Dear Parents,

Please note some important upcoming dates!

Tuesday, May 28th - June birthdays celebrated in assembly at 8am

Wednesday, May 29th - July birthdays in assembly

Thursday, May 30th - August birthdays in assembly

Tuesday, June 4th - Primary House piano players have their recital at 8:15am

Friday, June 7th - Field Day

As a reminder, on Fridays, the 2nd and 3rd graders will continue to come in their P.E. clothes, but they will need to bring appropriate Spirit Day dress to change into afterwards.  Below is a copy of the guidelines that were emailed home:

  • All students will be able to wear any collared shirt (polo or button-down) or t-shirt as long as there are no large or distracting symbols on it.

 

  • All students will be able to wear solid-colored khaki pants/shorts, dress pants, unripped jeans, and solid color leggings. Students may not wear athletic shorts or sweatpants.

 

  • All students will be allowed to wear sneakers.

 

  • All students will be allowed to wear non-hooded sweatshirts, jackets, and sweaters. Items must be solid-colored, must not have large or distracting symbols on them and must be deemed appropriate by teachers.  

 

  • We encourage students to wear Stanwich attire and/or their blue and whites and show their school spirit.

 

  • Students may choose to wear regular uniform.

Reminders...

* Even though it is technically spring, the mornings are still chilly, so please send your child in with appropriate outerwear!

* Trimester 3 Book Bingo has begun!  Links to the calendar and project descriptions can be found below under "Important Links." 

Book exchange books are due back on Monday mornings.  Please help your child get in the habit of bringing books back after the weekend.

 

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. DiMinno & Ms. Barbieri

 

* Please help your child remember to bring his/her water bottle to school each day!

* Please label all parts of your child's uniform with his/her name - it makes identifying misplaced items much easier!

* P.E. days are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  

*  Book exchange books are due back each Monday.  

* Please look for your child's trick words in his/her folder each Monday. 

* School starts promptly at 8am: Monday-Thursday the children have assembly at 8am, and on Friday the 2nd grade has P.E. and the 3rd grade has Spanish.  Please try to get your child to school by 7:50 at the latest so that they have a few minutes to get settled before we leave the classroom.  Attendance is taken by the teachers when we leave the classroom at 8am, so if your child arrives at school after 8am, please sign them in in the Main Office before they come down to assembly or to the classroom.

  
- P.E. Changing:  

     Tuesday/Thursday - the children come to school in regular Stanwich uniforms and change into P.E. clothes right before class (and change back into regular uniforms later on).

     Friday - the children come to school in P.E. clothes (as P.E. is first or second period), and then change back into regular uniforms.  ** This is a change from last year! **


- Homework:  2nd grade homework should take about 20 minutes, and 3rd grade homework should take about 30 minutes each night (Monday-Thursday.  No Friday or weekend homework).  Reading homework should be a combination of independent reading and reading aloud to an adult.  Please help your child get in the habit of filling out his/her reading log each night and returning to to school in the homework folder each day.  Thank you!

The Stanwich Seven:  Courage, Wisdom, Honesty, Compassion, Forgiveness, Commitment and Joy!

Our Current Focus:  Honesty:  Honest hearts produce honest actions.
