SCA Winter Gear Drive

Stonehouse Student Council Association would like to thank everyone who contributed to the winter gear drive! Today, a few SCA officers delivered the items collected to FISH. They will be shared with those in need in our community. We even got a tour of the facility and learned how Stonehouse’s contributions will help others. Together we made a difference!

Colonial Speaker Visits Fourth Grade

Fourth grade was treated to a fantastic show by Darci Tucker from Colonial Williamsburg, who help showcase life during the Revolutionary War. Darci portrayed three different women during her presentation.  The picture shows her representation of Deborah Sampson, who disguised herself as a man in order to fight.  She also talked with students after the presentation about how to create a character from history. Thank you to Darci and Colonial Williamsburg for making our social studies unit on the Revolutionary War come to life. A special thank you to our Stonehouse PTA for paying for our fourth graders to have this opportunity.
