Help Us Win a Healthy Playground Makeover

Starry Elementary has been entered into the Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes! We can enter once a day every day until the sweepstakes close on March 25, 2016. Let's do this! ‪#‎starryshines‬

Starry's Wellness Challenge

After three-weeks, students in our school have:

  • Ate 562 servings of fruit
  • Ate 394 servings of vegetables
  • Exercised for 21,391 minutes
  • Traveled 220 miles

Colder Weather

With cold weather and snow (we go outside when the temperature, including the windchill, is above 0 degrees) in the forecast, please make sure your child has appropriate clothing to go outside! This includes a coat, gloves, hat, snow pants, and boots. Layers are good, too.

The Adventures of Beekle: The UnImaginary Friend

Mr. Ewald has been reading The Adventures of Beekle: The UnImaginary Friend to classes this month. Beekle is a story about friendship. Ask your child, what strategies could they use when meeting someone new that could be a potential friend.

The Marion Way - Golden Plate

Each day, in the lunchroom, the class that does the best job of exhibiting the Marion Way - being respectful, responsible, and honest - earns the Golden Plate!

Marion Spirit Day

Thanks to our awesome Parent Group, ALL of our students are receiving this awesome 'Follow the Marion Way' tee-shirt (pictured, above).

Therefore, we are declaring every Tuesday to be Marion Spirit Day - staff and students are encouraged (if they choose) to wear Marion, Starry, and/or red and gold clothing.

#TCT - Think College Thursdays!

Show your school spirit and help promote post-secondary education in our building by wearing clothing that supports your favorite college.

We believe that college and career readiness begins in elementary school. Therefore, we are encouraging everyone to wear their college shirt/sweatshirt or college color every Thursday.

Check-out our awesome bulletin board outside of our cafeteria that has minions from all staff and students stating the different reasons why we are thankful for our school.


Mr. Ewald would like you to join Parents!
