Principal's Message: 12/4/2021


Good Morning Parents and Families, 

It was a great week welcoming back students and staff after our Thanksgiving break! Our students continue to shine in and outside of the classroom. Members of our NJHS were back to service this week, this time at Stone as they continue to ensure our grounds look beautiful now that most of the leaves have fallen. 

We have a lot of exciting upcoming events the next two weeks. I look forward to highlighting each of them. Read below for more information and stay tuned for several updates in the new few weeks' Principal's messages. Wishing each of you and your families peace and joy during this holiday season. 

For more highlights and updates of life at Stone, please consider following @StonePanthers on Twitter. Please continue to reach out if you have any questions, concerns or to provide feedback.

Have a wonderful weekend, 

Meredith Norris
Stone Middle School
