First and foremost, I am thrilled to announce that I have been officially selected as the principal of Stoneridge Elementary! Words do not describe how excited I am to continue working with the amazing staff and incredibly supportive families at Stoneridge.  ~Jessica Brooks

Last week we had a great time celebrating Storybook Character Day! Leave it up to the incredible Stoneridge staff to go ALL out!! 


Not only did the staff look great, but the kids looked great as well! 

This week, on Wednesday, March 13th, we are lucky enough to have our very own parent and author, Jesse Bennett, come spend time talking to our students. She is kind enough to share the profits from her book sales with our school and excited to have lunch with any student that buys her book. 
There are fliers in the front office, if you are interested. 


Also, THIS FRIDAY, the event we have been waiting for: Betting on the Arts
Our teachers are so thankful that the PTC puts in so much work on this incredible event. 
There is a special raffle for those who buy their tickets by this Tuesday at 5pm. Buy your tickets!!
