Last week Stingel students celebrated Red Ribbon/Drug Free Week by dressing in different themes each day to demonstrate that they are drug free.  Special guests came to lunch to share inspiring messages.  We would like to thank the Drug Free Seniors, Miss Ontario Leah Gombosch, and Lt. Amy Ivy for stopping by to speak to our younger students about the importance of making good choices and being drug free. 

Thanks to the Richland County Foundation this October our Kindergarten classes were able to visit the Little Buckeye Museum. There the students were able to use their imagination and creativity to participate in science experiments, put on a play, build with giant blocks, and so much more. Everyone had a great time; all of the students want to go back and visit again!
Third Grade 
Mrs. Davis' class is working on memorizing their multiplications facts. Students who master each set of facts earns a part of an ice cream sundae (spoon, bowl, ice cream scoops, and toppings). When they have mastered all of their facts students will be invited to an ice cream sundae party for all of their hard work! Students are using the xtra math website on the Chromebooks to practice their facts daily in math workshop.
Fifth Grade 
On October 17, 2017 over 100 fifth grade students , parents and staff participated in Astronomy Night at Stingel Elementary.  Warren Rupp Observatory in Bellville, Ohio visited Stingel bringing a wide range of telescopes for students to explore the night sky with.  The highlight of the night came later in the evening when the space station and Saturn were able to be seen.  Several of the volunteers from Warren Rupp shared their knowledge about astronomy and telescopes with those in attendance.  The evening was a success and there are plans to do it again next year.

!!!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!
