Red Storm Forecast Stonybrook IA/MS

Week of: December 2nd

Happy December!

Dear Stonybrook Families,

This week and next your students will be taking the NWEA test. We take NWEA three times a year to gauge where students are academically and we use the data to drive our instruction decisions.

Please remind your students to come to school in dress code; jeans or khakis and any shirt that is free of inappropriate language or images that covers the upper body appropriately. Students are not allowed to wear hoodies in the building. They also can not wear house shoes. Also remind your students that cell phones and ear buds should not be visible in the school building.

We have 15 school days until break and we are looking forward to having a great time learning and continuing to build relationships with you and your students.

Mr. Smith

Morning Drop-off

As the weather becomes increasingly colder, it is important to review our morning drop-off procedures.

  • Students are not able to enter the building until 8:35 a.m. This is the earliest we can guarantee appropriate adult supervision.
  • Students should NOT be dropped off prior to 8:35 a.m. each day; if they are, they will be standing in cold temperatures until staff supervision arrives and students are let in to the cafeteria.

DC Trip

Dear 8th grade Families,

Please continue to make payments on the Washington D.C trip.

Jason Smith, Principal

High Ability Program

Warren's High Ability Program is designed to meet the unique academic needs of gifted and talented students. The curriculum in these classes is differentiated and faster paced and students will be working above grade level if they qualify. As a district, we look at all students in grades 1, 4, 6 and 8 to see if they qualify for the following school year based on eligibility criteria. Parent recommendations are considered along with achievement scores when determining placement in high ability. More detailed identification information can be found here. If you would like to complete a recommendation for the broad based planning committee to consider you can do so here 2020-2021 High Ability Parent Recommendation Form The parent recommendation form will be open until January 31, 2020.

Dress Code Change

Parents, we have made an adjustment to our dress code. Students no longer have to wear a collared shirt. Students can wear any full length shirt with a modest neckline that is free of inappropriate images and language. Pants still need to be khakis or jeans, no sweat pants, yoga pants or leggings. That is the only change to the dress code.

The new version is in the link below.

Flu symptoms may include fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and muscle aches. The best way to protect your family from new influenza strains is to get vaccinated each year.

Please stay healthy during the coming Holiday Season by using good handwashing techniques and keeping the following areas germ free in your home:

1) Telephones (have you cleaned your cell phone lately?)

2) Appliances such as a refrigerator and microwave.

3) Faucets
