Dear Stevenson Community,
It was wonderful meeting so many of you during last week’s Math Night, Count Me In! What a great family event ~ seeing so many families engaged in math tasks and games with your children. We hope you enjoyed the hot chocolate and home activities.
Tomorrow evening’s PTA meeting will take place at Stevenson School at 7:00 pm in the staff lounge. The meeting was originally planned for the EGV Library.
We have successfully completed the first trimester of the 2014/15 school year. Your child will bring his/her report card home on Tuesday, Nov. 25. You will notice the report card is new this year and your child has been assessed on the Illinois State Standards. Some of the standards do not get assessed until later in the year and the report card will indicate that for you. Please celebrate your child’s accomplishments on his/her report card. Every child is learning a great deal and we know with your encouragement and support, your child’s learning will continue to soar.
Please make sure you send your child to school with coats, gloves or mittens, hats and boots(when it snows). We do try to get the children out every day for about 20 minutes. The only time we stay in is when the wind chill is below 1 degree or if the snow is very wet. Having proper cold weather gear will help your child enjoy the winter wonderland we often experience.
Sixth Grade Parents: Last Friday your students had the opportunity to meet with the assistant principal of the junior high they will attend next year. During that meeting the policies and procedures along with what a typical day is like at the junior high was reviewed. Soon your child will bring home a student request form that will allow them to select their electives for their 7th grade year. Parents will receive more information regarding this form at the 6th grade Parent Night which takes place on Dec. 3rd from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at your prospective junior high. We would like completed student request forms returned to the classroom teachers by Dec. 5th.
Have a wonderful week!
Maria Clifford and Christi Sosin
