Dear Stewart Heights Families,


The holiday season is upon us!

We are already well into the 2nd nine-weeks. The last day of the 2nd nine-weeks is January 12th and report cards will be issued January 18th. December 15th is a half day for students / faculty and is also our last day of school before the winter break. Students will return to school on Tuesday, January 2nd.

The first nine weeks was filled with many accolades of accomplishments related to academic and student sponsored activities. Students who earned straight A’s and satisfactory for conduct were treated to an all expensed paid trip to Chuck E. Cheese for our Straight “A” Trip this nine weeks. Parents and community members were invited to enjoy a Thanksgiving Meal on November 8th with their child(ren). We continue to reward students with prizes and certificates who win our weekly “Multiplication Survivor Contest” which is for third grade students and our “Writing to be a Winner” essay contest for grades 5K – 3rd. We also recognize students weekly who demonstrate PAWSITIVE behavior with prizes and certificates.

The months of November and December will be very busy! During the next couple of weeks, we will administer the NWEA MAP assessment again in Reading and Math for students in 5K – 3rd grades. These tests, coupled with teacher observations, help give us an idea of where our students are performing.

Some dates to remember are: Weekly Friday Activities: Wildcat Pride Prizes, Writing contest, Multiplication Survivor Contest, Reading Counts

I, as well as, the teachers and support personnel at Stewart Heights Elementary School will continue to meet the demand of the highest standards of performance for every child. We are committed to excellence and we will continue to nourish our commitment and dedication to the task at hand; our children. Thank you for your support!

Wildcat Pride

Good Character Award of the Week:
Good Character
Here at Stewart Heights we know that character is how you act when no one is looking and these cats are the perfect examples of that. We not only teach your children academic knowledge to make them successful, we want them to learn how to show good character. Believe me they never disappoint. December's character trait is Caring. Have your child tell you what caring means to them. 

Multiply BoyMath Survivor of the Week:Jucson Ndayisaba
Jucson Ndayisaba, Winner
 
This week's Math Survivor contest was the most intense yet. After a long battle it came down to two of our third grade students. We had to enter the lightening round. Our guys had thirty seconds to work on a speed drill. During that thirty seconds you could feel the tension and smell the graphite as it burned across the paper. After all the dust (and pencil shavings) cleared Jucson was declared our winner!
