Hawk Awards - There is still TIME to NOMINATE!!! 
Due to the low number of nominations the PTSA has received so far for their annual Hawk Awards, they are extending the deadline for nominations until Monday, April 3rd.

They know its been a busy few weeks prepping for Multicultural Night, so they wanted to give everyone more time.

PLEASE don't assume someone else will nominate a deserving staff or volunteer. There are so many at Stillwater! It takes just a few minutes to fill out the nomination form. Nominations can be done online on their website, or you can find paper nomination forms on their bulletin board.

Clic k HERE to submit your nomination!

Any questions, e mail MICHELLE !
 
Early Entrance to Kindergarten or 1st grade for the 2017-2018 school year
If you are requesting that your child enter kindergarten or first grade before he/she reaches the legal age of entry, you must schedule an appointment with the principal of your neighborhood school as soon as possible. The principal will provide you with information on the district's early entrance policy, fees, and process. An early entrance request must be received in writing by May 13 th  for evaluation to be scheduled. Note that only those children tested with exceptional intellectual and above average social skills are considered for early entrance. Early entrance admittance for qualified children is on a space available basis.

The price for testing has not changed this year. It is $250.00 for Kindergarten and $350.00 for 1 st grade.
