Hello and Happy Spring! I hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break! We will be starting state testing this month in grades 3-6. It is very important that your student has regular attendance during this time. Please ensure your student gets plenty of rest and eats a good breakfast. Encourage your student to do their best work on these exams. We all want their hard work and learning to shine through!
PARENTS OF SIXTH GRADERS:
Brixner and Henley Middle School Counselors will be at Stearns Elementary in early April to pre-register sixth graders for next year. Please read the information your student will be bringing home and make certain their teacher is informed which middle school your student will be attending.
IN THE NEWS:
The Klamath County School District is honoring its best this April with the fifth annual Crystal Apple Awards. Stearns Elementary School teacher Brittany Carr was honored with one of the eight awards. Carr is in her seventh year of teaching kindergarten at Stearns Elementary. The whole school sees the impact of the work she does in and out of the classroom.
Brittany Carr wakes up every morning excited to get to school and see her kindergarten students grow. “I’m so excited to be a part of their lives and part of their journey,” she said. “I hope the work I’m able to do with them makes an impact for them. They certainly make an impact on my life.”
In addition to wrangling a classroom of 5-year-olds, Carr is a member of the Collaboration Grant Committee, the P-3 Committee, the Stearns Leadership Team and she is the FIT Team Leader for Stearns. She helped organize the 2016 Holiday Craft Bazaar and helped Migrant Summer School Principal Ruben Paschal in developing pre-kindergarten classes for that program. She previously participated in the Stearns Booster Club and the KCSD Kindergarten Math Team. Outside of the school she is a “key spouse” volunteer with Kingsley Field for deployed service members and their families.
“Brittany Carr is the type of kindergarten teacher that you want every child to have,” said Stearns Principal Beth Clark. “Mrs. Carr has high learning expectations for every student in her classroom. She is a kind, caring and highly skilled teacher.”
Congratulations, Brittany Carr!
