“Believe! For with God all things are possible.”

Dear St. Stans’ Families:
There is such joy and comfort when we trust and place our faith and fate in God’s hands knowing he will never let us down. If we are patient and listen carefully, he will guide us towards what is right and what is good. This week we began our MAP testing and we have had no issues with testing. This is the first of three sessions to measure growth, determine eligibility for services, and help us determine strengths and areas of weakness in our curriculum that may need revising. We have told students that this is an important test that should be taken seriously so we get an accurate picture of their abilities. In addition to MAP testing we had our picture day (which went very well).
I would like you to mark your calendars with some upcoming events:
October 14- No School Columbus Day
October 18- Coach Bingo fundraiser
October 21- Take Back your Voice Assembly
October 24- No school- Teacher professional day
October 26- Trunk or Treat
Finally, I want to send out a word of congratulations to Mrs. Bellouny, our first grade teacher, and our October, Teacher of the Month! Mrs. Bellouny is not only superb in the classroom but she is always thinking of and implementing school wide programs; including our “kindness” wall and read a thon. We are lucky to have all of the teachers we have, who support all of our students.
In His Peace,
