Welcome Back!
Welcome back to another fantastic year at Stratfield!
With less than 2 weeks before school starts on Thursday, August 31, we wanted to share some resources and reminders to help you and your child re-acclimate to the school year.

If you haven’t already gotten your school supplies, there is a list available by grade. Note that these are suggested, not mandatory. 

Official teacher assignments will likely be posted on Infinite Campus on Wednesday, August 23. If you gained access to teacher information prior to the official posting date, please confirm that your child’s teacher assignment did not change, as late enrollments might have affected this.

Once you get your child’s teacher assignment, please take a moment and update your personal information on our website and renew your PTA membership for the 2017-18 school year. You can find instructions here.

You can also find information about your bus number and pickup/drop off time on IC.

Don't forget to check out Friends of Stratfield School on Facebook. The group is open only to parents and guardians of current Stratfield students. Although it is parent-driven and not officially affiliated with either the school or the PTA, the goal of the group is to build school spirit and community by keeping members up-to-date about school, PTA, and neighborhood events. Please feel free to join, invite others, and post your questions, comments, and suggestions.

We have a fun-filled year planned with many favorite events returning, and several new and exciting events to look forward to. Do you have an idea for event at Stratfield, or want to get involved in the planning or execution of an event? Our VP of Volunteers, Liane May and Jessica Goldberg, are always on the lookout for helpers.

We can’t wait to start the year, see familiar faces, and meet new ones. Enjoy the last days of summer, and we’ll see you at school!


Sincerely,
Jillian Cano & Alexis MacIlvain
Stratfield PTA Co-Presidents, 2017-18
