Happy May! We have a very busy month ahead as we head towards summer break.
Students across Garden City were able to show off their school spirit during spirit week this past month. Stratford had a fun week with a different theme to dress up for each day. The week culminated with students sporting Garden City colors and an amazing pep rally held by GCHS students on Friday, April 17th, in advance of Homecoming on Saturday, April 18th. The winners of the Spirit Day poster contest also received their ribbons. Thank you to all who participated.
The PARP committee has set up another virtual event for the students in recognition of May as Mental Health Awareness Month. On Thursday, May 6th, Stratford and Stewart’s social worker Michele Vincent will read “How Big Are Your Worries, Little Bear”, by Jayneen Sanders. You can still register for this event through this link. Also, PARP is finishing out the school year with a fun competition where they will tally reading minutes to see which classes reads the most during the last two weeks of May. Watch your email for further details.
Stratford’s 5th graders had Science Day on Tuesday, April 27th and Friday, April 30th. Thank you so much to all of the 5th grade parents who donated to make these days a success for the students. The 5th grade teachers greatly appreciate your help.
Stratford’s Staff Appreciation Lunch is coming up on Thursday, May 13th. We want to celebrate and thank all of the wonderful staff at Stratford for everything they have done for our children this school year. Given the restrictions with Covid, we cannot have parent volunteers to help out at the lunch, but we would like your help in making this day special.
