We have a busy week ahead of us at Stony! The book fair will be running all this week and will also be open during Harvest Fest on Friday. We are still in need of volunteers for the book fair on Friday afternoon (1:30-3:30pm) and during Harvest Fest. Please contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sherry at email@example.com if you are interested in helping out.
Harvest Fest registrations were due on Friday but if you missed the date you may still purchase tickets at the door for $15 per family. We appreciate your cooperation for paying for all the children who attend, since our costs are per person.
Our Harvest Fest committee has been working hard to make sure everyone has a fun evening. Some of the highlights for this year include:
- Mini pumpkin decorating (with stickers, no glitter; generously donated by Schartner Farms)
- Pumpkin walk
- Baked goods for sale; proceeds benefit the Lemoi Scholarship Fund
- Book fair in gym
- “Haunted” hallway with teachers’ trivia
- Hayrides, games, DJ, tattoo artist
- Popcorn, pizza, and desserts included!
We have a lot going on during Harvest Fest so here are a few handy reminders to help everyone stay organized:
This is one of the most popular events of the year, and it can’t happen without the help of LOTS of volunteers. However, we want you to enjoy the event with your family while you still get to teach your children the importance of being involved. So we have shortened our volunteer shifts to only one half hour per person. If you can volunteer a half hour of your time that night, email Sandi at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you! It’s volunteers like you who make Stony Lane great!
This past Friday, Stony Lane students were treated to a kindness assembly. During the assembly, the students sang two songs and Mrs. Lynch showed a kindness slide presentation. In addition, Mr. Ferrario gave each student a bookmark, bracelet and a pledge card.
In preparation for the assembly, our fifth grade ambassadors surveyed the student body on their own definition of kindness. At the assembly, they presented examples of what kindness means to the various grades. Great job, fifth graders!
