan" with a reading schedule. The goal of this program is to sit down as a family and read together every week and promote a connection between reading at home and school. This book will be read at home, and students will have a chance to answer trivia questions at school and earn prizes on Ivan Fridays.

Thank you all of our generous sponsors !
