Great job Stoneleigh Aces Destination Imagination team on placing third place at the regional competition Saturday. This means they will advance to the State Competition in March 28!
We would like to thank you to ALL of the Volunteers for everything you all did to make the festival such a success! We so appreciate your willingness to dedicate your time to the festival. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Also, we got some nice coverage of the event on the Baltimore Sun thanks to our very own, SES parent, Courtney McGee. You can see it at the link below (you might need a subscription though): Baltimore Sun Write Up
We have had parents from two separate schools reach out to me to see how they can do something similar so clearly Stoneleigh is leading the way!
Thanks again for all the help! Notable mention to Carolyn Barker-Villena, Christine Campbell McGuire, and the volunteers that pulled together and did an absolutely outstanding job! Your effort was greatly appreciated.
This spring the PTA will be hosting the first-ever Stoneleigh Derby! This is an opportunity for all of the Stoneleigh Stallions to get their running shoes on for a one-mile fun run! Registration for runners will be online in a few weeks. But, in the meantime, we are looking for sponsors! Do you own a small business? Do you work for a company that might want to donate? If you or anybody you know is interested in being a sponsor of the event, please check out the details below. There are opportunities to sponsor at various levels.
Can’t donate but want to join The Derby Committee? Please email email@example.com
