January Blog from Mrs. Watkin's Class

Mrs. Watkin's third grade students at Stinesville have been researching penguins. They reserched Emperor, Rockhopper, and Yellow-eyed penguins just to name a few. The students learned several vocabulary words that go along with penguins: cuddle, frozen, preen, Antarctica, and flippers. We watched some neat video clips on penguins. The students then constructed their own shutter books to hold all their penguin information.
A special shout-out to Nicholas Latimer, Haylie Shoemaker, and Kenzie Jacobs for doing an awesome job on their shutterbooks!

Stinesville Elementary is an “A” School!

image
On December 18th, students and staff held a celebration in the gymnasium for Stinesville Elementary being recognized by the Indiana Department of Education as an “A” School. Schools are “graded” based on student academic performance and growth on the ISTEP+ assessment given in the spring each year. Mr. Hopkins talked with the students and staff about what it means to be an “A” school and how it takes the hard work of everyone in the school, with the support of the families and community, to make Stinesville Elementary so successful. Following the brief talk, the staff challenged a group of 5th grade students to a rousing game of dodgeball/protect the pin. The entire school went “nuts” as the students defeated the staff, knocking down all three of their pins! The PTO provided popsicles for all students in the school at the conclusion of the celebration.

SES believes it is important to celebrate the successes of our students and staff. Activities like this allow the students to see the great work they are doing, but also have a little fun along the way!ate the successes of our students and staff.

The students looked amazing in their festive outfits, and the gymnasium was beautifully decorated. A big hooray to parents and teachers for working hard to get the kids prepared for a magical night.
