“I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.” Dr. Seuss
February was fun and warm. We had many days with above freezing temperatures (some around the 70s) and were able to get outside for recess many days. We celebrated Valentine’s Day. We took part in Jump Rope for Heart, and had two PTA challenges for healthy eating and exercising. Mrs. Platz’s and Mrs. Thomas’ Breakfast Book Clubs continued to meet and students continued to have impressive conversations about the books that they read. We also had our annual Science Fair where the students researched and presented various scientific experiments, theories, and facts. Lastly, we were able to conduct a successful infrastructure test for the spring administration of PARCC.
Welcome to March! It seems that Mother Nature has begun the month by making us pay for the nice February weather.
March is Women’s History Month, Music in Our School’s Month, and World Language Month. The first week of the month also contains Dr. Seuss’ birthday and is Read Across America Week in his honor. We began the month with students reading tributes to world language and music each day during the morning announcements. Mrs. Hack ran a fun, thematic week to celebrate Dr. Seuss and Read Across America. We will continue for the rest of the month to recognize contributions that American women have made to our history and country. This will also be done during morning announcements.

Stanlick School celebrated Red Ribbon Week!
The third grade attended an assembly by Jack Elsmore to teach them about the bad effects of cigarettes. All grades received Halloween safety tips from Officer Hale. Following this, the fourth grade learned about drug, alcohol, and tobacco use by playing Family Feud with Officer Hale and Officer Davis. The fifth grade watched a program by the Morris County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit. Sheriff Officers Carbon and VanValen along with their partners Willie and Django visited. After this presentation, the fifth graders released environmentally friendly balloons with their pledges to remain drug free. Mrs. Wilsusen from the Jefferson Township Municipal Alliance recited the pledge for the students before they released them. Stanlick thanks the PTA for arranging all of these events. We also thank Mrs. Wilsusen, Mr. Elsmore, Jefferson Police Officers Hale and Davis, Sheriff Officers Carbone and VanValen, and especially Sherrif Officers Willie and Django.
