As the 2014-2015 school year draws to a close, we would like to thank all of the Stony Lane parents, teachers, staff, and students for a wonderful year! Some special thank you’s:
First, a big congratulations and THANK YOU to Mrs. Champagne and Mrs. Vitone, who have both retired this year! At the end-of-the-year school celebration, they were presented with gifts to thank them for their years of service to the students of North Kingstown.
The Stony Lane PTO presented Mrs. Champagne with a bench installed on the Pamela J. Lemoi Playground with an engraved brass plaque (below), and a wine basket. Mrs. Champagne taught 16 years at Stony Lane and a total of 27 years in North Kingstown. Thank you, Mrs. Champagne, and enjoy your retirement!
The Stony Lane PTO presented Mrs. Vitone with retirement gifts as well: a clarinet to be used at the school (inscription below); and a set of wind chimes (engraved plaque below). Mrs. Vitone taught 7 years at Stony Lane and for 24 years in North Kingstown. Congratulations and thank you, Mrs. Vitone!
A BIG CONGRATULATIONS goes out to Ms. Dolan for winning the $1000 Galucci Scholarship! We anticipate wonderful things from you and for you in the future, and wish you the best of luck!
In addition, we would like to thank Rob Perry for coordinating the end-of-the-year BBQ, and thank all the parent volunteers who helped at the BBQ and made the last day of school so special for our kids! It was a great day, which the PTO was able to offer free to all students thanks to YOUR generous support throughout the school year!
Finally, the Stony Lane PTO Board would like to thank Principal Ferrario and the Stony Lane staff for presenting us with lovely end-of-the-year gifts. As the PTO, we do the work we do to benefit our student, support their teachers, and create a close-knit community, and seeing happy faces is all the thanks we need! Still, your acknowledgement and support means a lot to us, and we look forward to another wonderful year in 2015-2016! THANK YOU, ALL!
We will be doing a “Stony Summer” post in the next week or so, with photos of Stony students enjoying their summers! Please send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have some great photos and want to share them! Thanks, and have a wonderful summer!
