Sturgis Soundings Magazine Needs YOU!

Sturgis Soundings Magazine
Exploring the interests and enthusiasms of Sturgis Charter Public School

A new WordPress publication for Sturgis is in the works. Sturgis Soundings Magazine will be a compilation of news, interviews, creative arts, research and discovery that will be published three times yearly. We hope to launch the first issue the week before Thanksgiving.
Here is where you come in. Each issue will include an Alumni News column - so we need your news! Please take a few minutes to send us an update on what you been up to since graduation including:
year of graduation
college/work news
personal interests
any other news you would like to share
You don't have to write an Extended Essay for this! A couple of sentences will do. We hope Sturgis Soundings Magazine will provide a way for all members of the Sturgis community to stay connected and learn about what is happening at Sturgis and beyond.

One regular column in the magazine will be a takeoff on the original Sturgis Soundings collection of book reviews written by Sturgis faculty and students. In addition to books, each Sturgis Soundings column will feature a topic such as film, music, works of art, people and travel experiences. We will invite you to select an example of the topic and describe how it influenced you or changed your perspective. Students and alumni will also be invited to participate. The more responses the merrier!

The first Sturgis Soundings column will feature Travel Tales.
Briefly describe (1 - 2 paragraphs) your most memorable travel moment
and how it influenced you or changed your perspective.

Send your Travel Tale by Monday, November 7 to:

soundings@sturgischarterschool.org


Also, we have discovered our alumni contact information is sadly out of date. I hope you can help us improve the situation by passing this email on to all Sturgis alumni in your contact list. If you have questions, contact Marion Weeks.

Thanks for your help with this project. We look forward to hearing from you!

Sad News for the Sturgis Community - 02/01/10

This morning the Sturgis community suffered a tremendous loss. Gretchen Buntschuh, grant-writer and extended essay advisor, passed away at home after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer. Many of us knew her as an English teacher, English department head, and Assistant Principal in the days before the IB. She also founded and worked extensively on literary projects in recent years including the Sturgis Soundings, a literary review produced with librarian Marion Weeks, and The Sturgian, a literary journal of student creative writing and art work produced with English teacher and alumna Alicia Fenney. Gretchen's contributions are far and wide. You cannot throw a stone at Sturgis without it touching someone who is affected by Gretchen's contributions at Sturgis, either directly or indirectly. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gretchen’s family during this difficult time.

See the latest edition of the Sturgis Soundings "All Time Favorite Books" with a special tribute to and mini-biography of Gretchen: http://www.sturgischarterschool.org/library/documents/Soundings.pdf

Search for Class Chairs

If anyone is interested in becoming a class representative for their graduation year, please let us know! Please email Anna Botsford (aheick@sturgischarterschool.org) or Alicia Fenney (afenney@sturgischarterschool.org). This would not be a huge commitment but would entail a bit of publicity work in getting the word out to graduates about reunions and alumni events. We need YOU in order to keep an alumni committee going. We are starting traditions now and building towards reunions! Give it some thought and let us know!


Memorial Services for Class of 2007 Alum Corey Dooling

There will be a wake on Friday, April 3 from 5-8 pm @John Lawrence Funeral Home in Marstons Mills.

The Funeral service will be Saturday, April 4 11am @ St. Mary's on 6A in West Barnstable.

Any offerings of memories are welcome to be brought to Sturgis in room 207A


Welcome!

We're so thrilled to have the SAA website up and running after months of preparation. The website is a work in progress and suggestions are always encouraged. If there's one thing I think we've all learned from being at Sturgis, it's that if you want something done, you've got to start it yourself!

What makes our association so special is our youth and flexibility. Where other alumni associations might have boring reunions, we can be creative and have fun. If you want a dance instead of cocktail hour or sit down dinner for your 5-year reunion, become or nominate a chair! If you've got a great blog thread you'd love to share, pass it on and we'll get you set up! We're here to make this website and association work for you and we look forward to many more Sturgis memories.

Best,
Alicia Fenney, class of 2003
Anna Heick-Botsford, class of 2002
Julia Woiszwillow, class of 2003
