Welcome back, students and parents! Back to school night is on Wednesday, September 14th. While students are not encouraged to attend, at least one parent should come.

Teachers will be walking parents through each child’s class showing what will be learned this year.

Back to school night will start at 5:30 in the MPR with a 15 minute PTSA meeting. After, parents will follow their child’s schedule from 6:05 to about 7:50. There is one important exception to the schedule; PE class will be held in the MPR.

Hopefully, each child has given his or her parents the filled out schedule to follow. These were assigned in homeroom last week.

Welcome back to, and welcome to, Stacey Middle School.

Clegg, Schroeder, Eastwood, Willmore and Webber’s 5th or 6th Graders came to our wonderful campus to explore and learn about the many things it has to offer.

Before a tour, led by Leadership and Link Crew students, Mrs. DeBritton started the assembly with a big, warm welcome to our future slaves, I mean, students. She explained some rules and policies to the incoming children, spoke a bit about the school’s diversity, academics, and extracurriculars. More…

Cyberbullying Reply

Bullying has always been a serious issue.  Teasing, making  threatening comments towards someone, spreading rumors, and leaving people out on purpose are just some ways that people get bullied. Unfortunately, it is too difficult to monitor every bully and punish them for it. Now, because of modern, advanced technology, authorities now face another issue, cyberbullying. More…

Mr. Yohn’s History class did a project called Metaphorical America to review all of the history lessons learned this year. This project tested students’ ability to create a unique project concisely summarizing the major history events learned in the eighth-grade curriculum using symbolism.

Basically, students chose any picture to represent America and label 20 symbolisms–15 pre-picked by the teacher.  Among the features are the Westward Movement, Civil Rights, Constitution, Obama, Terrorism, and Debt. The student drew or glued images onto a piece of white paper with the symbols’ explanation on the back. Extra credit was given if the student drew it on a wide piece of construction paper, which could be found in Mr. Yohn’s room (G2B).

The project was due on Tuesday, May 31. It is 20 points for clear descriptions and 10 points for a visually pleasing and neat picture with the symbolic elements explained on the back, 30 points in total.

Mr. Dandridge is a teacher that many students describe as fun who always seems to capture the classes’ attention. This year he teaches seventh-grade math and science. Next year he will only teach seventh-grade science because Ms. Erdelyi, the other half of the seventh-grade science team, is retiring.

This year a selected group went to the museum and got to experience all the museum has to offer. More…

The Return of the History Walk Through Reply

Stacey has been celebrating  diverse cultures by hosting Multicultural Night annually. Long before the infamous festive day was created, its origin, known as the Renaissance Fair, existed.

The Renaissance Fair ,unfortunately, disappeared because of block schedule. It took time away from history to extend time spent in math, causing teachers to scramble for extra time for this project. The Renaissance Fair, now renamed History Walk Through, returns after seven years. More…

Unmissable Movies #2-What Saves the Kids? 2

Cool Cat Saves the Kids is all about teaching kids lessons about bullying and such, but really it’s a horrible attempt to be relevant. This “movie” came out on February 1st, 2015. It even gained 3.8/10 stars, but before had a 7.0/10 for “it’s so bad, it’s good” rating.  It is a kid’s safety and bullying movie, but it is horribly different from our generation. More…
