February – March 2015
Before you give away those old children’s books, please consider donating them for our upcoming Stoddert Book Exchange, which will be held in conjunction with Family Fun Night on February 28. A collection box is available in the school lobby, if you’d like to drop them off or just bring them the night of the event.
After a long, cold winter, Family Fun Night is an annual Stoddert social event that everyone looks forward to! This year, FFN is set for Saturday, February 28 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at school, so be sure to mark your calendar. As in years past, families will be encouraged to bring board games and there will be plenty of amusements. And new this year, we’ll be adding a book exchange, so please save those books you were thinking about getting rid of. Of course, Coach Ricky will be providing the soundtrack (it wouldn’t be the same without him!). Plus pizza! It’s a can’t miss event.
More details are forthcoming and when a call for volunteers goes out, please consider signing up to help out. To help defray the cost of the event, families will be encouraged to donate a small amount during FFN ($10 per family would be great!).
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).
