Cash for Classrooms
We’re excited to share that our school is participating in Cash for Classrooms, part of Casey’s Rewards. This opens up Stanton Community School to new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students.
The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you buy from Casey’s and use their rewards program you can simply turn your points into a donation to our school.
Help Stanton Community School make the most of this program and learn more at Caseys.com/schools.
We would like to recognize one of our bus drivers this week. Mr. Tom Johnson has driven a bus for Stanton for 36 years and even drove the principal's bus when he was in elementary school. Tom is married to Donna and they have 2 sons Shane and Shawn and a daughter, Shari. Tom has lived in the Stanton area all his life. We appreciate Tom and all his efforts to transport our students to and from school safely.
