“If you want others to be happy practice compassion. If you want to be happy practice compassion.”
May 16, 2019
Dear St. Stans’ Families:
How often do we forget to take care of ourselves in the hustle and bustle of everyday life? The pursuit of happiness is guaranteed in our country’s Declaration of Independence, and we are the only country that wants it’s citizens to in fact achieve this pursuit. Take a moment and be compassionate to yourself, as we enter these final weeks of the school year, because we are responsible for our happiness.
Tomorrow we will have our annual field day and we are looking forward to a day of fun and hopefully happiness. Here are a couple of items to be aware of:
- Students should come to school in their gym uniforms. They will be given their field day t-shirts when they arrive to school on Friday.
- Please be sure to apply sun block and bug spray for the day.
- Students will be provided a pizza lunch and a ice cream snack, courtesy of the HSA. If your child does not eat pizza please be sure to send them with a lunch.
- Students can wear hats and sunglasses but they are entirely responsible for them.
- The grass is a bit muddy due to all the rain we have had. We will do our best to set up events in non muddy areas but don’t be surprised if your child returns home a bit dirty.
- We want this day to be safe and fun for everyone, if a student is not behaving in a manner that is conducive to this they may be asked to sit out of the events.
Next week we have two early dismissal days on Monday and Friday and please be reminded that 5/27 school is closed in honor of Memorial Day. Finally, an additional reminder that 8th grade final exams will be given the week of May 27th and grades five through seven will have finals the week of June 3rd. Remember school ends on June 12th this year.
In His Peace,
Elena Malinconico, Principal
