A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope 2019 is happy, healthy, and safe for all families.

As school returns on Tuesday, January 8, we focus (even more) on preparing our students for the next grade level. Progress reports for the second trimester will go home electronically on January 25. If your student(s) is struggling, I urge you to make a face-to-face appointment with the classroom teacher and develop an action plan to help.

Please remember some of our rules/regulations/laws affecting schools and students:

  • No cell phone use on school property
  • Student cell phones/smart watches need to be turned off and in their backpacks
  • No tobacco use on school property; this does include e-cigarettes
  • Student attendance is vitally important to student success
  • Students must be fever free and vomiting free (without medication) for 24 hours before returning to school
  • Pokémon cards are not to be visible at school
  • No weapons (of any kind), drawing pictures of weapons, or talk of weapons is allowed at school
  • Students go out for recess unless it is raining; dress appropriately, no exceptions

Please visit the Stevens Intermediate School Facebook page; you will find all types of information.   

Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) testing is coming soon. IAR is the state of Illinois standardized test. To help your student (grades 3–5) prepare for testing, have the student read aloud to you and then ask comprehension questions about what they read and practice basic math facts and math concepts.
