Fall Play

WHS will be hosting the fall play The Bold, the Young, and the Murdered, in our cafetorium on Saturday, October 20 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $5.00 at the door. Please come see some of our fantastic young students perform in this comedic murder mystery. For more information, please view our introduction video.

Red Ribbon Week

At Stevens Intermediate School, we observe Red Ribbon Week by focusing on healthy choices. Each day, we will have a different theme to bring awareness to a new healthy habit. Please take time to talk with your children about good choices and healthy habits: eating well, exercising, drinking plenty of water, getting a good night’s sleep, always trying their best, and respecting themselves and others. We are looking forward to a great Red Ribbon Week, October 24–31. For detailed information on our themes for the week, please view our flyer

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Conference time is an important part of the school year. This is one-on-one time with the teacher to discuss grades, test scores, classroom procedures, homework, and classroom behavior.

Parent/teacher conferences are on Thursday, October 18 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Friday, October 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Students will leave Thursday, October 18 at 1:50 p.m. If you have not signed up for a conference time, please contact the school office at (815) 926.1689. We will not send mid-term reports home in the mail. Parents or guardians must attend a conference.

Change in the Weather

As fall arrives and winter soon follows, this is a good time to remind you of our school procedures for colder weather. Students will go outside unless the temperature is below fourteen degrees Fahrenheit or it is raining. Students cannot decide to stay inside; everyone goes out. 

Please make sure your child dresses appropriately! Students must wear snow pants and snow boots to play in the snow. Mrs. Dennis reminds the students of these requirements, and tries her best to warn students of upcoming temperature changes. However, Mrs. Dennis also encourages the students to watch the weather and prepare themselves!

Halloween Costumes

As the Halloween season approaches, please be aware that we will not allow gory, bloody, slender man, morph suits, scary clowns, or inappropriate costumes at school. We also will not tolerate costumes that include weapons, fake or especially real (for example: this includes pirate hooks). We will confiscate those items! 

Please ask if you are unsure of the appropriateness of the costume. Masks cannot be on the school bus to or from school. Students will come dressed in their costumes. We will participate in normal academic activities prior to the parties. Please make sure your child’s costume is not restrictive. Parents arriving to volunteer for the parties will not enter the building with a mask on. Thank you in advance. We can't wait to celebrate this fun holiday with you!
