"Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver." -Barbara de Angelis

Dear St. Stan’s Families:
There is a simple air of kindness on most days here at school. It is felt through the generosity and service of our parents, the dedication of our teachers and the good deeds and thoughtfulness of our students. We may not always be successful at kindness but we keep trying each day!
Tomorrow is field day and it appears the weather will provide us with the perfect back drop. Please remember to apply sun block and bug spray to your child before they get to school. If you could send your child with a reusable water bottle that has their name on it; it would be appreciated so that we can help protect the environment from all the paper cups we generally go through. This Sunday at 9am Mass we will be celebrating our Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Kathy Krolick. Immediately following Mass the Knights of Columbus will host a breakfast. I hope to see many of you there. On Tuesday, May 24th at 7pm our Partisi Music students will be performing in a recital to show off their musical accomplishments from this year. May 26th is St. Jude’s T-shirt day. Any student who participated and earned a St. Jude T-shirt this year can dress down by wearing the T-shirt.
This week, I wanted to take the time to answer questions about extra help that were brought up in the recent survey. All of our teachers are available for extra help with a note being sent in and a day being chosen that works for all involved. I also have teachers who offer recess time help for students who may not be able to stay after school. No student who is completing homework regularly and is in class consistently is ever refused extra help; if any parent or student encounters such an issue they should contact me immediately. I should clarify that extra help differs from tutoring. Extra help is available to help clarify concepts that are being taught in class; there are times when students struggle in a content area and would benefit from weekly reinforcement of that content area. We can provide you a list of student tutors who may be able to help your child if this is the case.
In His Peace,
Elena Malinconico, Principal
