Hello Stanley Community

What is the next step for Stanley supporting the parcel tax?  We have the Phone bank over Spring break.  If you are going to be in town in one evening you could touch 20 to 30 families to support our children.  March 30th to April 4th.

Thank you for your support.

Hello Stanley Community.

Would you like to know more of what is going on at Stanley?.  Please come to the Stanley Parent Teachers Association meeting this Friday 3/21 8:45am in the Stanley library.  Everyone is welcome.

Did you know 100% of Stanley Staff are PTA members. It takes a village to raise quality children.  Working together we can achieve this goal.

Hope to see you Friday.

Hello Stanley Community

First a huge thank you to Tina Frechman, Carrie Daughters and Paula Carter for heading up the Stanley Social Friday night.  We were able to lower the admission cost, double the number of attendees, and comp 45 teachers/staff to come - all to achieve a break-even budget. One lucky teacher received a gift basket to have a family meal out each month for the next 12 months.  Our teachers and staff do make Stanley what it is.

Another huge thank you to all the volunteers for the Measure B phone bank.  Stanley had the roll-out first week and with diligent persistence of Julie Hurd (our Parcel tax captain) we filled all the needed positions.

Hope to see everyone at our March 21st general meeting at 8:45am in the Stanley Library.  Please also put March 26th on your calendar - our Rube Goldberg Science Expo is coming up.

Enjoy your family time together.

Hello Stanley families,

To expand our community connections at Stanley, the PTA has been given the green light to create a Facebook account for Stanley PTA.  We are looking for current 6th or 7th grade parent(s) that enjoy Facebook and would be interested in working together on one for our school.

Please email me so we can grow Stanley's presence on Facebook.

Thank you!
