Stenwood Hive Happenings

Hive Happenings Newsletter

Dear Stenwood Families, 

Wow!  What a year!  We have so much to celebrate!  Thank you to the amazing PTA for the Variety Show yesterday.  It is a huge undertaking and it was so wonderful to see all of the very talented Stingers we have at Stenwood.  If you missed the show, here is the link to the recording.  

Today we will be celebrating our 6th grade students!  Congratulations to each one of them.  If you would like to watch their Promotion Ceremony, it will be live at 10:30am.  

We will be sending out our annual summer letter through the mail before school begins.  Please be on the lookout for it as it includes an immense amount of information.  For planning purposes, Open House will be on Thursday, August 17th.  Our rising kindergarten students will have Open House in the morning, and our 1st - 6th graders will have it in the afternoon. 

Today is a 2 hour early release, we will begin Kiss N Ride dismissal at 1:20 so that we can also wave goodbye to our bus riders.  

We hope that everyone has a wonderful summer filled with reading!
