Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope you are enjoying your summer. The Stix Staff and I look forward to meeting our new families and welcoming back our returning families for the 2016/2017 School Year! I hope you find helpful information for the new school year in this letter.
First Day of School: Wednesday, August 17, 2016
Student Registration for ALL NEW STUDENTS and RETURNING PK and K STUDENTS:
Registration will begin Monday, August 1 through Friday, August 12. All kindergarten students, even if they attended Stix in preschool, need to be registered prior to school starting. Parents please bring the following:
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
Meet the Teacher Night - Mark your calendars!!!
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 Monday, August 15, 2016. Please come by the school anytime between 4:30 - 6:30pm. 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. You may park in the bus lane for this event.
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.
Please ensure you complete the appropriate school forms to indicate all friends and family members who 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 week 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 a bus on a daily basis. NEW this year, we will have a new procedure for pick-up students that involves color-coded cards. This process will help ensure the safety for all of our children. The process and cards will be explained at registration and during Meet the Teacher Night.
Please post the additional page with “Important Dates to Remember” somewhere in your home so you won’t miss these important dates for the 2016/2017 School Year!
