We are thrilled to announce this year's biggest fundraiser: StonewallPalooza at the House of Blues on Friday April 13th. 
 
Why We Fundraise
ALL money raised from auction goes directly back to our children in the following ways: Technology, Classroom & Library Supplies, Enhancements to our Music Program, Equipment for Advanced Fine Arts Projects, Facility Upgrades, & Enhancements to Curriculum.  This year the PTA used money raised from the last two auctions to equip each existing classroom with the same interactive screens installed in the new wing, so every student at Stonewall would benefit from new technology in 2018. ( see photo below)

 

Still Seeking Sponsors
We still have a handful of high profile sponsorships perfect for business looking for extra exposure or parents looking for a unique way to support the school and help underwrite this great event.  Opportunities include: Raffle, VIP Pre-Party, Welcome Drink, Taco Station, Bid Card, Kid Art sponsorships and more.

Notes from Nurse Johnson
 
As Health Services staff we are the eyes and ears in our school community. We are responsible for individual student care, public health surveillance and reporting, prevention and management of chronic disease, and so much more. For these reasons collaboration  between Health Services staff and our public health authority is crucial. We continue to monitor and report student daily absences for each campus to Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) as a part of influenza surveillance.  
 
Below are a list of  links that contain excellent information and resources for schools about influenza.

Coach Nelson's Wellness Weekly
It's MOVE MONDAY! We've got a forecast keeping us in the 60's and upper 50's. That's weather we can definitely stay active outside in for the near beginning of February. Keep your active shoes by the door! Did you know accessibility is the number one encourager or detour in maintaining an active lifestyle? Keep those things that help you MOVE in your eyesight!

Tomorrow is TRY TUESDAY. Make a bucket list of things you would like to try. Ask your kids to join in with their input. Make sure to cover all the categories- experiences, foods, places. Get creative in looking around Dallas. We can get stagnant in our space and shrink our options. Try a trip to a park you haven't been to.

Wednesday is WELLNESS WEDNESDAY. Ask your kids to help make a pre-emptive list. Make a list of all the things that help us stay well. We are the models for how our kids learn to take good care of themselves. Do you know what your wellness list is? It's harder for our kids to focus on their wellness habits when we are struggling with our own!

     
Deaf Culture Corner
 
If Deaf people are signing and I need to walk in between them, what do I do?!
 
You don't need to limbo in between them, simply sign "excuse me" and walk right on through. Look up "excuse me" in The ASL App!
