Stopher Newsletter, March 1st
From The Principal
Last week, students and staff shared reasons to be joyful here at Stopher. As you can see, there are many of them.
I hope to see (virtually) many of you next Thursday, March 10th at 7pm at the Stopher PTA General Body meeting via Zoom. I've enjoyed getting to know members of our PTA in the past weeks and am incredibly thankful for their support of Stopher!
Car Rider Line and Morning Arrival
- Do not park in the handicapped parking spots to drop off your student. This is disrupting and slowing down the line.
- Students must be signed in if they arrive after 9:05 a.m.
Shark Week is Coming!!
- Volunteers to organize and work a Color Run for one day of that week.
- Volunteers to help decorate the building and turn it into a shark infested water world! This is a great opportunity for dads with wood working skills to volunteer!
- Volunteers to create shark themed treats and crafts for their individual student's classroom.
- Volunteers to help for about one hour each morning of that week.
If you can volunteer, Click Here and Sign Up to give us an idea of what you would be interested in helping with ... then attend the meeting.
