Welcome to Stanley Middle School

Welcome Stanley students, parents and guardians, administration, and staff!  Stay connected with our Wildcat community through this site! 


 WE NEED YOUR INPUT: Stanley Parent Community Pulse Check

It's important to us that we check in with our parent community about the best ways to connect and engage with fellow parents and caregivers! From social events to Wildcat Chats and other learning opportunities, we want to know what's on your mind and how we can best build and support community engagement efforts for this school year and beyond. Please take two minutes to fill out this survey. Thank you!


STUDENT ART DISPLAY CASE

Is your student an artist, photographer, dancer or actor?  If so, we are looking for submissions for the Stanley Arts Appreciation Display Case just next to the front office!

 

If interested, please submit a few photographs of your child performing, their artwork (any medium), or photography that they have completed recently.  Please remember to include your student's full name and a brief description of the performance or art piece. All submissions or questions should be sent to Jennifer Flowers at jenyangflowers@gmail.com.


 

 

The Lafayette Reservoir Run is Sunday, October 23rd!

Last year, a record $42,569 was earned for Lafayette School District schools. Over $7,000 of that went directly to Stanley Middle School PTA! We expect to beat that number this year and you can help STANley STANd out by getting your friends and family together and signing up TODAY. You can choose between the chip-timed 10K or 5K or the 2 mile run/walk or virtual race. Make sure to register under Stanley Middle School when prompted. Don’t feel like running, but still want to be a part of the fun? You can sponsor a teacher to run or volunteer at the Res Run on behalf of Stanley. Please email Stephanie Hamilton at stephchav@gmail.com or Katie Blair at katieblair23@gmail.com for more information.

 ODYSSEY OF THE MIND

Do you love drama, engineering, art, problem solving and lots and lots of duct tape? Then Odyssey of the Mind may be for you. Odyssey of the Mind is a team-based creative problem solving competition. Kids compete in teams of 5-7 kids in a tournament around the end of February. They perform their solution as an 8 min skit, as well as participate in a Spontaneous Problem, which they see for the first time as part of the event. OM teaches collaboration, design thinking, creativity and thinking on your feet. It is great for kids that like to build, write, paint, tinker, solve problems and perform.

 

Odyssey of the Mind teams are coached by parent volunteers. Parents don’t need any special skills to coach a team. Please consider being a coach. For more information, go here or email Kathi Dente -  kathi@mccrackendesign.com
