Book Bingo, Friday 1/31 @ 6:30
Please join the Stoneleigh PTA for an evening of fun at our Family Book BINGO! Please bring a new or very gently used book (or two or three!) as entry to this event. Books should be appropriate for K-5 (no board books, please) All winners will get to pick out a book from the collection. Any books remaining at the end of the night will be donated.

We will have cookies and milk! This is not a drop-off event.

This year's International Festival will be on Saturday February 29th 
 
Mark your calendars and join us February 29th when we will leap into lots of different countries and learn about their cultures.  As in the past, there will be dance performances and demonstrations as well as Stoneleigh families sharing knowledge, food, and crafts from various regions around the globe. The PTA is looking for families who would like to participate by decorating and hosting a table that represents a culture or region. If your family would like to volunteer, please email Carolyn Barker-Villena.
 
Also, new this year, we will be doing an international-focused service project. During the international festival, Stoneleigh students and their families will have a chance to assemble school bags for children in countries like Uganda, Mali, Indonesia, and Peru. As part of these efforts, we will be asking for donations of school supplies, starting at bingo night. For more information on the school kits, take a look at this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwCPiQxcTL8 
 
Please keep an eye out for more information on this event and the service project soon! If you would like to volunteer to help, please contact Carolyn at the email above.

  • Decorate your assigned 6ft. table to celebrate the country you are representing.
  • Include a display/poster with information about your country and the food, craft, or items you are bringing.
  • If you are bringing food, please provide enough for 200 bite-sized portions, the PTA will provide sample cups, tasting spoons, and plastic gloves for serving. This is just a suggestion, so if you can’t provide 200 portions, just bring what you can.
  • If you are bringing a craft, please bring supplies to allow guests to try if possible.
