The new quarter is upon us which means that the new season of Prowlin’ Panthers After-School Clubs are here! Additions to the second quarter include Save the Bay, Creative Writing, Tech Savvy Kids Club, Volleyball, our annual co-ed Stone Basketball League and more! The calendar can be downloaded from the “Documents” tab.
The 2016 Indoor Futsal league has started and it’s been fast and furious. The co-ed soccer league consists of 12 teams this season with two divisions that play on Tuesday and Wednesday. Each team plays two games a day for four weeks. Afterwards, the teams will face off in a playoff where a champion will be crowned!
At the conclusion of our season, Stone’s all-star team will play the top students from Lanier Middle School on Friday, December 16, at 6:30pm at Stone.
As we prepare for the opening of the 2016-17 Prowlin’ Panthers After-School Program, we must inform everyone of the newest, hottest thing we’ve created that was created by none other than the students themselves! Over the years we’ve heard what you wanted, and that was “more!”.
More things that will keep you engaged, involved, and encouraged to stay after-school. So starting Monday, October 3, we introduce to you the BRAND NEW “Panther Points” incentive cards. We know what you’re wondering (8th graders). You’re saying, “But don’t we already have PAW Cards?”. Yes, you do. But PAW Cards are strictly given to students by teachers and staff before 2:15pm. Panther Points will be given to students who stay after school by after-school staff members and teachers who run a specific after-school club or activity. These point cards have three different values, 3-pointers, 2-pointers, and 1-point. Points are earned simply by students who exhibit one of the three contributors:
Inclusiveness (2 points) – Student willing to invite other students to participate in activities, games, and other social activities.
Being Considerate (1 point) – Student is respectful to staff, teachers, and other students that participate in the After-School Program.
The students can bank points for a variety of lit prizes, including hot dog or ice cream party with friends, hooded sweatshirts, and the hard to find “Straight Outta Stone” tees!
The official Activity Calendar of the new school year is upon us. Since the Program kicks off on Oct. 3, you’ll only have 3.5 weeks to enjoy the selections of the first quarter. Some of the highlights that will open up this year’s schedule are the following:
– “Social Club” Hour. All students that aren’t with a teacher from 2:20 – 3:20pm are to report to the Cafeteria for an hour of academic help, board games, and time to meet and interact with each other!
– Art Club. Mrs. Sheetz, our new Panther Art Teacher, will be offering students the ability to come in and paint, draw, sculpt and hone their artist skills.
– “Indoor Futsol League”. Our fast and furious indoor soccer season starts this fall. The league consists with co-ed teams that have a roster max of 6 players and play weekly games in our gym. The season consists of a playoff and championship game.
The Activity Calendar can be downloaded in .PDF form in our “Documents” tab.
