A huge "Thank you" to all of our parents who volunteered, attended, and/or made donations towards the PTA School Auction. The profits will help us continue many of our programs, purchase necessary instructional materials, and support our school-wide technology initiative.
The K-2 Terra Nova Flyers in English and Spanish are attached. Please review them if you haven't already done so. Also attached is a flyer inviting you to J.L. Long's IB Showcase this Thursday evening. Earth Day at Fair Park is Friday thru Sunday. This is a great educational event that the whole family will enjoy.
We could use a few helping hands during morning drop-off! Help us supervise the playground, drop-off lanes and fill in at cross-walks when needed. Please click on the Sign Up Genius below if you have some time to help out in the mornings.
With the completion of construction, Anita St. is now an excellent spot to drop off students as they can walk directly up the fire lane to the White Top. Please be mindful of the location of No Parking zones along Anita and be mindful to not block our neighbors' driveways!
Stonewall, you rock!
A huge thank you to everyone who donated, sponsored, attended or bid on items for Stonewall Palooza! The event was a huge success, made possible by the contributions of every one of you.
If you purchased items at auction but did not take them home with you on Friday, please be sure to do so today or tomorrow. Coordinate with Clara Sepulveda for pickup at her home - 469-744-5668 or
We had so many amazing items this year that some were not bid on at auction. There will be a fire sale on the white top on Friday, April 27th.
Stonewall Garden recipes are out of this world!
Is that the sweet smell of dumplings in the air? It will be May 24th, at the garden's annual Harvest Event! Please consider sharing your family recipe and a sampling of your favorite homegrown foods with the Stonewall community.
Like last year, the event features culinary favorites from around the globe - the menu last year included mudammas, tallarines rojos, pakoras, sahtayn, and classic Texas potato gratin - all made with ingredients grown in the garden. Yum!
To tie into the theme of Special Events week, the event will have a galactic twist! It's a wonderful way for your children to show off their favorite home country spices to all of their friends. If you would like to know more about participating please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Unused and expired medicines in the home can potentially end up in the wrong hands and lead to accidental poisonings. In fact, medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisonings in the U.S. and, simply throwing these substances in the trash or flushing them down drain can result in harm to the environment.
Unwanted medications can be tempting to children and pets, and can result in unintentional poisonings. Expired medications are often ineffective because they have been kept past their expiration date or improperly stored.
Unused medications can make your home a target of theft by drug abusers.
Dispose of medications properly. Do not keep prescription medications around "just in case."
Inventory your medicine cabinet and other places you store your medicines.
In addition to the unintentional poisoning danger of unused and expired medications to individuals, there's also an environmental issue. When such drugs are flushed down a drain or into trash cans, they can end up in waterways and landfills. Contaminants from the prescription drugs can leach into the soil and water and affect the health of not only humans, but other species, which can then impact people.
It's MOVE MONDAY! Keep up the good work! You've been doing a great job getting you and your family moving! Grab those bicycles and scooters this week and walk, ride or scoot to school. The kids will enjoy the time with their friends and it gives parents a chance to slow down and have a conversation or two before the day gets going.
Tomorrow is TRY TUESDAY. Why not try a new outing! Whether it's a trip to a baseball game, Six Flags, or Scarborough Fair. Look for things the family can explore together. It keeps kids open to being curious!
Wednesday is WELLNESS WEDNESDAY. Here's a little trick for the parents struggling with those racing minds with all the things on the to do lists. Our nervous system can get out of balance. An easy reset is done by resetting the blood flow. Find a soft ground spot in your house. Lay on your back with your legs positioned up the wall. See if you can make 20 minutes.
Thursday is THIRSTY THURSDAY! Challenge your kids to see who can drink the most water. As the days get hotter we need more water to stay hydrated.
