Proud Home of the WILDCATS
Stevens Intermediate School

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 Students, Parents, and Families,

Happy April to everyone! Two months of school to go for the 2017-18 school year. These months will go by quickly for students and staff. Both April and May include fun events, testing, and field trips.  

PARCC testing starts again on April 3. I ask that your student do their best, put forth their best effort, and dedicate the necessary time to do their best. The PARCC test is rigorous! PARCC testing gives the staff important data that allows us to adjust curriculum, implement new curriculum, and address changes that need to take place. PARCC testing correlates to federal funding, and Wilmington CUSD 209U relies on that federal funding to operate.  

The third grade will hold their annual science fair on April 27. Projects are open to the public beginning at 2:00 p.m. All projects will close promptly at 2:30 p.m. Teachers will send information home with students for requirements and restrictions. We require government-issued photo ID to enter SIS and visit the science fair. No exceptions!

As we look to the end of the school year, we begin to plan our carnival/field day. This awesome day will be May 25 (tentatively). We need many, many volunteers. You can volunteer for the entire day or half the day. Please e-mail me if you are interested in volunteering. We need help!  

May dates:

  • National Book Week - May 1 
  • Teacher Appreciation Week - May 7 through May 11 
  • 5th Grade Band Concert - May 7 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Carnival/Field Day - May 25 (tentative)
  • Last day of student attendance - May 25 (tentative) with early dismissal at 1:50 p.m.
