The Stallion Stampede

Janie Stark Elementary Parent Newsletter

January 9, 2022

Dear Stallion Families,

Welcome back and Happy New Year! I hope you all had a restful and relaxing holiday break with family and friends. We loved welcoming our Stallions back to school on Thursday last week!

As we start another exciting semester, please remember that students are considered tardy if they are not in their classrooms by 7:40 am.Now is the perfect time to get back into the school night routine: lay out clothes for the following day, make sure the backpack is ready, and get in bed at a reasonable time. By preparing the night before, the morning will run smoothly and there is less likely a chance that your child will be tardy to school. Starting the day on time helps your child to be prepared for a full day of learning.

Cheers to a healthy and safe Spring semester!

To the BEST of days,

Mrs. Putman


Congratulations to our Teacher of the 2nd Nine Weeks, Mrs. Chafin!
