    Ronald McDonald House:  On Tuesday, May 23, students enjoyed a presentation and a magic show from the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  The Student Council was also able to present them with a check for $1,000 that they raised this year.


    Health and Fitness Walk:  On Tuesday, May 23, we had an end of the year health and fitness walk.  In keeping with our Student Council Hats for Hope campaign, we asked that each student walk in honor of a loved one with an illness (survivors, someone who has passed away or someone who is currently battling a disease).  Each student received a label that said, "I am walking in honor of _________."  Each student decorated the label and filled in the blank.  Officers from the Springdale Police Department were there to start the event with a brief motivational talk and to block road intersections.  In addition, the mayor and the Springdale Fire Department were there as well.


    Summer:  The staff at Springdale wishes all of our students and their families a safe and relaxing summer.  Keep reading at home this summer and we look forward to seeing all of you in August!


    Box Tops:  Our school can earn free money by cutting the labels off of products such as Kleenex, fruit snacks and many more products.  So, before you throw a box away, check for a Box Top for Education label and send it to school.


    Attendance:  Daily student attendance is important for learning. We ask for your help by scheduling all appointments for your child during after-school hours and non-attendance days. Please ensure your child does not miss valuable instruction by being tardy or leaving early. Students should not arrive prior to 9 AM since supervision is unavailable. Dismissal is 3:45 PM. All absences should be reported to Springdale Elementary, call 864-2700.


    Student Fees:  All fees must be paid in order for students to participate in field trips and after school activities.  Notices will be sent home with students that still owe fees.  Please call the office (864-2700) to set up a payment plan.


    Reminder to Preschool Parents:  Your child's medical and dental exams are on file in the School Health Office, and per state requirements they need to be updated yearly.  I have been sending notices home to many parents reminding them of this. Please stay on top of this, and if you know your child has an exam coming due soon, make the appointment with your child's doctor.  Please send these updated forms to school as soon as possible.  We don't want to have to exclude any of our students due to non-compliant records.


    Calling All Volunteers:  If you would like to spend some of your time working with students or helping with special events and programs (such as Garden Club, CoSi, Book Fair, etc.) please contact Mrs. Buell at wbuell@vikingmail.org.


    Volunteers/Visitors to the Building:  Please make sure that you bring an ID with you every time you visit the building or pick up a student.  Everyone that comes through the office will need to have their ID scanned and a picture taken.  Parents must have prior permission to visit classrooms.  Volunteers must have a background check.  Please contact our secretary to get a form and visit the Princeton Administrative Center to have this completed if you are interested in volunteering at school.


    Lost and Found:  Springdale Elementary has many coats, jackets and sweatshirts in their lost and found.  Students and parents are encouraged to stop by and check to see if any of these items belong to them.


    Upcoming Events:

    5/26 - Last Day of School

    STEWART ELEMENTARY - www.princetonschools.net/stewart

    Preschool students were excited to walk to Francis Recreacres on May 25, for our end of year celebration!  Students in Mrs. Ross & Mrs. Coggin's classes walked over to the park for a picnic.  We were excited to see families and celebrate a great year.


    Third Graders have been working on their Economics Unit and learning about buying and selling and producers and consumers.  We had our year end garage sale where they made a product to sell to their classmates.  They had to decide what to make, what supplies they needed and what price to sell the product for.  They all did a great job of making their products and buying and selling to each other. 


    4th Grade News:  Mr. Brooksbank, Mrs. Hiller, and Ms. Young want to thank the 4th graders for a great year.  Keep reading and practicing those math facts over the summer.  We hope you have a great summer!  


    Sailing Through the Summer activity sheet will be coming home with students.  The sheets include weekly activities for Reading, Writing, and Math for students to complete to bridge learning during the summer.  Students completing activities and returning assigned sheets can earn multiple rewards during the first 7 days of school.   


    Special thank you goes out to all the parents, staff and families that helped with the Spring Fling and our Field Day!  You did an amazing job and everyone had a great time!


    Note from the entire Stewart Staff:  We hope everyone has a great summer full of family fun and activities.  We would love for you to share your family photos with us on FaceBook!  You could even e-mail them to Mrs. Jones and she can help post them! tjones@vikingmail.org make sure to find some time to read a few good books and practice your math facts!


    Did You Know About the Viking School Based Health Centers?  This partnership between The HealthCare Connection, Inc. and the Princeton City School District provides a doctor's office visit within the school providing a great benefit to students.  For students without a primary healthcare provider, VSBHS staff may become that provider.  The Health Centers are located in the Viking Village and at Heritage Hill Elementary.  To schedule a visit, you can call Viking Village Location: 864-1545 or Heritage Hill: 864-4102.


    Important Reminder:  The only drop-off entrance for students being driven in a car is in the front drive off of Conrey Road.  The entrance on School Road is for buses only from 8:30-9:15 a.m.  Please do not enter where the buses are parked.  The safety of your child is our main concern.  The buses need a clear path free of students and cars in order to enter and exit safely.  All students eating breakfast may be dropped off beginning at 8:50 a.m.  The drop-off time for the rest of the students (those not eating at school) is 9:00 a.m.-9:10 a.m.  Students are expected in their room to start their day at 9:15 a.m.  Any child arriving after 9:15 a.m. is tardy and must report to the office.  We greatly appreciate your cooperation to ensure the safety of all at Stewart Elementary.


    Lost and Found:  Please remind your children to check our lost and found.  There are several jackets, sweaters and lunch boxes left from the cooler weather.  


    Kroger Rewards:  Make sure you are signed up to help our Stewart PTA- it’s the easiest way to raise money for our school & students!  You can re-enroll or sign up for the first time at https://www.kroger.com/.  Our organization number is: 80609.  Contact Wendy at hawkeye@fuse.net if you need instructions.

    Viking Coaches Receive Accolades

    The Princeton Athletic Department celebrated the accomplishments of two head coaches and their respective staffs in front of faculty on Tuesday, May 23.


    Coach Tamette Duckworth was named the men’s volleyball Greater Miami Conference Coach of the Year and the Ohio South Region Coach of the Year.  Coach Jill Phillips was named the Cincinnati Enquirer Southwest Ohio Division I Coach of the Year in women’s basketball.  Duckworth has led the men’s volleyball program to a school-best 17-5 regular season record, and current 18-win season after last night’s 3-2 victory over Mason in the first round of the state tournament. She has doubled the program’s wins in just three seasons.  Duckworth’s five conference wins and fourth place finish in league standings is also the best mark for Princeton. Her team’s success outside of league play was also noted by area coaches.  Princeton posted a 12-2 record against non-conference teams. The current senior class graduates with 45 wins and counting, another milestone for the men’s volleyball program.

    The Vikings defeated the Mason Comets 3-2 (26-24, 21-25, 13-25, 25-21, 16-14) on Monday, May 22, at Princeton High School to advance to the second round of the state tournament.  Princeton lost to Elder 3-0 on Thursday, May 25, at 7:30 p.m.  The Vikings finish the season with a 18-6 overall record.
