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. 

Speech and Hearing Month

The month of May is Speech and Hearing month.  This is a month dedicated to raising public awareness about communication health.  It is also an opportunity to highlight the importance of early detection and intervention in the treatment of communication disorders.


Mental Health Week

Next week is Mental Health Week.  Mental Health Week occurs during the first week of May and is dedicated to bringing awareness to issues regarding mental health and reducing the stigma associated with mental health. 


Education Week

Education Week also occurs next week and provides school boards and schools with the opportunity to recognize and celebrate student achievement and the role that education plays in our lives. 


With Speech and Hearing Month, Mental Health Week and Education Week, we will be using various opportunities to highlight their importance on announcements, through classroom activities, lessons and shared readings.

Administrative Professionals Appreciation Day

Wednesday, April 26 was Administrative Professionals Appreciation Day.  It was a day to recognize our amazing Office Administrator, Ms. Cayla, for everything she does to support the Storrington community.
