Stottlemyer Latest News
Every week I will highlight a classroom's hallway artwork. This week I am highlighting the beautiful artwork created by our students in both Ms. Christine's and Ms. Andrea's SXI classrooms! They did winter-theme projects, highlighting all the fun winter activities and cold-weather animals!
We are so excited to announce that our Principal, Dr. Anderson, welcomed baby boy Connor to the family 1/26 at a perfect 8lbs, 6oz. Mom, dad, and big sister Andrea are over the moon and loving time as a family of 4.
During Dr. Anderson's 12 week maternity leave, I (Ms. Amy) will be the substitute principal. For those who don't know me, I am typically the school's social worker. You likely have seen me zooming around the school, normally with a big smile on my face (like the picture below) because I absolutely love working with our students and families! We hope you will only notice this temporary change of administration when you see a different face in the office though please feel free to contact me if questions/issues arise.
I look forward to seeing and meeting even more of our wonderful families over the next 12 weeks!
We have some snow in the forecast for this week. While I am not predicting that we will have any days off, I wanted to take a minute and review how the district handles snow days. Only the superintendent can decide whether or not we have school when there is winter weather. He uses a number of different reports including how the road conditions will be in the morning to decide. No matter which program you are enrolled in at Stottlemyer, we follow the WWCS for school closures.
If school is canceled you will be notified in the following ways:
- Robo call from the district
- Dojo post from me or Amy
- Email from me or Amy
- Pop up notification if you visit any of the school/ district websites
- News and radio stations will report the closure
We had a wonderful first week back at school. Many children did a great job following the routine and getting back into the flow of class. Please remember to try to be at school on time in the morning as this gives students the best start to each day.
For those who are wondering, I will continue to be at school until my baby is born and will return in mid April. While I am gone, our social worker, Amy Vallerand, will be asking as the building principal. If you have any concerns or need support from the office she and Becky and Johnathan will be happy to help. Ms. Amy will also have access to my ClassDojo and email so you can still use my contract information if needed.
November has been a very exciting month for many of our students. Our Wayne Memorial High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team is in the National Preseason Top 40 for the first time. We are proud of all the hard work and energy put into the program.
Students from our elementary and middle schools had the opportunity to visit Michigan State University, where they toured the campus and got to watch a women's basketball game. Another group of middle school students visited Lawrence Technological University and participated in STEM day. HYPE Athletics made a $10,000 donation to our PBIS program, which provides students with positive behavior with a one-day pass to the facility. We continue to work with our community partners to offer our students the most hands-on and comprehensive opportunities.
