Stonehouse students and staff celebrated Unity Day as a part of our schoolwide anti-bullying program. We wore orange to represent our common commitment to being respectful. All were invited to sign a pledge of respect and agree to use stop, walk, and talk strategies in the event that disrespect occurs.
Check out our special education team celebrating Disability Awareness Month. The shirts say to “Find the Ability in Disability”!
Victoria Jamieson came to visit SES on October 19th. She has written the New York Times best seller graphic novel, Roller Girl, The Great Pet Escape series, and Olympig. She inspired us by describing how she writes about events from her childhood. We were also amazed by the ease in which she created numerous excellent drawings for SES.
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign mobilizes millions of people to celebrate literacy by participating in the largest shared reading experience. On October 19th students at Stonehouse joined together with schools from across the country to put children first by shining a spotlight on the importance of high-quality early education. The adorable book, Quackers by Liz Wong was the read aloud that every child at Stonehouse enjoyed with their buddy class.
Wednesday 10/18, marked our third annual PTA Walk-a-ton. Family, friends and community members pledged their donations for students to walk, jog, or run, as many laps as possible around the bus loop during their centers time. We had great support from our local fire department, FISH Inc., and Dream Catchers. Thank you to all our volunteers who made this event happen.
