Dear Parents and Guardians,

Although summer is just beginning, the first day of school is not that far away!   Teachers, staff and I have been planning and preparing for the new school year and look forward to meeting our new families and welcoming back our returning families!  In this letter you will find important and helpful information concerning the new school year.


Back to School! First Day of School:    Monday, August 17, 2015


Student Registration for ALL NEW STUDENTS and RETURNING PK and K STUDENTS:

Registration times will be from 9:00am - 12:00pm & 1:00pm - 3:00pm each day. 
The office closes for lunch from 12:00 - 1:00 each day.

Registration will begin Tuesday, July 28 through Friday, August 7.  All kindergarten students, even if they attended Stix in preschool, need to be registered prior to school starting.    Parents please bring the following:

  • Magnet Acceptance Letter (if you received one)
  • Birth Certificate
  • Proof of Address (unpaid utility bill for example)
  • Shot Record (Immunizations) and copy of physical exams

Returning Pre-Kindergarten Students:

You will need updated immunizations and physical records.

Upon completion of the registration process, you will be given the information concerning

your child’s teacher and classroom for the 2015/2016 school year.

Meet the Teacher!

In order to help each student feel comfortable with his/her new classroom and new teacher, we will be hosting a "Meet the Teacher" event on Thursday, August 13th.  Please come by the school anytime between 3:00 - 5:00pm.  Although teachers will still be making the final touches on their classrooms, this is an opportunity for you and your child to see the new classroom, meet the teacher and calm any fears either of you may have!  New families can also take this opportunity to familiarize yourself and your child with the playground, library, cafeteria and bus drop-off area.

 Open House
Open House:
 On Tuesday, September 15th, we will be having an Open House for all students and families.  We will begin the evening in the cafeteria at 6:00pm with a short presentation about the coming year.  Then parents will go into their child's classroom for the teacher's presentations.
School Uniform Policy:                                               Uniforms

The current student uniform policy for Stix is:

Shorts, pants, skirts and jumpers in:   black, tan or navy.

Shirts with collars, no emblems (except for Stix emblems/logos) solid colors in: white, red, blue, yellow and green. Stix wear (t-shirts) are always acceptable to wear – we hope to have a “Stix Wear Sale” sometime in the fall.


Student Dismissal:

Please ensure you complete the appropriate school forms to indicate all friends and family members whom you allow to pick your child up from school.  You can include as many adults (age 18 or older) as possible. We cannot allow anyone to pick up a student if his/her name is not listed on the school forms. Forms will be sent home the first day of school with your child for our returning families. Questions concerning this policy can be answered by any office staff member. This form is required for all students, even if your child rides the bus on a daily basis. 

Cell Phones  
Cell Phones:
We are requesting that parents DO NOT USE cell phones while driving on the parking lot or while on the school premises.  Out of courtesy for our staff and students, please do not use your cell phone when you are picking up your child or while you are in the front office.  Thank you for respecting the environment that we are striving to establish in our school.
Soda          Chips
Soda & Chips for Lunch:
Together with the district, we are trying to help establish eating habits for our children.  Breakfasts and lunches are well-rounded meals that include vegetables and fruits.  In the past we have had children bringing large bags of chips such as Hot Fries, Fritos, Doritos, etc. to supplement their lunch.  If your child receives a school lunch, please do not send additional foods such as chips, fruit drinks or soda.  If you pack your child's lunch, please do not include large bags of chips or any kind of soda.  If you need clarification on this request, please speak with Mrs. Dymond.
