Hello! The name of our school is Independence Elementary. Our school colors are red, white and blue.
Our Flat Stanley goes to our school. He is in Third Grade. Flat
Mrs. Conklin's third grade class is excited to share Flat Stanley with you. We hope you enjoy him and show him a good time. The name of our school is Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School. We are a private school of about 250. We only have one grade of each, Pre-K through 12th grade. We have 20 students in our class, 9 girls and 11 boys. We are very busy learning lots of things. In math we are beginning to learn our multiplication facts. We are also making board games about the book Caleb's Story. Stanley is coming to you from Joplin, Missouri. Joplin is a city of about 47, 000. We are located in the southwest corner of Missouri. One of Joplin's newest additions is a city trolley. We are hopeful to give at least one of our Stanley visitors a ride on this. We do not have any large bodies of water in Joplin, but we have a couple of lakes about an hour away. We are not too far away from Branson and the famous Silver Dollar City.
Now, we must tell you about Stanley. He was born at Freeman Hospital. He is of course in the third grade. His favorite subject is Science. Right now he is learning about pollination and bugs. He loves spaghetti. He is also very good at sports. He wants to be a goalie for our high school soccer team, but they think he is just a little bit Flat! They did agree to let him be a Little Cavalier Critter and help cheer for the team. Some of his third grade friends are Critters with him. Stanley thinks he is allergic to medicine, but we think maybe he just doesn't really like it. Since Stanley spends a lot of time in the third grade room with many bears, he has become quite fond of them, but he also has this idea in his head that he'd like to start a shell collection. He is hopeful that he might get some along his journey. So we decided he has two things to collect, shells and bears. Stanley also loves to read too, so read him many books and send him home soon.
Stanley enjoys science, reading, gym and recess here at school. He plays hockey and has a pet praying mantis that we keep here in the classroom. Playing in the snow is one of Stanley’s favorite activities. He skis, snowboards and rides a snowmobile. Stanley is a good student and a good friend to his classmates and we’ll miss him while he’s gone.
Flat ‘Clarence’ loves to do many things. He loves playing baseball and soccer in the warmer weather. He also rides his bike on the many bike paths we have in our town. In the winter he enjoys sledding, skiing and building snowmen. His favorite food is…chicken wings! It doesn’t matter if they are BBQ, mild or hot! He is also a huge sports fan…especially the Buffalo Sabres(hockey) and the Buffalo Bills(football). In school, Clarence loves science and reading. He also enjoys using the computers. Flat Clarence is excited to see new schools and new areas of our country. He is looking forward to meeting new friends!
The Flat Stanley project is being done as a Tech Class project with three 2nd grade classes at

We are thrilled to have our new student, Flat Stanley, visiting with you! At our school, he especially likes going to one of his five special classes each day.

Hello! We are a group of 3rd graders from Lexington, Kentucky. Our school is called Athens-Chilesburg Elementary. We are so excited to introduce you to our classroom friend, Flat Stanley.
Flat Stanley was born in Lexington, Kentucky. He is now a 3rd grader at Athens-Chilesburg Elementary School (or ACE for short). His favorite subject in school is math because he loves numbers. He especially loves PE class because he gets to run around and play fun activities. Flat Stanley’s hobbies are riding his bike and collecting pins. (He is currently wearing a UK pin.) His favorite food is pizza with lots of cheese. Be careful because Flat Stanley is allergic to bananas and broccoli! When it’s rainy or cold outside, he likes to read books and drink hot chocolate. Flat Stanley also likes being outdoors. His favorite thing to do outside is ride his bike. Flat Stanley loves going to school at ACE because his teacher is the best and he gets to see all of his friends everyday.
Lexington is Flat Stanley’s hometown. It is a great city to live in. It is located in the Appalachian Mountains and the “Bluegrass State.” Lexington has rivers, lakes, hills, and valleys. The weather in Lexington is different in each season. In the spring it is rainy and summers in Lexington are very hot and humid. It is breezy and chilly in the fall, but in the winter it can get very cold. Flat Stanley’s favorite season is fall because he loves when the leaves on the trees change to bright, warm colors.
Flat Stanley’s favorite sports team is the Kentucky Wildcats. He loves to go to Rupp Arena and watch the UK basketball team. And on Saturdays in the fall, he can be found tailgating in front of Commonwealth Stadium before UK football games. Flat Stanley also enjoys going to Keenland in the spring to watch the Thoroughbred horses race.
