Santa Lucia

  Our annual Santa Lucia Festival of Lights will be Saturday, December 10th, at the Stanton High School Gym, beginning at 7:00 PM. Grades 1st-6th will take part in the Festival. Ms. Schmidt would like the children to be at the gym between 6:45–6:50 PM, SEATED QUIETLY, on the stage bleachers on the north end of the stage. The 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students should go to the weight room no later than 6:50 PM. It is very important for every student to participate as it is part of the music curriculum and their music grade.

  The students should wear the following: Boys: White shirts, dark pants, red vest, or bow tie or ribbon tie (if you have one) or red suspenders. Girls: White blouse, red, blue or yellow skirt, striped apron (if you have one), red tights or knee socks and floral rings for your hair (if you have one). Extra clothing items will be available in the elementary office after November 28th for students to borrow and then return after the program.

Holiday Food Drive

  The Student Council would like to join the Elementary classes and have a Holiday Food Drive to help area families. We want to have a contest for all K-12th classes, to see who can “rack up” the most points from December 12th-December 21st. The following point system will allow us to see which class can earn the most points. The class with the most points will earn a movie and pizza party in January!
