January 23, 2022

 

Happy Sunday! You know I was hoping to have a big Packer celebration post today but, that did not work out. That was not a pretty game, but it definitely kept everyone's interest from beginning to end. A good game is always fun to watch. So instead of football, I will celebrate the 100th day of school! We have made it through 100 days of this crazy year! And there are 81 days to go! 

On Friday, every student who dressed up for the 100 day earned a point with the students who dressed in spirit wear today. The creativity was incredible!! Here's winners from last week and Friday’s Spirt Wear Day! Canepa's classes are on FIRE!!!

Friday - 1/21:

K: Schmitz, 1st: Decuir, 2nd: Santos, 3rd: Beck, 4th: Canepa, 5th: Canepa

1/14:

K: Schmitz, 1st: Decuir & Wilkinson, 2nd: Boyd, 3rd: Beck, 4th: Canepa, 5th: Canepa

Registration starts for 3rd - 5th grade girls this Monday, Jan. 24th but Stoneridge can't participate and will have to cancel the team without 2 confirmed coaches.

Huge thank you to Amanda Matz for stepping up to be one of the coaches needed but she needs your help.

Hello Families! We are excited to have the students back in class. It was a great week and it flew by! This week, we formally introduced and taught out new school-wide expectations. I have included a video of me explaining our PACK rules and a video demonstrating what we expect and do not expect at school. We showed the latter video at school and the kids LOVED it! Please watch so you can understand what the kids are expected to do at school and support it at home. Thank you!

Happy New Year Families! I am still in awe that we are entering 2022. That used to seem like an imaginary year, but here we are. I have no doubt this will be a great year, but we already know it comes with challenges. Yet again, we will have to rely on our flexibility and tenacity to move onward and upward. The good news is that we know we are strong and capable. Bring it on, 2022!! 

REMINDERS: 

No School Tomorrow, Monday. We can't wait to see the students on Tuesday and hear their stories about break!

The pavers up the hill from Alexandra are no longer available. You will have to come to the front entrance of school. Thank you for understanding.

Help Needed: Our PTC is looking for help to cover the cross walks and traffic before and after school this first week back. This is such a gift to our teachers so they can be at the door to welcome the students back. Please sign up here to help!

Crosswalk Help (JAN. first week back)

That is all I have for today! We are excited to see the kids!

Change in COVID Testing. We Now Need Proof of Medically Supervised Tests:

There have been questions about whether parents need to actually show proof of the medically supervised test for symptomatic/home close contact and the answer is yes if they want to return earlier than the end of the official quarantine date.  If parents do NOT show proof of the medically supervised test then they must fulfill their entire quarantine period.

Request: We are in need of a licensed contractor to put in some steps for us. Please let me know if you are one or if you know one who may be interested! Thank you.

Have a great week!

We have exciting news to share with all our Timberwolf Families!!!

We attended the Light the Night Walk on November 6, to show support for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  So...much...fun!  Thank you to all the families who walked with us! 
Speaking of support, Timberwolves, we have raised $2,780.00 for LLS!  That is 185% or our original goal of $1,500.00.  Keep up the good work all year long!

Saturday, November 13 took us to the Sacramento Blue Star Moms Care Packaging Event for our military serving all over the world.  We took all those wonderful notes and cards you made to show our appreciation for our brave soldiers!  Thank you students for the cards, and the families who participated in packing boxes! 

We hope you had a warm and happy Thanksgiving!
Mrs. Wallace and Stoneridge Student Leadership Club

We can't wait to see you tomorrow!!
