Students and families may also shop for spirit wear and other Stillmeadow-branded items during this week's Holiday Fair. 

Contact Theresa Baker with any questions.
Building Access for Report Card Conferences

Mrs. Asaro would like to remind parents arriving for Report Card Conferences that there is no access to the building during student dismissal . This policy is in place to ensure a safe and orderly dismissal process for Stillmeadow Students. Visitors will be permitted to enter the building when dismissal is complete at approximately 12:55 pm. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
Parent Workshop: Understanding Reading Assessments

Mrs. Grant and Mrs. Roata are hosting a workshop to help parents understand the various reading assessments (DIBELS, TRC, RI) administered to Stillmeadow Students and how to support reading at home. This is your chance to ask questions about reading assessments and learn strategies to encourage reading outside the classroom.

In addition, Mrs. Nathanson will review the various digital resources that are available to your child.

This workshop will be offered twice this week as follows:

  • Wednesday at 1 pm
  • Thursday at 2 pm
