We are excited about the upcoming school year! The school's leadership team has been making plans for the 2016-2017 school and wants to help our families begin with the end in mind. Please see below for a few updates for the upcoming school year.
1) Car riders will be dismissed in the afternoons at 2:40. Bus riders will be dismissed in the afternoons at 2:43.
2) The tardy bell will ring at 7:45, instead of 7:50, this year. Students who arrive to school after 7:45 will need to have their parents walk them into the building and sign them in at the front office. The instructional day begins directly at 7:45.
3) We will continue to host our before school care from 7:00-7:30. However, due to staff and budget cuts we will be charging $1.00 a day for before school care. Any student that arrives to school prior to 7:30 will need to pay a dollar for care. All students may arrive to school at 7:30 without being charged.
4) In grades 3-8 we will be piloting a grab and go breakfast program. Students will receive their breakfast from the cafeteria and then report to their classroom to eat. This program will help with morning supervision and allow teachers to build stronger relationships with their students.

Mrs. Current's 5th grade Science students simulated the circulatory system. Students drew a diagram of the heart and lungs on the floor while other students acted as blood cells going to the heart and lungs. Students were able to explain the flow of blood and the purpose of the circulatory system with this movement activity.
Student leadership role acceptance letters were given out on September 23rd! Way to go Leaders on your acceptance. We look forward to seeing the great things you will do at Stokes.
