The changes on March 19 and April 22 will require the cancellation of parent-student conferences scheduled for those days. Please contact your child's teacher if you would like to schedule a conference.

Students in Mrs. Manning's kindergarten class enjoying time outside hunting Easter eggs.
Students in 4th, 6th, and 8th grade at Stokes School have been learning about rocks and minerals. To apply their knowledge, students participated in a gem mining activity provided by Diamond Del's Gem Mining Adventure where they mined for real minerals using mining ore and water flumes. After mining for minerals they used an identification chart to identify the different minerals they discovered. Students were able to take with them the collection of minerals that they discovered. This was definitely a fun learning experience for the students!
Students begin a Chess Club at Stokes!

Recently during a unit about area and perimeter, Stokes 3rd grade students created kennel designs to present to the humane society.
The humane society brought in Hagrid,
who is training to be a therapy dog. She discussed the importance of adopting from a shelter, shelter fees, how kids and parents can help, shelter capacity, and clues to look for if the animals are in distress. After the presentation, Stokes students had the opportunity to present their kennel design to the presenter.
Stokes School 8th grade students worked with kindergarten students and taught them about all things 100 on the 100th day of school. Both sets of students enjoyed the activities and being able to synergize.
