Positive Behavior System

This year the elementary school is implementing a Positive Behavior System (PBS). The teachers are excited to to hand out Eagle Passes to students that are demonstrating positive behavior traits both in and out of the classroom.

Once the students receive a Soaring to New Heights Eagle Pass, they will place it in a box at the front office in order to enter a drawing for a reward. Drawings will take place every two weeks and the those that were drawn will be able to select from a variety prizes.

New Stargate Parent Information Night on September 19

We plan to have a New Stargate Parent Information Night on September 19 at 6:30 pm in the K-5 Commons. Stargate has had tremendous growth the last few years and in an effort to improve our communication we would like for you to take a short survey. We know the importance of having a system in place to educate our parents on "all things Stargate" and in order to create a system that will work for all stakeholders we would appreciate your feedback.

Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey so we can include all of your questions and concerns. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5QQ8VHS

WATCH D.O.G.S. Program

We are excited to launch our WATCH D.O.G.S. Program for 2017-2018 school year!

There will be a brief overview of the program and overall expectations, a tour of the buildings on campus, and pizza will be served. We hope to see you all there. The online sign-up system will be ready after the meeting for those that would like to volunteer. Please review the link below for more information about the WATCH D.O.G.S. Program.
