    “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.


    Upcoming events:


    March 12- BOE Meeting

    March 14- PTA Meeting

    March 16- Spring Pictures

    March 16- End of Trimester Two

    March 17- PTA Tricky Tray

    March 20- Early Closing- PD Day

    March 27-29- Early Closing for Parent Teacher Conferences.

    March 30- No School- Good Friday- Begin Spring Break


    I would like to continue to remind parents/guardians of a few items. Please remember….

    • That children go outside for recess as long as temperature is 32 degrees (or above) and it is not raining. We have noticed a lot of students that do not have appropriate clothing for colder temperatures. Please make sure your child has a coat, gloves, and long pants with them.
    • To update the school of any change in contact information. This is very important as the cold, winter weather sets in to make sure that you are contacted in case of school closings
    • Children that are not taking buses in the morning should not be dropped off to school prior to 8:20 and must be dropped off no later than 8:35
    • To check the Parent Portal regularly. In addition to the “Gradebook”, I would ask you to please check the “Food Services” tab. Information on account balances, as well as recent purchases, can be found here.


    Think Spring- it’s almost here.

    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.
