Dear Parents,

The safety of our students is our first priority at Stanfield School.  In assessing our current safety needs and to ensure all students and staff are safe while at school, all visitors, including parents, must come to the office when they arrive.  No one should go to any other area in the school for entrance.  All parents may drop off any supplies, lunchboxes, notes or other items in the office.  We will get those items to your child.  

Parents will not be allowed to walk students or items to classrooms.  Teachers must supervise students and begin the day without interruption.  Thank you, in advance, for your attention to this request.

If you have a scheduled conference, meeting or eating lunch with your child, please sign in at the office and wear your visitor sticker at all times while on campus.  All staff members will be addressing any visitor that is not wearing a sticker and ask them to report to the office.

Students are dismissed at 2:45 pm.  If your child is a car rider, please pick them up after the second bell rings. The first bell is to release bus riders to the bus parking lot.  If you walk in to get your child, please do not go past the double doors in the entry area.  A staff member will call for your child if you tell them at the door.  Grade level teachers will be on duty to watch each student leave with a custodial parent/guardian.  This is another way to keep our students safe.  

Thank you for your attention to these requests that provide our students and staff with a more secure school environment.  If you have any questions, please call the school office at 704-961-5800.

Mrs. Morton

Something to think about!

Student A reads 20 minutes five nights of every week;
Student B reads only 4 minutes a night...or not at all!

Step 1: Multiply minutes a night x 5 times each week.
Student A reads 20 min. x 5 times a week = 100 mins./week
Student B reads 4 minutes x 5 times a week = 20 minutes

Step 2: Multiply minutes a week x 4 weeks each month.
Student A reads 400 minutes a month.
Student B reads 80 minutes a month.

Step 3: Multiply minutes a month x 9 months/school year
Student A reads 3600 min. in a school year.
Student B reads 720 min. in a school year.

Student A practices reading the equivalent of ten whole school days a year.
Student B gets the equivalent of only two school days of reading practice.

By the end of 6th grade if Student A and Student B maintain
these same reading habits,
Student A will have read the equivalent of 60 whole school days
Student B will have read the equivalent of only 12 school days.
One would expect the gap of information retained will have widened considerably and so, undoubtedly, will school performance. How do you think Student B will feel about him/herself as a student?

Some questions to ponder:
Which student would you expect to read better?
Which student would you expect to know more?
Which student would you expect to write better?
Which student would you expect to have a better vocabulary?
Which student would you expect to be more successful in school....and in life?
