Our 5th graders met their preschool buddies this morning and helped them with a project! 🍎
We are so excited to bring back the buddy program this year! 5th grade pairs up with preschool, 6th with kindergarten, 7th with 1st grade, and 8th with 2nd grade. Throughout the school year, the older students will do many different things with the younger ones, building relationships and leading by example, teaching their buddies the ways and traditions of the school.

Today, we solemnly remember the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Yesterday, to honor those we lost 20 years ago, as well as the brave men and women who serve in the U.S. military, Mrs. Atwell’s 3rd grade class had a moment of silence at 8:46am.
They then created a banner that will hang on a fence at Camp Lejeune, a Marine Corps base in North Carolina where Mrs. Atwell’s daughter lives.
Finally, they created welcome home cards for Sgt. Abdelsalam, who will be returning from Afghanistan soon.
Of her students, Mrs. Atwell noted, “It brought tears to my eyes how solemn and respectful they were.” As we have all just come back together for a new school year, what a wonderful way to emphasize heroic service, unity and compassion in her curriculum. ... See MoreSee Less
Here at St. Stan’s, kindergarten through 2nd grade have started using Wilson Fundations this year. This program makes learning to read fun while laying the groundwork for life-long literacy.
Yesterday, our 2nd grade students placed their vowels and consonants on magnetic boards and the entire class loved practicing letter-sound correspondence with their own materials.

First week back was a success! The students are settling in & getting comfortable, and our faculty had lots of time together preparing for the year. Today in the classrooms, we caught Ms. Diamond’s 5th grade science class trying to built the tallest spaghetti structure that could balance a marshmallow on top, kindergarten having snack time outside, and 2nd grade circled up for a story! Wishing everyone a great long weekend. We’ll see you back on Tuesday! ... See MoreSee Less
