A new episode of Stanbridge Student News has been posted to our website's Parent Portal—Stanbridge families can access by using their portal password. The latest episode gives viewers an exclusive look behind the scenes of our Drama Club's recent production of The Airship Chronicles, an original play produced and directed by Stanbridge Academy's Music & Drama teacher Dave Hopper. Also highlighted: A sneak preview of this spring's Prom, the theme of which is 1980s video games (awesome!). Get all the details on this year's big night, plus a special countdown of the Top Five Bestselling Video Games of the 1980s (Hint: Sibling Italian plumbers are involved). Also, a recap of the recent High School Community Service Day in Half Moon Bay, and a summary of upcoming school events. Power-up your weekend with the latest from Stanbridge Academy's most trusted news source!
Today is Earth Day and we hope you are outside celebrating nature on this beautiful Monday in the Bay Area. Today's observance gives us a chance to cheer the efforts of our Stanbridge students—particularly those involved with last year's student government. Over the course of last school year, student government sponsored a number of bake sales which helped raise funds for an eco-friendly water fountain/water bottle filling station (pictured). Installed last spring, the station has helped eliminate waste from more than 13,600 disposable plastic bottles so far! You can help save even more by using your reusable S'well Stanbridge Academy water bottle to fill up at our Hayden Hall water station. Didn't get your bottle yet? No problem! Annual Fund donors can pick up their bottle at the main office any time. And if you haven't made your Annual Fund donation yet this year, click here to give online or stop by the office to drop off a check and pick up your bottle all at once!
Season's Greetings and Holiday Thank Yous to all of the Stanbridge families and staff members who have donated gifts to this year's Family Giving Tree donation drive. Dozens of holiday wishes will be fulfilled for families in need throughout the Bay Area thanks to your generosity. If you still would like to participate, there are still a few Wish List tags hanging on the tree in Hayden Hall—perhaps you can be the Secret Santa who gives someone a reason to smile this season. Tuesday is the final day of our donation drive before the junior high students and teachers load up the Stanbridge sleigh and head to the FGT Warehouse this Thursday, where they will personally deliver all of the collected items.
