We have a very special enrichment opportunity in April 2019 for all students!
Circus Smirkus is doing a week-long residency at Stratton. Circus Smirkus residents will spend four class sessions with EVERY SINGLE CLASSROOM the week of April 1-5!
The week will kick off with mixed-up-mismatched clothing spirit day on Friday, March 29 and wraps up with an open house style showcase on Friday, April 5, 5:30 – 7:30 pm. We will also use our monthly PTO Coffee Meetup on Friday morning to show a student produced video of circus activities at Stratton.

Staying Sharp All Summer
We want all kids to enjoy summer, but we also want to keep up with our reading and math. Check out this great guide for summer reading! You can also visit the Let’s Read Stratton website for additional reading tools. Math information coming soon!
The PTO significantly enhances each Stratton student’s education with activities including field trips, special visitors and programs, annual events such as Science Night, classroom materials and equipment, grants for teachers, and books for the school library and classroom collections.
The Stratton PTO provides curriculum support with supportive materials (books, DVDs, software), resources for both teachers and students, such as curriculum supplies and materials to further enhance the educational experience.
Field Trips and Assemblies
Through parent support we are able to provide a large portion of the costs associated with the many field trips Stratton offers each class every year. This financial support also helps fund several assemblies (such as Museum of Science, Wingmasters) throughout the year for the the whole student body and individual grades.
With generous support for the Stratton PTO, we are able to provide classroom materials that further support the educational mission of the Stratton School. Past support has included books, TV’s, document cameras and microphones.
An important part of the PTO mission is supporting and enhancing the Stratton Community. The PTO provides many free or reduced cost family events throughout the year including Pumpkin Carving, Bingo Night, Movie Night, Spring Fling, Ice Cream Social, Science Night and many more.
