On behalf of the entire Stevenson staff, we wish to thank the PTA for their generosity during Teacher Appreciation Week. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, fantastic drawings, and wonderful goodies throughout the week, including a special t-shirt. You made it a fun week for us – THANK YOU!
Come join us for a beautiful stroll through Busse Woods to support our Community Mental Health facility, Kenneth Young Center on Saturday, May 9, 2015. There is an 8:00AM check in time and a 9:00AM start time. This facility is right down the street from us and they provide so many services to children and families in our community. Children and families who are struggling can receive family and 1:1 counseling, social skills groups, parent coaches, mentoring for kids, psychiatric evaluations, shopping assistance, and much more. It is going to be a beautiful day to spend with your family and friends getting a little exercise while supporting a great cause. If you are interested in registering, click here!
During the last 26 days of school, students will be able to participate in a school-wide ABC Countdown. This is a fun way to celebrate the last few days we have in school. Each school day will have a different activity that corresponds with the letter of the day. Your child may need to wear or bring certain things on various days. Please use what you have at home…there is no need to buy anything new. Click here for the schedule!
