The Latest School News!


The Stephenson Season of Sharing is here! This year we have two events in the Season of Sharing, a coat (and gloves, hat, socks, underwear) drive and the gift tags. If you would like to help, it's super easy....here's how...


  • Bring in new socks and underwear and/or new or gently used coats, hats, and gloves. There are donation boxes in the main hallway by the display case.  You can drop these items off in the designated boxes. All donations will go to the PTA Clothes Closet to help families across PPS

  • Pick up a snowman tag in the main office window. On each tag is a gift item (or gift card) for five of our Stephenson families. You can purchase the item and return the gift, wrapped with the tag attached, to the main office. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Miss Heather in the main office.


I know that our Stephenson community will come together once again to support our own families as well as the PTA Clothes Closet.
