Volunteer Thank You Breakfast June 17

It truly takes a village, and Stillmeadow staff and students appreciate the dedication and hard work put forth by the many parent volunteers who contribute so much to our school community.

Please join us in the Teacher's Lounge on Monday, June 17th at 7:45 am for a thank you breakfast honoring our many great volunteers. 
Please Return Library Books!

Mrs. Nathanson would like to remind Stillmeadow families that all books on loan from the media center are now past due and should be returned to school immediately.

Many students failed to return books by the June 3 deadline, which is complicating efforts to inventory materials and get the media center ready for summer programs.

Please take a moment to make sure there are no Stillmeadow library books at home.

Thank you for your help!
Incoming Kindergarten Summer Reading Program

Stillmeadow is offering a summer reading program for children entering kindergarten at the school this fall.
The five-day, 2-hour-long drop-off program is facilitated by Jodi Flom Nathanson, Stillmeadow's Media Specialist.

This is great opportunity for children to meet classmates and familiarize themselves with the media center before school begins in the fall.
