Dear Stingray Parents and Guardians,

Parent Conferences are next week and our goal is 100% attendance. Please be sure to arrive on time and respect the time frame assigned.  Teachers are always available for follow-up emails or meetings.

It’s the Holiday Boutique on the 13th!  So many families have signed up to be vendors and I am eager to shop.  Thank you to Alexis MacGregor and her Social Committee Team for putting this annual event together.  

The PACT-sponsored Stanford Blood Drive is tomorrow, Saturday, Dec. 2nd.  Thank you to Katy Crain for organizing!

See you all next week at parent conferences!


Warm Regards,

Terri Lambert

Family Giving Tree

Family Giving Tree fulfills the holiday wishes of 80,000 local children, adults, and seniors in need. In the Stevenson office, there are wish cards and an envelope if you’d rather donate gift cards or cash/checks. Please consider selecting a wish card and commit to bringing in the new item that is requested, unwrapped, and be sure to include a new toothbrush with every gift. Instructions are on the cards, and I’m happy to answer any questions. All gifts are due back to the office by December 7th. You can also bring new, unopened toys, and the value should be between $25-$50. My kids love picking out a tag and shopping for a special gift to donate, it’s become a fun family tradition we look forward to. I’m excited to see how many gifts our Stevenson community can contribute this year!
