Welcome to Stanton Elementary

Our mission at Stanton Elementary School is to encourage children to learn and grow in a safe, nurturing environment that promotes literacy, fosters self-esteem, and challenges students to succeed.


Dear Stanton Families,

Happy New Year! I hope you and your family had a memorable holiday. Thank you for the holiday wishes, cards and gifts. It was very nice of you to remember me.

Positive Attitude  
Positive Attitude is our character trait for the month of January. Please discuss the importance of having a positive attitude with your child. Sometimes a positive attitude can make all the difference in how we approach and tackle a problem or difficult situation. Talk with your child about how they can turn something negative into a positive and to be careful about the negative statements they sometimes will make about their abilities. We want our students to have “yes, we can” attitude! I also saw a neat idea from House of Shine that talked about creating an Attitude Box and thinking about what makes you “shine.” How perfect since that is our theme for the year at Stanton.

Goal Setting
Goal setting is important for all of us. In her article, Effective Goal Setting for Students, Dorit Sasson wrote “By setting goals, students can improve their academic performance, increase their motivation to achieve, increase pride and satisfaction in performance and improve their self-confidence.” As we begin the 2015 year, this is the perfect time to talk with your child(ren) about goals and help them set their own goals. Help them to learn how to set priorities, express their goals in a positive way, keep their goals small and achievable, set goals that they have control over and set goals that are measureable.

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results. - Wade Boggs
