Welcome to Stanton Elementary!
The 2019-2020 school year is off to a great start! It is hard to believe that Homecoming is just around the corner and fall weather is starting to make an appearance!
Homecoming festivities include a pep rally on Thursday night, September 26th. It will be held in the high school gym at 7:00 pm. Elementary students will be dismissed at 11:20 on Friday, September 27th. The Homecoming parade will begin on main street at 1:30 pm. The football game will be at 7:00.
Calendar reminders: This year we will observe early dismissals most Mondays. Elementary students will be dismissed at 1:05 on those dates. There is an early dismissal thei first day of school at 1:05 pm. Parent Teacher Conferences are Thursday, October 24th. **Please note that there is NO EARLY DISMISSAL on Monday, October 21! There will be NO SCHOOL for students on Thursday, October 24th or Friday, October 25th!
We have trash bags available in all sizes. They are $10.00/roll. If interested in purchasing trash bags, please contact an elementary student or call the elementary office.
Please remember to continue to look for items with the Box Top logo. The Box Tops for Education program has benefited our students greatly in previous years! The program has changed and now requires receipt of purchase to be scanned via cell phone. Information was sent home at registration regarding these changes. Please call the elementary office if you did not get a copy of the information and we will gladly send it home with your student.
As a reminder for all parents, please make sure you call the elementary office at 829-2171 if your child will be absent from school. It is very important that the school is contacted! Also, if you are planning to pick up your child early or if your child has an appointment and will arrive to school late, a phone call to the office is appreciated. Thank you for your attention to our school policy.
If you would like to eat hot lunch with your student, please make sure you notify the elementary school office by 9 am the day that you are planning to eat with your student! The cost of a visitor lunch is $4.40. A lunch ticket will need to be purchased in the elementary office prior to going down for lunch. We ask that you bring the exact change for your lunch ticket.
Parents picking up students after school are asked to use the "Pick Up Zone" between the high school and the Viking Center and to wait for their students in that area. If for some reason a parent must enter the school at the end of the day, please do not enter building prior to 3:00 (when orange cone in front of door is removed). All parents must stay in the concourse area - we ask that no visitors go directly to classrooms or stand at classroom doors as our staff members are still using this valuable time to educate the students and we want to minimize all distractions! Thank you for following this request!
Visitors are always welcome at Stanton Elementary! Please make sure that if you are planning to eat lunch or visit a classroom, that you call the school in advance. Visitors are asked to ALWAYS check in in the elementary office prior to going in to any classrooms or the lunch room area.
