A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,

As principal of Stevens Intermediate School (SIS), it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for the 2019–2020 school year. We are very excited to have students filling our school with energy and enthusiasm on each school day. Our goal at SIS is to make each student feel welcome, supported, safe, and connected to the SIS family.  

We recognize the importance of a student’s family in their education. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time (7:45–7:57 a.m.), ready for the day’s learning experience.
  • Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.
  • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.
  • Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.
  • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and have a productive life.
  • Respects students and staff of SIS through actions and words.
