    Nurturing Young Learners!

    Ms. Dymond

    Dear Parents,

    As principal of Stix Early Childhood Center it is my privilege to work in a school environment that nurtures, educates, and supports children through their early years in education.  At Stix we work diligently to provide children with autonomy as they master academics and take risks as they learn new skills and form new ideas.  We believe strongly in our responsibility to help teach academics and character so that every child will have the tools to be a successful life-learner and a contributing member of their community.

    This School Year 2020/2021 presents new challenges for parents, staff and students. We understand that learning virtually for our students requires a lot of parent time and support. Please communicate with your child's teacher if you encounter problems with lessons, technology, or assignments. We will work together to ensure learning continues while also addressing the social and emotional needs of everyone. Our school theme this year is, "Champions of Character". We will be looking for ways to help the children continue developing positive character traits that will serve them throughout their lives. 

    Parents are always welcome at Stix and are encouraged to become involved.  You play a vital role in your child's education and when we work together your child will reap the rewards!


    Dr. Diane Dymond

     Instructional Learning Center

    Welcome to the Instructional Support Center (ISC) at Stix Early Childhood Center!


    We are excited to have the children join us for an exciting day of fun-filled learning!  We are going to have a great time learning and laughing together!  Each will begin with breakfast in the classroom until class circle begins.  After class circle, we will have independent literacy activities and centers.  Our classes will meet online again each morning at 10:00 AM for online learning in phonics and writing.  The morning classes will end with recess proceeded by lunch in the classroom. Math work at centers and online guided lessons will engage students until nap time.  When students awaken from their nap, they will have STEM activities followed by Related Arts classes. Each school day will end with read-aloud activities.


    We want students to be able to attend the ISC at Stix Early Childhood Center every day, so as a courtesy bus transportation is provided each school day if parents elect to use it.  Students who ride the bus will be picked up and dropped off daily at their door for a caring adult to ensure their safe departure (AM) and arrival (PM).  If parents elect not to take advantage of bus service, then you may drop off and pick up your child by door number 6 where a caring member of our staff will be waiting.


    When students arrive at the ISC @ Stix Early Childhood Center, they will receive breakfast in their classrooms and eat with their classmates.  Each classroom will have a maximum of 10 students with one classroom teacher and one teacher’s aide.  Students will remain with their class for the entire day including recess, lunch, and dismissal.  Handwashing will occur frequently throughout the day.  We want students to be comfortable so they should wear comfy clothes that allow them to fully participate in centers, floor activities, and free play.  They do not have to wear a uniform.


    At 3:15 PM, students who are riding the bus will be escorted to the bus by their teacher and an aide.  Students who are being picked up will be escorted to door number 6 to meet their parent(s). 


    Arrival Procedures for ISC at Stix:

    Due to safety precautions parents will not be able to enter the building.


    8:15 – 8:30 Car Drop-off Procedures:  Parents will pull onto the parking lot from Tower Grove Avenue and proceed to the far right side of the parking lot. (Area is marked with an orange line and blue “No Parking” paint). Pull up to where the staff are located and we will:

    1. Take your child’s temperature
    2. Escort your child into the building through Door # 6

    3:00 – 3:15 Car Pick-up Procedures: Cars MUST HAVE a Stix Car Rider Tag displayed on the dashboard. (These will be distributed on Monday, August 31, at arrival time). Parents will follow the same procedure upon entering the parking lot. Staff will call for the child to be escorted out of the building via Door # 6 and placed in the car.
