March – May 2015
In honor of National Reading Month. This in-school performance will take place in the Stoddert gym. All parents are welcome, although, children should remain seated with their classes. Treasure Island is especially recommended for grades 2-5, but all are welcome to attend. The company says they “leave out the rum-soaked violence of the book in favor of the fun, action, and the moral foundation.” Ms. Bowlin will be reading the classic novel, prior to the performance, to 3rd & 5th grade students (and 4th grade students if time permits).

The Big Chili – May 2, 2015
Mark your calendar now! The Big Chili, Stoddert’s annual fund-raising event, is set for Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the New Zealand Embassy. This adults only evening will kick-off at 7:00 p.m. and is sure to be a memorable evening for all. For those unfamiliar, the name Big Chili is reminiscent of the event’s humble “chili cook-off” beginnings.
Today, the Big Chili is comprised primarily of an online and in-person auction.
The Big Chili planning committee, led by Stoddert parents May Piotrowski and Alysa McClellan, has been meeting and plans are well underway.
As planning ramps up, we’ll be looking for more volunteers so please consider if you can donate some time and effort to help make this year’s event a success. Most importantly, we ask that you plan to attend! If you’re interested in volunteering, have a lead on a possible donation or event sponsorship, or simply want to share a great idea for the Big Chili, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned! More to come.
