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

Dear Parents,

Welcome spring! Do not forget to “spring forward” and turn your clocks ahead one hour on March 8.

March is Weather Preparedness Month. Please make sure your family has supplies and a plan for severe weather. Visit Illinois Emergency Management Agency's website for information to help prepare. SIS will practice our second tornado drill on March 3. 

Spring picture day will be March 13. Parents will receive an envelope with two proof pictures and an order form. You will need to choose the proof you like, fill out the order form, and return it to the school with the payment enclosed. The delivery of pictures will be to the school. 

Spring break begins Monday, March 23 and students return to school on Monday, March 30. Enjoy your time with the students. If you travel, be safe!

Registration opens April 1 for the 2020–2021 school year. Due to a change in our student management system, we will do registration by paper and pencil (packets) this year. We encourage parents to complete registration by May 1. Fees are not due until August. We will not place students in a class and on a class list until the registration packet is complete. We will post class lists for registered students on June 30. 

State testing (Illinois Assessment of Readiness-IAR) begins April 1 for students in grades three through five. Testing and test results are very important to your child and Stevens Intermediate. Please encourage your child to do their best. Attendance is highly encouraged for the weeks of April 1 through April 9. Students can earn IAR cash to spend for rewards once testing is complete!

Mark your calendar: May 26 is Field/Carnival Day. We will need many, many volunteers to support games and activities.
