Project Community Care

Saturday, August 23 2014


Come help us beautify the school and landscape for our children's return! It's a fun event for the whole family and school community.


We have a limited number of gardening tools, so if you can bring your own that would be wonderful. Wheelbarrows and clippers are always in need.

New Family Orientation is Thursday, August 28 at 8AM.  This is intended for new families entering Stephenson to learn the details about our school schedule, procedures, and processes in preparation for the first day of school such as where to park, drop-off and pick-up, where to line up, how to set up lunch, what to do if your child will be absent or tardy, etc.  It is meant for adults and will take approximately an hour.  We hope to make the transition as smooth as possible.

First day for Grades 1-5 is Tuesday, September 2

First day for Kindergarten is Friday, September 5

See you soon :)
