Author Dan Gemeinhart is visiting Stayton Intermediate/Middle School!

Dan will be visiting our school on Friday, February 28th. He’d be happy to sign his books for anyinterested students. Books will not be for sale on the day of his visit...students wanting a

signed book will need to buy one ahead of time and bring it to school during Dan’s visit. His books are easy to find on Amazon. We made an Amazon Wish to make it easier to find his

books: Other options to buy books may be available. Please talk to our librarian, Mrs. Baxter.

This is a great chance for your student to meet and learn from an author. Please bring books to the school on February 28th to have them signed by Dan Gemeinhart. This event is sponsored by the Stayton Middle School Parent Teacher Club.


Yearbooks are available to purchase online at or in the school office. The yearbook ID code is 2041220. Order forms were sent home with students last week. The deadline to order is March 16.


Anyone who chaperones a field trip must have a background cleared. These usually take about a week to process. If you haven't already completed one and think you might be chaperoning a field trip, please complete one in the office or online on the NSSD website.


Parents of Almost-Freshmen: You're invited to join us at Stayton High School for Future Eagles Night on Tuesday, March 10 at 6:00 PM. We'll start with a presentation in the auditorium and then invite you to the gym, where you can explore the academics, activities, and athletics we have available. Teachers, counselors, coaches, and administrators will be available to answer your questions--which will come in handy as your students will be registering for their 9th grade classes later that week! We hope to see you and your student there.
