STANTON COMMUNITY SCHOOL BULLETIN NOVEMBER 17, 2017

SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

FCCLA/Red Cross Blood Drive

  On Friday, December 1st, the FCCLA will be sponsoring a Red Cross Blood Drive. It will be from 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at the Viking Center. Call the high school office at 829-2162 or go online at redcrossblood.org to make an appointment. We are in need of O negative and power red donors. Your donations will not only help save lives but will also help with scholarships for Stanton seniors.  

Fourth Grade Thanksgiving Poetry Reading

  The Fourth Grade will be having a Thanksgiving Poetry reading on Wednesday, November 22nd at 9:15 a.m. Please join us in the elementary concourse if you would like to hear the students practice reading their poems.

Santa Lucia

  Our annual Santa Lucia Festival of Lights will be Saturday, December 9, at the Stanton High School Gym, beginning at 7:00 p.m. 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 p.m. 4th-6th grade students should go to the weight room no later than 6:50 p.m. 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/ribbon tie or red suspenders.

Girls-White blouse, red, blue, or yellow skirt, striped apron red tights or knee socks with floral rings in your hair (if available.)

  Clothing items for the student's outfits will be available in the elementary office after the Thanksgiving holiday.

 

ATHLETICS

Volleyball Post-Season Honors

  Two Stanton Viqueens received All-Conference volleyball honors for the 2017 season. Junior Savanna Moffett was named to the Second Team and Freshman Tara Peterson was named to the Honorable Mention Team. Congratulations girls on these well-deserved honors!

 

NURSE

  As the colder weather arrives, it makes it very important to have your child/children dressed in appropriate gear. They will continue to go outdoors as long as the weather permits. Students in grades K-2nd will go outside as long as the temperature/wind chill is 15 degrees or higher. Students in 3rd-5th will go out if the temperature/wind chill is above 10 degrees. Please make sure you send your child/children to school with a hat, heavy coat, and gloves. If they are without these items, they will need to get them from our lost and found box. We want to make sure they go outdoors and get fresh air and exercise.  Exercising while having fun is the best kind of exercise! Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.
