Kindergarten - 2nd Grade Movie Night was Success!

Thanks to all the parents and students who made the STP K-2 Movie Night on January 29 a success. Many families enjoyed popcorn and Hotel Transylvania 2. We look forward to see more families for our Grades 3-5 Movie Night on Friday, February 5.

Math Information Night Video

Many parents who attended the Math Information Night on January 21 found this video to be helpful in explaining why math is taught differently in 2016 than it was "when we were kids." Hopefully, you will find this video helpful as well.

Please Help at Parent Pick Up

We need your help to keep this lane clear of traffic. As snow piles reduce the number of parking spots available in our parking lot and with cold temperatures and winter weather continuing to bother us, it is tempting to want to park in the bus lane in front of school or double park cars in the parking lot. During Parent Pick Up, the bus lane in front of school is for handicapped accessible buses and day care transportation only. If you are picking up your children after school, please park in the parking lot or on the street. Please do not park in the bus lane and please do not double park cars in the lot. Please be patient and help get all our students home safely.

Notes from the Office

  • REGISTRATION FEE BILLS - these were sent out again 3 weeks ago. Please pay your bill as soon as possible. If you need to pay small amounts monthly, that is okay too. We just want to make sure you get your bill down to $0 so you can take care of it on a yearly basis. Students may not be allowed to graduate if they have outstanding student fees. I know that seems like a long way off, but If you let those fees build up, it will be more difficult to pay in the long run. Thank you for your attention to this matter!
  • CHANGE IN PICK UP FOR YOUR STUDENT - if your child will be going home a different way than usual, please send a note in advance to your child's teacher.
  • CHANGE IN PHONE NUMBERS - if you have a change in one of your contact numbers, you can go in to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal to change those numbers or contact the Office at 414-541-0600.
