A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,

Safety is very important to the Wilmington School District. I encourage families to think about their weather preparedness during the month of March. In Illinois, March is Weather Preparedness Month. Discuss plans with your family for severe weather, fires, evacuations, etc. It is too late to plan when the emergency is upon us! Please visit the Illinois Emergency Management Agency website for more information.

State testing is coming in April. Students in 3rd through 5th grades take the IAR test. IAR stands for Illinois Assessment of Readiness. Students are tested in ELA and math. The tests are rigorous and made to challenge our students. Attendance is vital during our testing window of April 12 through April 23.

Based on excellent test scores, Stevens Intermediate has ranked in the top 10 percent of all Illinois schools for the last three years. We need to do our best to keep our exemplary rating. Please encourage your test taker to take their time, put forth their best effort, and check their answers. We reward the students with IAR cash for doing their best. Students can use IAR cash to purchase fun activities or treats.

Spring break begins on Monday, April 29. Students return to class on Tuesday, April 6. I hope you have a great spring break. Please be safe if you are traveling! Take time to rest and relax.

Advanced planning:

  • Last day of student attendance: Thursday, June 3 (tentative). Early dismissal at 1:50 p.m.
