Stingel News

The 2017-2018 Kindergarten school year is off to a great start in Miss Kiliany’s room! In addition to learning our ABC’s, color words, counting, and writing our names we have had the privilege of joining Christie McElfresh for gross motor activities once a week. Christie comes into our room and introduces new activities we can continue using in our classrooms during the week every Tuesday. All of our students really look forward to this. It’s so important to remember that if you can engage student’s bodies and minds together, you’ll have a class that is eager and willing to learn because their movement demands have been met. See the picture below for an example of the movement break we did last week!
Second Grade
The second grade students in Mrs. Eddleblute's class have just finished their first chapter in the Go Math! series. Over the last month, they have been learning important number concepts such as, even and odd numbers, place value, different ways to write numbers, and counting patterns within 100 and 1,000. Each student was able to manipulate with tens and ones blocks, and practice using a hundreds counting chart.
Third Grade
The year is off to a great start! Miss Lusk's third graders have already been working very hard getting back into a school routine. One of our most exciting adventures of the first week was getting to log on and use the reading room in Reading A-Z! Each student has individually logged on and begun reading. The students have even used their at-home access codes to read and interact more with books that have been assigned, as well as free choice reading books. This reading program will also be a great resource to use on our new classroom chrome books. We are eager to get to use this program more throughout the year!
Fourth Grade
Off to a good start...students in Mrs. Kral's 4th grade classroom are getting reading practice using A-Z on the Chromebooks.
Fifth Grade
Mrs. Benavides’ class are engaged and thrilled to have new technology in the classroom. The students show great interest using their devices during daily lessons. It is great to see each student discover new ways to learn. Our class uses the Chrome books during reading, writing, research, and many other activities. Some of the fifth graders have had experience with a variety of technology in past grades, so it has also been a great learning opportunity for the teachers.

!!!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 stingelelementarypto1@yahoo.com.

Thank you for your support!
