Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


On behalf of all Storrington staff, we want to wish our Stingers a safe and healthy holiday break.  Hopefully, your holiday break is filled with moments you will remember and cherish.  As we reflect on the first four months of school, it is important that we continue to recognize everything to be grateful for.  As a staff, we are grateful for our Storrington community and everything that you have done to support our Stingers. We wish you all health and happiness and we can’t wait to see our Stingers in the new year.  

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

Storrington Acts of Amazing

The month of November saw our Stingers doing lots of amazing things! Collectively, our Stingers have displayed 2260 acts of Amazing by showing Humility, Honesty, Bravery, Respect, Love, Wisdom and Truth.  We are almost a quarter of the way to our goal of 10 000 Acts of Amazing this year.  Great job Stingers!  

November Storrington Recognition Certificate Recipients

During our December Spirit and Recognition Assembly, we took the time to celebrate our September 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 November.  Congratulations to this month’s recipients-  Emmelin Doyle, Abby Azulay, Cora Knapp, Alivia Shaw, Blake McCallum, Preston MacPherson, Wesley Knapp-Bain, Harley Colby and Xander Williams.
