5th Grade Class
The students of Mr. Mainquist’s class had the neat chance to video chat with a country artist, Ciara Rae is a singer/songwriter out of Nashville, TN. The forty-five minute session included many wonderful sparks of learning! It was great to have Miss Rae share her writing process and then it was even better when the students shared about their personal narrative pieces. The students asked many memorable questions. She also discussed the importance of empowering others by acceptance of their differences. It was interesting to hear her life story and the bright future she wants to bring to others through her music. The class also heard her sing a little of Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road”. We are extremely thankful for the awesome afternoon spent video chatting with Ciara Rae!
Parents’ night for basketball will be Monday, February 5th, with pictures starting at 5:00 PM.
Essex girls defeated Stanton 42-23 Tuesday night. The Viqueens came out with a scrappy defensive effort that provided turnovers and points in the first quarter. The Queens led after the first frame 9-8. Then the Queens hit a scoring slum going several minutes without scoring and only netting 3 points in the quarter. In the second half the continued lack of scoring doomed the Queens, shooting 8 for 36 for 22% on the night. Queens record drops to 7-7
The Vikings are the Corner Conference Tournament Champions for the 8th time overall and we played in the championship game for the 14th time. We are in 2nd place behind Fremont-Mills for appearances (24) and championships at 10. Our championship teams came in 1970, 1976, 1990, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2016, and 2018. Runner up in 1975, 1981, 1985, 1991, 2007, and 2017. We appreciated the great support we got from the student section and the community for the night.
Next up is finishing out the regular season and non-conference season. Our district is out and we will be seeding that district before February.
Junior High Girls Basketball
The Stanton Junior High girls finished their season at Essex on January 23rd. The Viqueens came out with a win, 54– 16. It was a quick tempo game with high-pressure defense. It has been a fun season with many learning opportunities. The Queens finished the season with a record of 9–3. Thank you for the support!
Junior High Girls Basketball
The Jr. High boys basketball team closed out their season with a 49-27 victory over Essex.

Coach Subbert and the team would like to thank all those who supported the Jr. Vikes throughout the season.

The Stanton Community Schools will administer the Iowa Assessments beginning Tuesday, January 30th, to all students in grades 3-11.
The purpose of the Iowa Assessments is to provide the school with
information and to help teachers make sound educational decisions about student's learning. The scores will allow teachers to check
each student's year-to-year growth and to identify each child's strongest and weakest areas of achievement. When test results are used in conjunction with teacher observation and other information from the classroom, teachers and parents can work together to identify and address the educational needs of each student.
Just as in the everyday school activities, you can help your child do their best by seeing that he/she is fully rested. This year, like last year, all students in grades Kindergarten through twelfth will be
offered breakfast on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the testing week. This breakfast will be at no cost to the students and ALL STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO GO DOWN FOR THE BREAKFAST BUT DO NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE SERVING LINE IF THEY DO NOT WANT TO EAT BREAKFAST AT SCHOOL. The breakfast is being offered to those who would like to eat breakfast at school. The Stanton PTSO, along with the school, has generously offered to donate funds to help cover the cost of breakfast for the students. The menu for the 3 days is as follows:
Tuesday, January 30th-Breakfast Wrap, Muffin, Fruit, Juice, Milk
Wednesday, January 31st-Sausage Gravy w/Biscuit, Muffin, Fruit, Juice, Milk
Thursday, February 1st- Breakfast Pizza, Muffin, Fruit, Juice, Milk
