STANTON COMMUNITY SCHOOL BULLETIN DECEMBER 21, 2017
ENJOY YOUR CHRISTMAS BREAK!! SCHOOL RESUMES ON JANUARY 3RD.
The FCCLA is sponsoring a basketball Pink Out on Tuesday, January 23rd, when we play Essex. We hope to do another order of t-shirts (the same t-shirt that was sold for the volleyball Pink Out). The order form will be in the high school office after the first of the year. Other activities are being planned-watch the bulletin for more details. All of the money raised goes to the Montgomery County Relay for Life.
7th and 8th Grade Science Fair
The 7th and 8th grade students will be presenting Science Fair projects beginning January 22nd. Corner Conference Science teachers have decided to only include experiments at the Corner Conference Science Fair. Please make sure your son/ daughter is working on finding an experiment for the Science Fair. The top 20 presentations will attend the Corner Conference Science Fair in February. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Subbert or Mrs. Erickson at the school.
5th Grade Class
The class has been working hard to collect and organize items for the local food pantry. The elementary and high school students have brought in a nice amount of items this month. This service project offers a great chance to also talk about needs and how they differ from wants. The students really reflect well and understand the importance of helping other people. Thank you for contributing to the food pantry!
Eating Lunch with Your child
We encourage parents, grandparents, etc. to eat lunch with their child. The school DOES REQUIRE that you call 24 hours ahead if you plan on eating lunch with your child so our kitchen staff can plan accordingly. Also you MUST pay for your lunch and receive a lunch ticket in one of the offices before going to the lunchroom. Cost of lunch is $4.30.
