DECEMBER NEWSLETTER
-STRATFORD SCHOOL-


Hello Stratford Families,

I cannot believe it is already December!  We had a busy November at Stratford School. Thank you to all the parents and families who came out to Parent Teacher Conference evenings and days, building a strong home-school connection is so important to academic and social success, it benefits the students, teachers and families to take time to communicate with each other.

Our first Family Fun event was bigger and better than ever! Everyone did love BINGO!!! We filled the room with families and the children were very excited to win prizes. Thank you to the Family Fun Committee, families who helped with setup and cleanup and the teachers, staff and their families for pitching in.

Our Box Tops committee rolled out a new program. The classes will be competing to collect the most Box Tops! And the class who collected the most Box Tops at the end of the year will have an Ice Cream Party in June! Get clipping!

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered in our library. The sign up genius has been adjusted to show classroom schedules so parents/grandparents can volunteer while their child is in the library. Your help is greatly appreciated as it allows Mrs. Donovan to have more time to help all the students to select appropriate books, and learn to use all the resources in the library (and you will learn a lot listening to Mrs. Donovan’s amazing lessons, I learned a whole rap song about non-fiction!).

A big thank you to our Health and Safety Committee, the Red Cross and the 5th Graders for hosting a very successful blood drive on November 15th. We had 86 presenting donors and 82 pints were collected (68 whole blood donations and 7 double red donations) that is 246 potential lives saved! Thank you 5th graders for being so well behaved and helpful to the donors and to the teachers and staff for organizing them. This year we collected 20 more pints than last year! Thank you to all the donors who came out and supported the students and the community.
