Dear Stonewall Community:

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. The year is well underway and there are many positive accomplishments to celebrate. First, Stonewall is once again fully accredited based on state standards. Specifically, we gained 13 points on Mathematics assessments, decreased the chronic absenteeism rate by 9 points and improved the graduation rate by 2.5% to an 87.23% on-time graduation. These results show tremendous growth and progress on multiple performance indicators. There is still work to be done but we are definitely heading in the right direction.

We have approximately 2,591 students as of September 30, 2019. This an increase from last year and allows for a sound budget to meet our school needs. This summer we installed a new turf stadium field, received new tile/carpet in the library and are looking forward to a new track, concession stand and main office configuration in the spring/summer. Improvements are coming to Stonewall thanks to our Superintendent Dr. Walts and the PWCS School Board!

Stonewall fall sports are off to a good start! The Raiders Varsity Football team is 3-1 and played a competitive game against three time defending state champion Westfield. Field Hockey is a young and talented team with close contests against Patriot and OP (1-0 losses) and Volleyball is fielding a competitive team! Cross country and Cheerleading are off to a solid season with growing numbers of participants. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Homecoming October 25-26, the SALC is planning a fun week of activities.

Our musical groups are off to a fantastic start to the school year. The SJ Orchestra was invited to perform at the Superintendent's Breakfast in October. The SJ Choir had many students selected for All-County Choir and will perform on October 9th. Our Marching Band did well in 2A competition at Woodbridge Invitational last month. Well done Raiders!

Good things are happening athletically, academically and artistically at Stonewall! Looking forward to a great year Raiders!
