NEWS & EVENTS
Dear Stanton Families,
Thank you to Mrs. Stanek- Rykoff for her leadership and planning for our Walk To School week. Thank you to Supervisor Nate Miley and our school board members, Janice Friesen and Jo Loss for coming to Stanton to participate in our International Walk to School day activities.
Our school spent October 20 – 24, celebrating Red Ribbon Week. Thank you to Mr. Jared Albanese for coordinating this effort. Thank you to SPA for providing the pencils, ribbons for all our students and the pencil sharpeners for our classroom winners (Rooms 19, 18 and 10) for having the highest percentage of students wearing red on Friday, October 24th.
Thank you to our Superintendent, Jim Negri and to our Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, Mary Boyle for visiting Stanton during the month of October. It is always nice to have visitors come and see the wonderful work our students and staff do on a daily basis.
Our School Site Members have been elected. The newest members of our SSC are Eugene Alfaro and Jennifer Brame. They will be joining our current parent representatives: Amy Green; Matt Kass and Yolanda Sanders. The other members of our SSC include: Shannon Barradas- Smith, Jane Brady, Jenny Lau and Shirley Rodriguez. Thank you to our SSC members for their time and willingness to serve in these leadership roles.
Let’s Show We Care
Caring is our character trait for the month of November. Please talk with your child(ren) about ways they can show they care about their school, friends, family and community. It is also a perfect time to remember those less fortunate. Our school is beginning our Annual Holiday Food Drive for Castro Valley Outreach. CV Outreach helps local families in need. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate care for others in our community. Please consider donating. A list of items that are needed are included in this newsletter. Thank you.
Every year, all the schools in Castro Valley have an opportunity to present to our School Board. Stanton will be presenting on Thursday, November 13th at 7 pm. Please come show your support of our school and congratulate our fourth grade Stanton Star, Aleesia V., who is being recognized and Mrs. Lisa Haidinyak, who will be recognized as Stanton volunteer.
Please come join us at our next SPA meeting on Tuesday, November 18th at 6:30 pm. Our Superintendent and a member from our School Board will be joining us.
