NEWS & EVENTS
Hello Stanton Families-
There has been so much happening here at Stanton and there is so much more to come! Thank you parents for your efforts in keeping our drop off and pick up routine safe. But we can do better! Please be sure to take care in how you are driving and parking when you pick your child up after school or drop them off before school. Remember we are the example for our children and students, they are always watching what we do and learn from us.
I am so glad that I have the opportunity to work with so many great students and families. I really appreciate the way you have supported me in my new role and are willing to come to me with your ideas, questions, and concerns. I wanted to remind everyone that we have some amazing teachers and they are very familiar with the learning needs of each of their students. Please keep in mind that when you have a specific concern about your child that meeting with the teacher is the first step in
supporting your child, they know your child’s current learning situation best and have the strategies and skills to meet your child’s needs. Whenever you have a concern reach out to your child’s teacher and ask for their help. Open communication with the teacher is vital when it comes to success of your child. Thank you for considering this as the school year continues.
As we enter into the beautiful month of November, my goal is to have an attitude of gratitude and take a moment each day to look around at the things that I take for granted and be thankful for them. I encourage you to take some time this month to do the same. I am so happy to be a part of the Stanton family. Stanton is a wonderful and special place.
I would like to give a BIG thank you to the many parents who volunteered a great deal of time and effort to plan, organize, and facilitate Stanton's annual Walk-a-Thon on Thursday, Oct. 29. Your time and energy paid off and helped to make the WAT a huge success! Thank you teachers for volunteering your time as well. You also played an important role in this event. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you to Mrs. Stanek- Rykoff for her leadership and planning for our Walk To School week. We had 104 students who walked to school on International Walk to School Day! Way to go Stanton Stars! Thank you to the many volunteers who came that day to support our students by greeting them and handing out fun prizes.
Our school will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week November 2 – 6. Thank you to Mr. Jared Albanese for coordinating this effort and to SPA for supporting the program as well. The focus of Red Ribbon Week is making healthy choices and staying drug free. Take some time this week and talk with your child about how he or she can stay healthy and make wise choices that keep them safe.
Our School Site Members have been elected. The newest members of our SSC are Theresa Koscinski, Prudy Foran and John Mandish. They will be joining our current parent representatives: Eugene Alfaro and Jennifer Brame. 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.
Please come join us at our next SPA meeting on Tuesday, November 17th at 6:30 pm. Our Superintendent will be joining us.
