Cinco De Mayo, meaning “Fifth of May,” is meant to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French Forces.
The history began when Mexico declared, in 1861, a moratorium on the repayment of foreign debts. This resulted in the English, Spanish, and French troops decided to attack. By April 1862, the English, as well as Spain, had retreated. On May 5th, General Ignacio Zaragoza defeated French troops at the Battle of Puebla, southeast of Mexico City, and about 1,000 French troops were killed. More…

Stacey is going back to the 80’s on the 21st of March.
Leadership chose this spirit day theme because March 21st is the 80th day of 2016.
Back in the 80’s, the trend was to wear neon colors. So on the 21st all students should wear bright and vibrant clothes.
When we asked Maddy Lane, 8th grader, what the first word that came to mind when she thought of the 80’s decade, she said, “I think of neon.”
Support Stacey Middle School by showing your spirit, and don’t forget the leg warmers.
