Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

We hope that all of our Stingers had a great Easter holiday and enjoyed the long weekend. 

Please see the information below in this week’s Week at a Glance.  

International Day of Pink

Wednesday, April 12, 2023 is the International Day of Pink.  The day is dedicated to creating a more inclusive and diverse world.  It is also a day to stand up to homophobic and transphobic bullying and discrimination.  We encourage all our Stingers to wear pink to show their support and solidarity towards equity and inclusion.

Storrington Acts of Amazing

It was another busy month for our Storrington Stingers.  Collectively, they displayed 423 Acts of Amazing by showing Humility, Honesty, Bravery, Respect, Love, Wisdom and Truth.  Our Stingers have earned 2989 marbles so far this year.  Great job Stingers!  


March Storrington Recognition Certificate Recipients

During our April Spirit and Recognition Assembly, we took the time to celebrate our March Storrington Recognition Certificate Recipients.  These students were recognized by their classroom teacher and classmates for consistently showing Respect, Honesty, Humility, Love, Wisdom, Truth and Bravery during the month of September.  Congratulations to this month’s recipients- Blake Lakins, Sadie Roberts, Megan Wheeler, Hannah Spencer, Kendra Donnelly, Liam Adams, Brodie Young, Sophia Colby and Everly Hogan.
