    “It does not require many words to speak the truth.” Chief Joseph, Nez Perce

    November is National American Indian (or Native American) Heritage Month.  People that have been identified as American Indians have been living in North and South America since at least 12,000 BC. The American Indians were not a single nation. They lived in a large number of independent nations that sometimes cooperated with each other and sometimes fought with each other. Regardless of this, the impact of American Indian culture has been immense on the current society. Some American Indian facts:

    • Half of the names of U.S. states come from American Indian words
    • A very small partial list of other American Indian words that have been adopted into English includes: Caribou (snow-shoveler), chipmunk (red squirrel), moccasin, moose, opossum (white dog), pecan (nut), powwow (to have a vision), barbeque (a framework of sticks).
    • Some foods first grown and used by American Indians include: Maize (corn), popcorn, chewing gum, jerky, chocolate, tomatoes, and vanilla.
    • American Indian sports that have impacted current ones include lacrosse and shinny. Shinny is the basis of both field hockey and ice hockey.
    • Inventions and discoveries by American Indians include: aqueducts and canals, bunk beds, hammocks, using willow tree bark as a pain reliever (same chemical as is in aspirin), using petroleum (as fire starter, insect repellent, and moisturizer), rubber balls (used by the Olmec people as early as 1,700 BC).


    Stanlick School will celebrate Veteran’s Day on Monday, November 13. We will host local veterans for a faculty-made breakfast. This will be followed by an assembly to raise the flag, sing the national anthem, and thank our veteran’s for their service.


    Mrs. Platz will present her Hunger Day breakfast on Friday, November 17. This annual activity for fifth graders teaches students about worldwide hunger and the importance being thankful for what we have as well as how all of us can help people in need.

    November 15-17- Parent Teacher Conferences

    November 17- Picture Re-takes

    November 17- Hunger Breakfast

    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.
