Hello, Stony Lane Families! On behalf of the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), I would like to say welcome back, or welcome to, Stony Lane Elementary School! While this is an unprecedented year for all of us, I could not be more grateful for the countless hours Ms. Hitchener, our teachers and staff, and school district administration have put in over the last several months to bring our children back to school as safely as possible – whether it’s in-person learning or distance learning from home. If we can all agree on one thing, it’s that whatever educational choice we made for our families, we are all working together to support one another and to be STONY STRONG! We, the PTO, look forward to supporting our teachers and staff with resources they need, finding new and creative ways of enriching our children’s in-person and distance learning education journeys, and working together to remain connected through community-building opportunities. Take a look at the list below and complete a couple of forms to see how you can start making a difference at Stony TODAY! To get to know your PTO Executive Board, hear about what we do, see what’s coming up, and ask questions, please join us for our first GENERAL PTO MEETING THIS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd, 7:00pm, via Zoom. All are welcome to join us! Brian Feroldi is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
