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,

The Holiday Season...a time for family, reflection, appreciation and celebration. The Stanton staff would like to wish everyone a special and memorable holiday and a Happy New Year!

Compassion is our character trait for the month of December. Thank you to our wonderful Stanton community for donating food to our annual food drive. This was a great opportunity for students to “fill the buckets” of others and learn about the importance of giving to impact the lives of those who are in need. There is another opportunity to make a positive impact on families who are in need. Please consider helping a local family in need by stopping by the office window. Pick out a snowman that has a gift request, purchase an item, wrap it up and bring it back to school with the snowman attached. Thank you!

Safety Reminders
Please remember to follow all traffic laws and drive carefully when driving around Stanton. Please do not drop your child off in the middle of the street, make illegal U-turns on Somerset and always use our crosswalks. Do not park in the loading and unloading zone as this causes problems during morning drop off and afternoon pick up times. Most importantly, please be courteous, patient and safe so all of our students can get to and from school in a safe manner. Thank you.

Report Cards
Report cards are being sent home on Friday, December 12th. Please review them carefully as they have been aligned to the Common Core standards Please check in with your child’ s teacher if you have any questions or concerns. In addition, pleased spend time discussing your child’s progress with him or her, praising their achievements and helping them set goals for the next trimester.

Mindfulness is about love and loving life.  When you cultivate this love, it gives you clarity and compassion for life, and your actions happen in accordance with that.  John Kabat-Zinn

Compassion may be defined as the capacity to be attentive to the experience of others, to wish the best for others, and to sense what will truly serve others.  Joan Halifax
