2018-2019 School Year

Dear Stewartsville Families;

     I am so excited about this upcoming school year. We have worked hard all summer to get ready for a fantastic 2018-2019 school year. I want to share some of the exciting changes and programs with you this year.

     Many of you remember the “Positive Referral” program we began last year. Well, this year we are calling it the “Paws”itive Referral program!! It works the same way, referrals are given by the teacher and at their discretion when a student is caught displaying any act of kindness, effort in their work, or just being their awesome self. The teacher will give the office a “Paws”itive referral with the student name on it and the student will be mentioned on the morning announcements!! They will get their name on a “paw” posted on a bulletin board. At the end of each semester, we will collect the paws for a drawing and a prize will be rewarded to the lucky winner!!

     Please be sure to read the student handbook for some important Wellness changes. In an effort to keep our students in the best health, a list of approved foods may be served at class parties. Only the foods on the list may be brought into the school. No cupcakes, food prepared from home, or candy will be allowed. As always, you will sign a permission slip and be informed of any food that is served to your child. Please be sure to get the list from the child’s teacher if it is not sent home.

    Also, please look for the PTA calendar of events! It is on the back of the Parent August calendar. We have made some additions and changes, so please read over it carefully. We will have some new SES apparel and we have new PTA board members. Be sure to welcome Melanie Ridgeway as our Vice President and our own Amanda Stull as President. Sandra Gisiner and Billie Reid will serve again as our Treasurer and Secretary, we are so grateful for all of them.

  We are looking forward to another wonderful year here at Stewartsville Elementary, please do not hesitate to come in or call with any questions. Thank you for all of your support you provide for your child every day.
