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. 

National Bus Safety Week

National Bus Safety Week is held during the third full week of October.  It is an opportunity to bring awareness to the safety and security of students on and around the school bus.  During the week, our Stingers will be participating in activities and lessons focusing on school bus safety.  As well, our Stingers will participate in bus safety presentations on Wednesday, October 18.


Storrington Cross Country Team

Congratulations to our Storrington Cross Country team who participated in the Regional Cross Country Championships on Friday, October 13.  All our Stinger runners did an amazing job representing Storrington with many of our Stingers qualifying for the LESSA Cross Country Championships on Thursday, October 19. 

We’re Looking for Reading Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to come to the school to read with our Stingers.  If you are able to volunteer on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and are interested in reading with students, please contact the office.  A valid CPIC is required for any reading volunteers.
