Dear Stenwood Families:

To ensure adequate staffing for next school year, our process actually begins now!  Your child received a Student Intention Form today.  Please take a few minutes to complete the form for each child currently enrolled at Stenwood and have your child return the form to school tomorrow.  Having information about your plans for next school year helps us to solidify our numbers; our student numbers play a major role in the number of teachers assigned to our school.  Your quick turn-around is appreciated.  If you are uncertain of your plans, please simply write a brief note explaining your uncertain situation.   

In addition, the annual Survey of Preschool Children was sent home as well.  Please encourage all of your neighbors with children of kindergarten age to contact Mrs. Liz Wallen in the front office so that we can get all kindergarteners registered soon for the 2017-2018 school year.  And of course, if you have a rising kindergartener at home, please fill out this form, too.  This registration information, likewise, helps to determine the number of teachers assigned to our school. 

Thanks to those of you who have responded to the call to help support the school system’s proposed budget.  If you’ve not taken that opportunity, please do take action now and communicate with the Board of Supervisors and ask them to fully fund the budget that Dr. Lockhard, FCPS Acting Superintendent, has proposed.  I thank you for your assistance.  

Last week’s Pizza/Karate Night was a lot of fun!  Thanks to our PTA for organizing this enjoyable evening.
