Dear Stenwood Families and Stenwood Staff,

As we come to the close of the school year, I want to take a moment to thank everyone for their contributions in making Stenwood such a great school.  First, thanks to our students—they brighten our days with their smiles, laughter, and enthusiasm for learning.  Parents, your partnership with us is so helpful and contributes greatly to student success.  And staff, your dedication and devotion to our students is so appreciated. 

We also appreciate all of the fun times together this year,—our whole-school student gatherings, Curriculum Night & Kindergarten Musical/Book Fair/Grace Arts Show, Help the Hive, Flip-Flop-Hop, and Field Day…just to name a sampling!  We look forward to next year in anticipation of continued fun gatherings. 

It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to a few staff members—we wish them well as they move to other opportunities and new adventures.  Congratulations to Kate Rosenbauer who recently got engaged.  She will be returning to her hometown in New York to teach, and this is where she and her fiancée plan on settling.  Also, join me in congratulating Derek Murray who is moving to the Richmond area and will be teaching third grade at The Collegiate School, a private school.  In addition, our kindergarten numbers for next year are not supporting four classes as we had this year, so we must say goodbye to Ms. Stacy Pekarik.  Ms. Pekarik will be transferring to Wakefield Forest Elementary where she will be teaching kindergarten.  Lastly, we again congratulate Mrs. Powers on her retirement!  Mrs. Powers, Ms. Rosenbauer, Mr. Murray, and Ms. Pekarik will be missed! 

I also want to thank you for your generosity for our sister school, Graham Road Elementary.  Because of you, these children will have much needed school supplies for any summer school programs and next school year.

Stenwood's Summer Reading Bingo

Summer will be here before we know it and we want all Stingers to keep reading.  All Stenwood students are encouraged to participate in Stenwood’s Summer Reading Bingo, Stingers are Readers.  Similar to a Bingo game, students are encouraged to spend the summer reading using the Stingers are Readers activity card as a guide.  All students who successfully complete a row, column or the diagonal and return the raffle ticket will receive a Stingers are Readers prize and be entered into the Grade Level Prize Drawings in September.  All students will receive the Stingers are Readers activity card with the final progress report.  Keep the activity card handy to track reading all summer!
