    Happy November! With November comes colder weather and the anticipation of the holiday season.

    Our students are growing academically, socially, and emotionally as we settle into this school year. Faculty and staff continue to provide our children with a safe, supportive environment full of fun and engaging learning opportunities. In the even that your children need to be home due to COVID related reasons, your childrens' teachers have already sent home plans to have them stay up-to-date with the classroom activities in case you need it.

    As the weather turns colder, please make sure that your child has warm weather gear to be able to participate in outdoor activities. Our classes participate in outdoor recess as long as the feels like temperature is above 20 degrees. Coats, boots, hats, gloves, and snowpants (eventually) will enable students fully participate outdoors. 

    Our elementary student council has returned this year. Student council works to make our community and school a great place to be. They help plan activities and community service activities for our elementary students. 

    Practices are underway for the annual spelling bee. Students in fifth through eighth grade can compete in the Stockbridge Valley spelling bee which will be held on Friday, December 3rd at 1:00 in the auditorium. Our top finishers will have the opportunity to move on and compete at the regional level.

    Stockbridge Valley elementary now has an after school yoga club. Currently students in fourth and fifth grade can stay after school on Wednesdays to participate in minfulness and yoga activties. Our students are excited for this opportunity.
