Ahead in November & December

Posted by Rebecca Olgierson on 11/28/2018

I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving break. If your life is anything like mine, December is about to get crazy! So, this letter is going to have to suffice for December. Here are some PA activities we’d like to make sure are on your radar:


Parents’ Night Out this Saturday, Dec. 1
Plan a night out at Casey’s Bistro & Pub, on East 29th Ave., in Stapleton, featuring musical entertainment from Tim Barrier, David Marais and Ed Calvin. Stanley parents Jennie and Rob Dawe are hosting the event and donating a portion of the proceeds back to the Parent Association. I’d love to see you there!


Colorado Gives Day — Tuesday, December 4
Your gift to the Annual Fund goes farther on Colorado Gives Day, take advantage of matching funds by visiting Stanley’s Colorado Gives Day page.


Bricks and Brews Wednesday Night, December 5, 8 p.m.
Play some ball at the Stanley Gym, everyone is welcome! Questions? Please contact Dan Hyatt at hyatt.dan@gmail.com


Faculty & Staff Appreciation Holiday Cookie Party —


December 20
Take part in the second annual Stanley tradition honoring all of our faculty and staff during the holidays! Help us show appreciation for all they do to support our children.


Again this year the Stanley Parent Association is sponsoring a Holiday Cookie Party for faculty and staff, and we are inviting families to donate two dozen cookies or treats to deliver to school on Thursday, December 20. Baked goods can be dropped off in the Pub anytime between 7:30-11 a.m. that day. Additionally for your convenience, volunteers will be waiting in the Quebec K-1-2 drop-off line to receive donations prior to the start of the school day.


From 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. faculty and staff will be invited to the pub for a beautiful cookie buffet where they can fill a treat box to take home and enjoy with their families. Our goal is to send each person home with at least a dozen treats so we need lots of baking help!


Questions? Please contact Wendy Thorpe at thorpe.wendy@gmail.com


And finally, don’t forget to stop by the Stanley Store in the lobby on Friday 11/30, Friday 12/7, and in the gym during the holiday concert. We have fabulous winter merchandise perfect for everyone on your list. And, if you like what you see, please consider volunteering for the store in 2019. We have a terrific team in place, but we’re in need of new volunteers to transition the store into 2019. I’ll be sending out an official call for help in January. 


That’s all I have on my list. As we turn to the last page on the calendar, I’d like to personally thank all for all your contributions to the Stanley community.


Wishing you and yours a lovely holiday season and a very Happy New Year.
