Stargate Student Council


I cannot be more proud of the Elementary Student Council students for creating the Kindness Kup! They are looking for ways in which to recognize positive students behaviors and interactions.


What is it? The Kindness Kup is a way for students who are Kind to be acknowledged for their Kind deeds.

Who does it involve? All elementary students.

What are the rules? Teachers, administrators, staff members, and student council members have Kindness Koupons that they will give to students Kaught being Kind. If you get a Kindness Koupon, you will take it back to your classroom and put it in your Kindness Kup Kontainer.


  • Help someone pick up their dropped school supplies

  • Hold the door for someone


  • Respect in your classroom

  • Kindness and respect on the playground

Why? To demonstrate Kindness.

How and what do you win?

  • CLASSES - At the end of the Kindness Kontest, the student Kouncil will count up the Kindness Koupons in each classroom and the winning classroom wins a party of the class’s choice. It can be a pizza party, ice cream party, chicken nugget party, or something similar and the student council members will be happy to run the party and make it a fun celebration of your hard work.

  • INDIVIDUALS - At the end of the Kindness Kontest, after the winner has been decided, we’ll take the rest of the Koupons and draw names for prizes. They will be drawn during morning announcements.

When: Starts: April 23rd

Ends: May 10th

  • Party will be the week of May 14th - 17th. The date and time will be decided by the winning class’s teacher. The class will decide the type of party they would like.

  • Two students’ names will be pulled out of the drawing daily during announcements on each day from May 14th - 17th.  

Lost and Found:

Please check the lost and found located in the commons area. Also check at the Elementary front desk for personal items such as: glasses, Jewelry etc..

5th Grade Choir Students Will Perform at the Greek Amphitheater in Civic Center Park

Rodney Osburn, the K-5 General Music teacher at Stargate, is happy to announce that his 5th grade choir students will be performing  at the Greek Amphitheater in Civic Center Park on May 18, 2018 from 11:00AM-12:00PM. The students will perform several Beatles songs including many from the Beatles “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band” album in celebration of the 50th-year anniversary release date, June 2017.


The free event, called Beatles in the Park, serves a greater purpose to bring awareness to the homeless community. Students will be making large signs with messages like: HELP THE HOMELESS and PEOPLE NEED HOMES. Fundraising through donations at the event is still TBD. The 12 songs the students will perform include: Twist and Shout, Eleanor Rigby, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, With A Little Help From My Friends, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, When I'm 64, Penny Lane, Blackbird, Here Comes the Sun, Golden Slumbers, Carry that Weight and The End. The 100 plus students will be dressed to look just like the Sgt. Pepper album cover with an additional 2 rows of contemporary famous people. Several 5th grade students will accompany the choir with guitars, keyboards, bass and drums. There will also be several professional musicians from local symphonies and Rock bands (including teachers and parents) who will join with the students on certain “iconic” cameo instrumental parts. This should be a truly “multi-generational” event. A splendid time is guaranteed for all! Thanks for your attention to this.

We hope many will be able to attend this event.
