Hello, Stacey Cougars!

It’s going to be a kind of slow week, but let’s just go over what will be going on.

Parent teacher conferences will be taking place after school all week. You’ll be released at 1:29 each day to give your teachers ample time to speak with you and your parents. This may be a good time to get on your teacher’s good side.

Don’t forget that Mrs. Doyle will be hosting Math Breakfast Club Tuesday and Thursday. If you have any questions about math, she’ll be there in the morning to help. More…

Get Dressed Up Stacey 3

Halloween is creeping closer and here at Stacey we will have a Halloween dress-up day on October 31st. Come to school dressed in a costume and enter the costume contest at first and second lunch for a chance to win a prize. There will be different categories, so there will be multiple winners.

There will be a category for funny costumes. This category would be for those that enjoy laughing and being funny and want others to laugh with them, or at them. For this, options a tube of toothpaste, or some other sort of a punny costume works.

The second category will be for scary costumes. Students that like to make other people jump or scare them should enter this contest because they may win. For instance, options could be a scary mask or a black shadowy costume. However, no violence, profanity, or weapons are allowed. More…

What are you going to be for Halloween? 11

As many students know, Halloween is rapidly approaching. But the big question is… what are you going to be for Halloween? Will you dress up as a scary demon or a cute bunny? At Stacey Middle School students have the privilege to dress up at school. However, there are some safety and dress code regulations. For instance, masks are not allowed as well as knives or guns. No inappropriate costumes either, the basic rules of dress code still apply. All rules aside, what costume will you be wearing this spooky night?

Ready, Set, Goal! 7

Bullying Needs To End . . . Now!! 8


Gavin Mercado 

I don’t know about you, but it seems there has been a lot of bullying recently. We interviewed various Stacey students and teachers to see what they think about bullying in the video above. Remember, if you are being bullied, please let Mrs. Mondt or Mrs. DeBritton know.

Stacey is a school or respect, right? Respect yourself, property, learning, and of course others! Everyone has a friend or a best friend, and we treat them with love and respect. Everyone should be treated with love and respect.

Many kids are put down by their peers because of their race, looks, voice, and even for being smart. Why can’t we just love everyone?  Many kids get called nerds or dweebs because of what they can’t do but also what they can. More…
