On Sept. 5 the weather provided a wonderful backdrop as students and parents gathered at the Stoughton School for their annual back-to-school barbecue. The evening was well attended, combining the back-to-school celebration and an open house, showcasing the Stoughton Playschool, Stoughton Library, Early Learning and Care, guitar and fiddle teachers Donna and Morgan Turk, Stoughton Early Learning Facility (SELF), Girl Guides, Horse Club, Crossroads Multiple 4-H Club, Stoughton Swimming Pool and the School Community Council.
The SCC consists of staff and student representation, community members, and parents, meeting about once a month throughout the school year to identify needs within the school and ways to meet those needs. They fundraise to add to the school, acknowledging and encouraging their students and staff along the way.
