Saturday was another successful Stonehouse Carnival, provided by our PTA. We raised $5,000 to be invested back into our school. Students and community members enjoyed games, food, and performances throughout the day. Some highlights included: Warhill High School Drum Line, teachers in a dunk tank, the principal being taped to a pole, a reptile room, puppy reading buddies, face painting, balloon animals, and much much more! Thank you to everyone involved.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the SES SCA pet supply drive to benefit Heritage Humane Society! A couple of SCA officers delivered the donations on Monday, and enjoyed meeting some of dogs and cats there. To find out more about the humane society, visit: https://heritagehumanesociety.org/
Second grade performed twice on Thursday, once in the morning for students, and again that evening for family and friends. Weeks of hard work and practice payed off when second graders performed songs about Egypt after studying all about ancient Egypt in Social Studies. Special thank you to Mrs. Wright for a leading our students and to all the parent volunteers who helped decorate the gym and stage.
On March 17th, Fourth Grade was treated to an exciting day with Civil War reenactor Brad Thomas. He set up a camp and even brought his horse, Mystery. Students also enjoyed Civil War music and singing along to many songs such as “Goober Peas”. After that, they enjoyed Civil War treats at a banquet and received their final rank announcements. Top generals for each class and the entire team were declared. A special thank you to the PTA for paying for our visit.
The annual celebration of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday and Read Across America Day is always a favorite of Stonehouse students, staff, families, and community members. The day begins with a storybook character parade, followed by guest readers from the community sharing some of their favorite stories. Thank you to everyone who volunteered or organized to help make this event a success!
