Coffee with the Principal

The first “Coffee with the Principal” session took place on Thursday, November 30th from 9:30 am – 10:30 am at Stout Middle School’s Team Meeting Room in H-Hall. The meeting was supposed to discuss the  School Improvement Plan (SIP) and the Annual Title 1. However, Mr. Oke had only time to explain the School Improvement Plan (SIP) amid valuable input from the parents. Restorative Practices took the lion’s share of the conversation as bus behavior. Mr Lambdin, Mrs. Furkioti, and Mr. Sabra took part in the discussions. There will be another coffee morning in January (date and time to be announced later.)

Mr. Oke and Stout Middle School, would like to thank all who took time of their schedules to participate in the discussion, and would like to see them again, along with more parents.

The Mystery of the Whistling Building

In the fall of 2012, the government of New York City began receiving unusual complaints from the residents of a small strip of land in the borough of Staten Island. People who lived around a section of Father Capodanno Boulevard, in the South Beach neighborhood, claimed that, when the wind was up, they could hear a noise that sounded something like whistling. Where the sound came from was a big mystery. The noise had never been around before, but it had suddenly appeared and was often very loud. When the wind was blowing especially hard at night, some residents even had difficulty sleeping. Continue Reading…
