Extra, extra, read all about it! Every day our students accomplish great things, and we want to help keep you involved. We encourage you to visit our News page often to stay informed of all the latest events and stories.

Dress for the Weather

Please note that SIS students will go outside for recess unless it is raining or the temperature is below 15 degrees Fahrenheit. We require all students go out for recess. The only exception is a doctor’s note to stay inside. Students should have winter coats, hats, and gloves/mittens. Please be sure to prepare your students! Mrs. Dennis makes this announcement every morning.

Second Grade Christmas Program

Our second graders recently performed Forty Winks as their Christmas program. The show was wonderful, and it really got us all into the holiday spirit!

Every Student Succeeds Act (E.S.S.A.)

The state of Illinois gives every school a rating using an E.S.S.A. formula. There are four ratings: exemplary, commendable, under-performing, and lowest -performing. They base the ratings on state assessment scores and attendance. Stevens was proud to receive an exemplary rating this year!

To keep this rating, students need to show growth from year to year on state assessments, the absent percentage needs to drop, and Stevens needs to stay above the state benchmark on testing. Please help us keep the exemplary rating by listening to your students read each night, and then asking questions about what they read. Please also practice math facts and review basic math skills. Thank you!

Preparing for Winter Weather

As we have now arrived in the colder months of the year, we want to remind our students and their families of the importance of having the proper clothing to go outdoors during recess. Please know, based on our student handbook, that we expect all students to go outside for recess as long as the temperature, including wind chill, is 15 degrees or above. We expect students to wear coats, stocking caps or hats, and gloves so they are still comfortable in the colder temperatures. If not dressed properly, we will give students a coat to borrow. We will allow students to play in the snow if they bring snow pants and boots. Thank you for sending your children to school prepared.
