Stingel Art Show
Stingel Primary School in Ontario will host its annual Art Show Open House Tuesday, April 18th from 4:00-6:30 pm. The show will be held in the Stingel school building hallways for the next few weeks and will be a colorful display of work that the students have done throughout the 2016-2017 school year.
Mrs. Mary Roby’s all-day Kindergarten- 5th grade art classes have been studying a variety of different artwork throughout the school year. The third, fourth, and fifth grades have studied topics such as color theory, still-life painting, printmaking, altered digital photography, and animal drawing, as well as an in depth study of paper mache mask making which are currently under way. In the 3-5 grade hallways you will find digital self-portraits in a Pop Art style, Native American Thunderbird shields, animal drawings as well as beautiful floral and insect paintings. The primary grades K-2 have concentrated on nature themes as well as studying the elements of design such as line, shape, and color. In the K-2 grade hallways you will find a lively display of self-portraits, heart weavings, color studies, owls, leaf texture designs, beautiful house and cat drawings and more. Mrs. Lana Garberich’s 4th grade art students have been busy working on animal drawings and Native American tunics made of clay.
Jump Rope for Hearts
Students "pie-ed" the staff for our Jump Rope for Hearts fundraiser.
1st Grade
Mrs. Sunnucks’ Class has been working on analyzing, comparing and interpreting data. In Go Math the students have learned how to read and collect their own data using picture graphs, bar graphs and tally charts. The students had a lot of fun asking each other questions from their tally chart Which one would you like to be most? They had to decide if they wanted to be a teacher, police officer, firefighter, doctor or an artist. Once they collected their data and totaled their tally marks they answered some questions using the data they collected. They were able to answer questions such as “How many children chose firefighter?” and “How many more children chose teacher than doctor?” Also, the students used higher level thinking skills when they analyzed their data and created their own questions. 

2nd Grade
Students in Mrs. Henige's second grade class recently participated in an archeological dig! Rather than ancient fossils, these second graders practiced digging for chocolate chips.

The class completed extensive research on fossils from extinct plants and animals using books, articles, and the Internet. They learned about how paleontologists gather their information. To extend their learning, the students hypothesized about the best way to excavate the chocolate chips from a chocolate chip cookie. Using toothpicks and their fingers, they tested their hypothesis. Most students found the toothpicks allowed them to be most successful. The students recorded their findings and drew conclusions as they engaged in the scientific process.

They all agreed that the best part of the dig was the end, when they got to eat the cookies!

!!!Stingel Elementary PTO Playground Fundraiser!!!

As the primary organization committed to serving in various capacities to better Stingel Elementary School, the Stingel Elementary PTO is currently seeking donations of both money and time from parents and the community in order to further develop the activities available to students and teachers outside of the classroom.

While the Stingel Elementary PTO has done several projects in the past couple of years, raising approximately $15,000 for two new swing sets, a climber, and tether ball poles, this year we are committed to raising a substantial amount of money to greatly improve the outdoor playground and surrounding area. Specifically, we are looking to provide the following:
1. Create an outdoor pavilion – this will allow our children a shaded space to congregate during recess as well as the ability to provide meetings outside as desired(approx. cost $10,000).
2. Add a new playscape to an existing vacant space on the playground – this will decrease/eliminate wait times on the existing playscape and provide our children with necessary physical activity(approx. cost $30,000).
3. Replace a set of swings on the playground – these sets of swings are dilapidated and need replaced (approx. cost $5,000).
4. Add rubber mulch to the existing pea gravel on the playground – this will provide added safety/comfort to our children on the playground(approx. cost $5,000).

These substantial improvements come at a fairly substantial cost; thus, we are looking to raise approximately $50,000 this year to provide the above to our children. Further, we will be soliciting volunteers to assist in building the outdoor pavilion.

We want the playground and surrounding area to be a safe and fun place for our children to play, and we would like your help in making that possible. Please consider making a donation online at https://www.youcaring.com/stingel-elementary-661507 or via the donation form below.

Further, if you would be willing to assist in volunteering your time or materials for the creation of the outdoor pavilion, or if you have any questions, please e-mail us at [email protected]com.

Thank you for your support!
