November was another busy month for Stratford schools. As we rush into the frenzy of the holidays I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who makes our Stratford school such a unique and special place. Thank you to the parents, the amazing students, the administration and the teachers. We are blessed to live in such a caring and involved community and I am extremely grateful for all of you, thank you for all that you do!
November 4 was picture retake day at Stratford. Irvin Simon photographers will be in touch with proofs and ordering forms, please be sure to check your inboxes and folders.
On Thursday, November 17, second grade parents were treated to a Thanksgiving performance like no other. The always talented second grade class shared songs and performances including the famous “Turkey Tango”. The event was held in the school auditorium and families and students were delighted to come together to celebrate the holidays.
December will be filled with many more exciting events for our Stratford community. The Beautification Committee is set to begin their winter project including Deck the Halls with Unity. Mr. Hartigan and Mrs. Quezada are also encouraging students to bring in a family photo or card. These will be placed on their lockers to help celebrate the Holidays. The halls of Stratford will be adorned in style and will include handmade ornaments that the students will be creating themselves. Please be on the lookout for further information if you would like to assist.
The Polar Express event was held on December 2 and was a huge success. The second and third graders were able to punch their golden tickets care of our trusty conductors, Mr. Hartigan and Mrs. Quezada. The children were treated to a private showing of the movie in their pajamas while their parents were able to socialize in the cafeteria. Thank you to our amazing Family Fun Committee and extra thank you to Alaina Baebler, Danielle Livingston, Vita D’Angelo, Megan Conlon, Courtney Robertiello, Hana Noble, Katie Miller, Tanya Bankewitz, Claire Reynolds and Suzanne Rowan. For anyone who missed the event, PARP will be bringing back the virtual Polar Express later this month so be on the lookout for further details.
I hope everyone had a delicious and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday and is excited to see what December brings!
