Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


We hope that all our Stingers had a great weekend.

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

Black History Month

During the month of February, Storrington students will recognize Black History Month.  Black History Month is a way for Canadians to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians.  Through their work and dedication, they have helped to enhance and define the Canadian culture and to make Canada into the country that it is today. Please take the time to discuss, with your child, the importance of why we recognize and celebrate Black History Month.

Storrington Spirit and Recognition Assembly

Due to the inclement weather and bus cancellations, our Storrington Spirit and Recognition Assembly will now be held on Monday, January 29 at 10:00.  We encourage our Storrington community to join us for the assembly.

PA Day- Friday, February 2

A reminder that Friday, February 2 is a PA day. 

Kindergarten Registration for September 2024 Now Underway 

Do you have a child ready to start Kindergarten this September? If your student is four or five by the end of December, now is the time to register. Limestone offers both English and French Immersion programs that build strong foundations in reading, writing and math. We cannot wait to welcome your new student this fall. For more information, please visit https://bit.ly/Kinder_2024.  


Amendment to School Year Calendar 2023-2024 – Total Solar Eclipse 

This is a reminder that the 2023-2024 school year calendar has been amended so that the April PA Day, originally scheduled for Friday, April 12, 2024, will now occur on Monday, April 8, 2024. This change does not add an additional PA Day for the school year, but simply adjusts the date of the April PA Day due to the total solar eclipse on April 8. April 12 will now be a regular school day. An updated 2023-2024 school year calendar has been posted to the board website.  

Important Changes to the Report Card

School Council Candy Grams Fundraiser

A reminder that our Storrington Student Council will be selling candy grams (to be delivered on Valentines Day) until Monday, February 12.  Candy grams will cost $1.00 each.  With every 5 candy grams purchased, 1 candy gram will be donated anonymously to a student who would not otherwise receive one.  The student council will ensure that all students in Storrington will receive a candy gram and that no one feels left out.  The student council has voted and decided that all proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the library renovation and to purchase new books.  Thanks in advance to our Stinger community for your continued support of student council initiatives.

-Mrs. Bowen and the Storrington Student Council
