Vision and Hearing Screening October 4

Students in K-3 and 5th grades will have a Vision and Hearing Screening on Tuesday, October 4.  If your child wears glasses, please be sure they bring their glasses to school with them on Tuesday, October 4.

Windsock Day - October 4

Tomorrow, Tuesday October 4, 2016, we will have a practice wind sock day! A windsock day is an Inside Day when the wind chill/temperature is below 20 degrees fahrenheit or heavy precipitation is present. Students will be directed to enter the school through the main entrances and proceed directly to the commons. Colorful windsocks will be displayed at different locations around the school to indicate that conditions exist for an windsock day.  Please do not park on Tuesday the 4th, just stay in the loop and drop your child off at the front of their building. Please be patient as we test this process in our new location prior to winter.

Anxiety in Children-Lyndsey Collins  

Anxiety disorders affect one in eight children. Research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse. Come see how the Stargate Elementary mental health team teaches students how to deal with stress and anxiety.

Date: Thursday October 27: 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
