Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

We hope that all of our Stingers had a great weekend!

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


Storrington Acts of Amazing

Although the month of December was a shorter month with the holiday break, it was another great month for our Storrington Stingers.  Collectively, they displayed 375 Acts of Amazing by showing Humility, Honesty, Bravery, Respect, Love, Wisdom and Truth.  Our Stingers have earned 1515 marbles so far this year.  Great job Stingers!

During our January Spirit and Recognition Assembly, we took the time to celebrate our December 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- Mason McIsaac, Aiden Hoadley, CJ Gardiner, Wyatt Nourry, Oliver McCallum, Piper Nourry, Tinley DeSa, Hudsyn Gervais, Marcus Roberts and Colin Williams.

1.      The student must be logged in to MS Teams using their Limestone account. The student’s camera and microphone should be on so that the student and tutor can communicate effectively. 

2.      The student should have the materials they need with them (e.g., students should have their homework assignment). The student should try to set up in an area in the home with minimal distractions for the tutoring  

3.     If a tutor is already working with a student, subsequent students will be placed in the lobby of the meeting and then be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis once the tutoring session for the previous student is completed. Tutoring sessions for Grades 1-6 will be about 20 minutes long and may be extended, if no other students are waiting. For Grades 7-10 sessions will start at 30 minutes and may be extended if no students are waiting.

4.     No tutoring on PA Days or Holidays.

-For a total of 10 days after the start any illness symptom, students and staff should continue to wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings (including schools and childcare, unless under two years old) and avoid non-essential activities where mask removal is necessary.

-Asymptomatic individuals with a positive COVID-19 test result do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If any symptoms develop, they should stay home and follow the recommended guidelines above.
