All Stanley students are learning about Digital Citizenship. We use lessons and discussion prompts from
Common Sense Media's K-12 Curriculum. CSM is also a great resource for families navigating our media-rich world.

Pencasts at Stanley
Several Stanley teachers are piloting the use of the Livescribe Echo Smartpen, a cool device that tracks audio as it writes. While we are still exploring the many ways this technology can be utilized, click HERE and HERE to see examples of how two of our Math teachers are using it.

Unstoppable Stanley!


One Book! One School!

One Book! One School!

Unstoppable by Tim Green

Tim Green came to Stanley!  This amazing individual spoke to all our students on Nov. 20, 2013.  As a boy, Tim had 2 dreams: to play in the NFL and to be published.  He achieved both of these dreams with amazing success.  Please visit Tim Green’s website for more information about Tim and his many accomplishments.  Tim’s website  has a For Kids tab that highlights his message: the importance of family, academics, sports, friends, giving, perseverance and success that is very inspirational. The book we read as a school community is called Unstoppable. It is a dramatic story that illustrates what it takes to be a winner, even when unforeseen events happen in one’s life.  Inspired by interviews with real cancer survivors and based on interviews with Jeffrey Keith, Tim’s fictional story promotes discussion and reflection on what it takes to be a true hero.  Thank you, Stanley families, for supporting the OBOS program!  


Technovation with Stanley

Tesla's Teen Tech: Girls Turn Mobile Developers Through Technovation

Character Counts!

Character Counts!

On Friday, October 4th,  all grade levels came together to discuss what character looks like at Stanley Middle School.  Using our six pillars of character -  trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship - students from the Leadership Class acted out middle school scenarios where kids were faced with making choices about how to act with character.  We reviewed important behavioral expectations as well as ways that students can find support when needed.

Have you registered for a SchoolLoop account?

Most returning 7th and 8th graders and their parents already have accounts and can simply log in using the same username and password as last year.

For students new to Stanley, creating an account is simple. Click on the "Register Now" button on the left side of this screen. You will be asked for some important information. Parents will go through a similar process and need the same basic information as students. Much of the information requested is obvious, but you are required to know the student's ID number. You can find this on the schedule that was distributed on the first day of school. It is the number listed as "Perm ID#."  It is common to mistake this number for the "Student #" - but use the "Perm ID#"!!!

We also recommend that students have and use their own email accounts when they set up their School Loop account. This is because many teachers use SchoolLoop to create and monitor online classroom discussions, a feature that is only open to students enrolled in their classes.

Once you have an account, we encourage you to browse around the features, see what's happening in your (or your child's) classrooms and get comfortable navigating around the various options available on your "Portal."

We look forward to a great year! Stay in the Loop!

Coming Soon... the Outdoor Learning Quad

We are pleased to announce that after several years of planning and preparation, our Stanley PTA has voted to move ahead with supporting Stanley’s Outdoor Learning Quad. This is an area in front of the Stanley Library that has been unused for many years, and will now become a place where teachers and students can work in a welcoming, outdoor environment. This project was developed through a collaboration of our Stanley staff, District leadership, student leadership team, and community partners.  We are in the early stages of a multi-stage process toward its completion.  For a visual of the OLQ plan, check HERE .
