Hoosier Hills Food Drive

The ambassadors of Stinesville Elementary are hosting a food drive from October 31st-November 11th. Please see their message below.

As ambassadors of Stinesville Elementary School, one of our main priorities is to give back to our community. Through the weeks of Monday, October 31st - Friday, November 11th, our school is participating in a Food Drive for Hoosier Hills Food Bank. Hoosier Hills Food Bank collects, stores, and distributes food to non-profit agencies feeding the low-income, ill, and children in south-central Indiana. As a school, we are going to collect over 2,000 lbs of non-perishable food items for the food bank. Each class will collect food items for two weeks, those items will be weighed in every morning and added to the classroom goal! The class with the MOST weight-in-food will win a PIZZA PARTY, sponsored by the Stinesville Ambassadors with help from the Stinesville PTO. ALSO, when our school reaches 2,000 lbs. Mr. Hopkins will dress-up like a baby for a whole school day! Remember to bring in non-perishable items to help your class WIN the class PIZZA PARTY!

Color Run 2016

Color Run 2016
The annual Edgewood Color Run was held on Friday, August 26th at the Edgewood Cross Country Course in Ellettsville.  Our SES Quarry Lads & Lassies from grades 3-5 tore up the course with their quick feet, laughter, and a little sweat along the way.  As our students ran through the woods and across the fields, parent volunteers were around each corner, ready to throw some color powder on our runners to brighten up their day.  Following the run, RBB Food Services provided some healthy snacks and water to help our athletes reenergize for the remainder of the school day.  Thank you to our volunteers and parents for their support in this fundraising venture.  It was a wonderful activity that created memories that we will hold onto for years to come.

Harmony 3 Family Access

We are switching our current Harmony Parent/Student portal to the New Harmony 3 Family Access and all parents should have received an email with the link to log in, as well as instructions for the setup. If you have not yet setup the new Family Access, please do so as soon as possible because the old version will be turned off on March 17th.

One of the advantages of the new Harmony 3 Family Access is that it allows parents and students to have separate accounts with their own user names and passwords to access information as well as set notifications. Because the accounts are separate, students will not be able to make changes to any of the settings made by parents.

In the new program you will be able to add all your students into one login and to see the following:

Progress Reports

Attendance

Discipline

Homework Agenda

Online Payments

Push Notification

The new site link is:

Harmony 3 Family Access

The link is also posted on the corporation as well as each building website.

We hope you enjoy the features of the new site.

4th Graders Visit Indiana State House

image
Our fourth graders had an amazing opportunity to attend the annual First Lady’s Tree Trim program at the State House. We arrived at school at 7:45 a.m. and were on our way before most students arrived at school for the day! This gave us time to walk to the State House and clear security before the program started. The special program included meeting Governor and Mrs. Pence, Santa and Mrs. Claus and hearing a wonderful middle school show choir sing some Christmas tunes. Many of the students got to shake Governor and Mrs. Pence’s hand, what a special experience! We learned about how Christmas trees are grown, harvested and even how we can recycle them after Christmas is over. Governor Pence read T’was the Night before Christmas to the students and shared how it was the Pence family holiday tradition to read it to their children on Christmas Eve. Mrs. Pence then took the fourth graders to the craft activity. She has taught for over 25 years in elementary classrooms, including art, so she was very excited to teach this craft to us. The students made an old fashioned Christmas tree ornament from twigs, gathered from the Governor’s Mansion, and strips of fabric tied on to the twig then cut to make the shape of a tree. They were fun to make and very special and unique to have. After we made our craft, we moved to the Capitol Rotunda where representatives from kindergarten to 5th grade lit a tree, including a very large one that represented all the people of Indiana.

Prior to our visit, we used this experience to learn about our executive branch of government and the roles of the Governor and First Lady. The students learned about the history of the State House and were very excited to see first-hand what we had talked about in the classroom. They found the stained glass dome of the rotunda, made in 1888, very beautiful and an incredible sight to see! We couldn’t leave without taking a picture on the steps outside the State House to capture the moment.

After an exciting morning we could not wait for lunch! We stopped at Steak ‘N Shake in Martinsville and had a delicious meal. The staff at the restaurant was very complimentary of our students’ manners and behavior.

This trip was truly an unforgettable experience for all of us!

SES Spell Bowl Places First!

image
On Thursday, November 19th, our SES Spell Bowl Team competed in the regional Indiana Spell Bowl held in Mooresvile, IN. Our team placed first in their division! The SES team was comprised of 4th and 5th grade students who tried out earlier in the year. Students met two times each week for the past two months, working to memorize over 750 words! The Spell Bowl competition is sponsored by Purdue University and the Indiana Association of School Principals each year. A special “thank you” goes to our Spell Bowl Coaches, Miss Blackard and Miss Krevda. Congratulations to our wonderful team in the state competition, bringing home first place for their site. Our students were excellent ambassadors for SES and the Stinesville community.

Veterans Day 2015

image
Students, staff and community members came together on November 11th to recognize the men and women who have served our country and are doing so today. Nearly 25 veterans were able to attend the Veterans Day Program held in the gym. Students in Mrs. Chestnut, Mrs. Walcott and Mrs. Noth’s classes gave brief presentations on the history of Veterans Day and shared a poem as well. Our Stinesville Quarry Choir, made up of 4th and 5th grade students, performed two songs in recognition of our special guests. If you would like to watch a video of the choir, visit our SES Facebook page.

Thank you to the men and women who have laid their lives on the line to make The United States of America the great country that it is today. Our freedom would not be what it is today without your sacrifices.
