Sign-up to receive all Stoddert email blasts including The Chalkboard HERE
The Chalkboard is the PTO’s weekly e-mail newsletter full of information about the school and upcoming events and activities. Please use the form below to sign up for the Chalkboard.
The Chalkboard e-mails are different from communications (such as e-mails and text alerts) that the school and DCPS do regarding emergencies and school closures. Please make sure that your contact information is current and up-to-date with the front office to ensure that you are notified in the event of an emergency. Visit the DCPS website to sign up for emails and text alerts for school closures due to weather.
The Chalkboard is the name of the Sunday email blast. Anyone can sign up to receive the Chalkboard using the form above. The Chalkboard generally reflects items that have been posted onto stoddert.org as news items in the news section of the stoddert.org or as events in the event section of the stoddert.org. Sometimes the Chalkboard reflects other areas of the website. Items are posted onto the website as I receive them throughout the week so the website is usually a more up to date source of information. The Chalkboard is not the only email blast. From time to time we are asked to send out email blasts between/inter Sundays. These inter Sunday email blasts use the same system at the Chalkboard but they are not referred to as such because the name “Chalkboard” is intended to distinguish our regular Sunday communication email blast from others; everyone signed up to receive the Chalkboard also receives all the inter Sunday email blasts which generally reflect items just posted on stoddert.org.
What’s the difference between the Chalkboard and stoddert.org?
