Morning Announcements 10/2/2020
It is Friday, Oct. 2, 2020 and you made it through another week. I am so sorry you did not get announcements yesterday. Mrs. DeBritton was in a meeting. We are so proud of you. Keep up that hard work.
Our first club is starting next week!!! It is a virtual Origami Club and it will begin October 8. Mrs. Thach is the teacher in charge and I have attached the flyer for you to upload the google classroom code. The flyer will also be on our website. Learn how to fold paper into animals and geometric shapes.
Parents, we should have our PTSA Totem website up by next week so look for an email regarding joining our PTA! I have also attached a parent flyer for Love and Logic which is a free class for making parenting and teaching fun and rewarding rather than stressful and chaotic .Check it out!
I still need some parents who are interested in becoming elected members of our Site council. If you are interested in working with our teachers, classified personnel and admin to continue to make Stacey the best middle school, then please send me your name. We will be starting our school site council meeting on October 14 at 5 pm through zoom. I have one parent who has expressed interest but we need three on our council. We only meet about 4 -5 times a year. Anyone can attend our meeting but only elected members can vote.
Lastly, I know many of our students and parents are asking about our WSD opening date for hybrid. We are working hard to develop a schedule that is equitable for both hybrid and virtual students and a decision with more formation should be coming in the next week or so, so stay tuned.

September 8th - Mrs. DeBritton Message
Hello Stacey families,
I hope you were able to enjoy your Labor Day weekend even with the excessive heat. Here are some updates:
Enjoy your week!
Wednesday, September 2nd
Hello Stacey Parents and Students,
We had a successful first day of virtual learning. It went very well with just a few hiccups. I know some students had difficulty logging on but overall we were able to get to troubleshooting quickly. It was awesome to see all of the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who were on Zoom with me or Mrs. Baird. They were amazing.
I have posted the Powerpoint presentation that we did with students and the videos (they are embedded in the powerpoint) that we showed students on our school website if your child or you wanted to review anything.
Tomorrow students will log into their homeroom for attendance and then log into their period 1,3,5 and 7 classes. Your child should have received the Google Classroom logins for their period 1, 3, 5, and 7 classes from their teachers today, so please check to make sure they have the login code for the correct class.
Have a wonderful evening.
