Welcome to Stevens Intermediate School! Located in Wilmington, Illinois, we serve public school students in second through fifth grades in Wilmington School District 209-U. Here at SIS, we believe in open communication and cooperation between students, parents, staff, and community members. We are extremely proud of our students' success, and we will continue to lead them to greatness both in and out of the classroom.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please take some time to get to know us a little better, catch up on all the latest news, and get more connected to the teachers in the Stevens Intermediate School family. Go Wildcats!

A Message from Our Principal

Valentine’s Parties will be February 14 from 1:45 to 2:30 p.m. Let Mrs. Dennis know if your student needs valentine cards for their classmates.

Fourth grade will present their Patriotic Program to the community on February 16 in the WMS gym at 6:30 p.m.

Second trimester ends on Friday, February 17. Look for an e-mail on February 27 to let you know report cards are available online.

Stevens Intermediate, We-PTO, and the Wilmington Coalition have a great assembly planned for families on February 23. Tim Hanig-Pro Kids will be at SIS at 6:00 p.m. for an exciting evening! A concession stand will be open to purchase snacks. 

Safety and security of the students are very important to SIS. You must always have a photo ID with you when you enter the building. If you are dropping off an item, please leave it on the table in the foyer and let the office know it is there. When you buzz at the door to gain entry to SIS, do not be offended if we ask your reason for the visit. A visitor’s badge must be visible at all times. We do our best to keep students safe.

Welcome: We welcome new staff to our building. Welcome-Mrs. Orellano (Assistant Principal), Mrs. Billingsley (RTI/SHINE Coordinator), Mrs. Farmer (3rd grade), Mr. Rivera (4th grade), (5th grade).

Importance of Attendance: Studies show that absences can impact a student’s education. Missing school days can add up quickly! Missing two (2) days a month times nine (9) months means a child has missed 10% of the year and is considered truant! Studies show this pattern causes a student to likely fail reading and/or math. If a student is not sick, they should be at school!
