Try your best in everything you do, stay positive, have fun, and keep smiling!
You’ll do great, I promise!
Mr. Sondag, Principal
To the Entire Center-Stanton Community,
We have certainly had a fantastic month here…it’s been incredibly busy, but the progress the students have made in just a few short weeks has been astounding! By now, everyone is settling in well to their new classrooms, their new routines and getting down to the business of learning. We anticipate a wonderful learning experience for all our students and embrace the initiatives that our District has chosen to work on.
October is always a fun month at school…we’ll be diving into all things Fall as we gear up to the busy holiday season. October is a time of change and anticipation. We welcome the change in seasons and the start-up of the school year.
October is also Red Ribbon month. The end of October (October 25-29) became formalized as Red Ribbon Week in 1988 by a proclamation of the United States Congress. It was inspired by the tragic death in 1985 of an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration Agent at the hands of Mexican drug traffickers. Red Ribbon Week activities are organized each October by tens of thousands of schools, government agencies, and social service organizations. The main purpose of Red Ribbon Week is to celebrate and promote positive choices and healthy, drug free lifestyles for young people and adults in the United States.
Students will be celebrating Halloween this month. Each classroom will be hosting a class celebration, which may include games, special read-a-louds, and crafts. Further information regarding the specific class festivities will be sent out by the classroom teachers.
