Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


We want to wish our Storrington community a happy Thanksgiving.  We hope it was a weekend of gratitude and reflection.  On behalf of all the staff at Storrington, we want to thank our Stingers and are truly grateful for the continued support of our families and school community.   


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

Storrington Acts of Amazing

The month of September saw our Stingers doing lots of amazing things!.  Collectively, they displayed 866 Acts of Amazing by showing Humility, Honesty, Bravery, Respect, Love, Wisdom and Truth.  We have set a goal of 10 000 Acts of Amazing this year and we are well on our way.  Great job Stingers!  


September Storrington Recognition Certificate Recipients

During our October 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 September.  Congratulations to this month’s recipients- Harris Robinson, Everly Sigouin, Wesley Sleeth, Addison Cheseborough, Wesley Jackson, Hazel Donohue, Tessa Poole, Brodie Hanmore, Ayden Gordon, Remy Mustard, CJ Gardiner and Logan Arcand.  

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.  

Fire Prevention Week

The week of October 9 to October 13 is Fire Prevention Week.  It is a week dedicated to learning about fire prevention and what to do in case of a fire.  During the week, our students will be learning more about fire prevention and fire safety.  Our friends from the South Frontenac Fire Department will be joining us Thursday, October 12 for fire safety presentations.

Storrington Cross Country Team

On Friday, October 13, our Storrington Cross Country team will be competing in the Cross Country Regional Championships at Fort Henry Hill.  We want to wish all our Stingers good luck and we know that they will all make us proud!
