Welcome back Stephenson Families! 

It was so exciting to see you all on the first day of school.  I am amazed each fall to see how much kids grow over the summer.

Please read through your First Day Packets thoroughly, mark key dates on the calendar, and return necessary forms.

This Week: 

Tuesday, Sept. 9 @ 8AM PTA Meeting in Staff Room

Wednesday, Sept. 10 @ 6:30PM Stephenson Family Engagement Meeting in Gym to discuss the role/purpose of PTA and Foundation, fill vacant parent volunteer positions, determine sustainable volunteerism practices, and an opportunity to share concerns/questions with me.  Childcare available and provided by PTA.
