“Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.” Kay Redfield Jamison

Dear St. Stan’s Families:
The hard work of studying and learning for this school year has come to an end. Exams have been taken, books have been read, equations have been solved and history has been retold. The summer awaits each and every one of our students and now learning takes on a new dimension that of play. Never under estimate the value of what is learned during play. Yes, there are summer assignments to work on, to make sure the “summer slide” is minimized but in addition to that, your children will have the opportunity to explore the world and learn through play. Let them have that opportunity…childhood is certainly fleeting and should not be missed.
Your child(ren) has received the summer work packet, remember it must be turned in no later than September 2nd and a grade will be given for this work for the first marking period. Additionally, you’ve also received a tentative calendar for the 2016-2017 school year. Next year we are welcoming in many new students and I know they will be part of our school family in no time. The office is open this summer Monday through Friday from 9am to 1pm. Enjoy your summer, enjoy your children, rest, relax, and count the blessings in your life. We will be waiting for your return next year with open arms.
In His Peace,
Elena Malinconico, Principal
