Golden Sneaker Contest

Lace up those shoes, dust off those bikes, or get ready to share your ride! The Safe Routes to Schools Golden Sneaker Contest is coming to your school.

From February 24 to March 6, students will work together to reduce car trips by using active and shared transportation options such as:


Skateboarding, using a scooter, or any other human-powered wheels
Riding the school bus
Using public transit such as AC Transit or BART
Carpooling with other families

The Golden Sneaker Contest offers a chance for every student to participate. If you live too far from school to walk or roll, you can:

Park a few blocks away and walk
Meet up with friends who live close to school and walk or roll as a group
Start a carpool 
Take the school bus or public transit to school

Students will track how they get to school each day. The classroom with the highest percentage of these healthy travel choices will win a Golden Sneaker Trophy and golden shoelaces.

Learn how to get involved!!

In the upcoming weeks, we'll be featuring different ways that you can get involved in the Stanton Community and SPA. We'll be featuring the different SPA committees and what they do. First up is the Walk-a-thon committee. Walk-a-thon is our biggest fundraiser, and is a lot of fun for our kids. About 60 volunteers work on Walk-a-thon and organize everything from donations to marketing to food and the cake walk.

Important Message About Parking

Dear Stanton Families, 
We recognize shortage of parking for families as children are dropped off and picked up. In order to be good neighbors, we ask that you consider the impact on them as you park. Please do not block driveways at anytime, even if you are in the car waiting to pick your child up. Thank you for your continued cooperation and attention to this matter.
In collaboration- Mrs. Robin Ormsby, Stanton Principal
Support Measure I 

Vote YES this March to keep high quality teachers in the classroom and protect our outstanding local Castro Valley schools! 

Every penny from the parcel tax measure will be locally-controlled and directly support Castro Valley schools. Our outstanding schools make Castro Valley a wonderful place to live and voting YES on this measure keeps our property values strong.
