A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,

Happy new year! I hope 2020 is happy, healthy, and safe for all families. 

As school returns on Tuesday, January 7, we focus (even more) on preparing our students for the next grade level. We will send home report cards for the 2nd trimester electronically on February 28. 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.    

Remember some rules/regulations/laws affecting schools and students:

  • No cell phone use on school property.
  • Students should turn off cell phones/smart watches and put them 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.
  • Pokemon cards are not to be at school.
  • We do not allow weapons of any kind, drawing pictures of weapons, or talk of weapons 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.

IAR (Illinois Assessment of Readiness) testing is coming soon. IAR is the state of Illinois standardized test.
