Dear Stingray Parents and Guardians,

   This week all students attended an assembly by Safe Routes to School on Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety.   Please have a conversation with your child about what they learned and it’s a good opportunity to reinforce your own safety tips with them!  

    At our ELAC meeting next week we will be discussing internet safety and reviewing the digital citizenship curriculum used with each grade level.  If you are a family of a child that is currently an English Learner or has already reclassified to fluent english proficient, please join us at our ELAC meeting.

    A cause for celebration! The state testing results from grades 3,4,and 5 from May are now available publicly.  Stevenson students continue to do well with 89% of students meeting or exceeding standards in ELA and also 89% in math. This is a 3 point increase from 20-21 in ELA and a 1 point gain in Math.  We are working hard to support all students to maintain or increase their achievement while providing additional support to those who are not yet at grade level.


Warm Regards,

Terri Lambert

Principal, Stevenson Elementary

Better Together: November

This month’s theme for #BetterTogetherMVWSD is Empathy. Empathy is fundamental in promoting understanding, compassion, and unity among individuals and communities. It enables us to connect with others on a deeper level, to share their joys and sorrows, and to stand in their shoes, even when we may not fully comprehend their experiences. Recognizing United Against Hate Week is an important time of year as it underscores the need to combat discrimination, prejudice, and bigotry in all their forms. By participating in this initiative, we reaffirm our commitment to fostering a community where empathy is not just a concept but a guiding principle that helps us build a world where people of all backgrounds can coexist harmoniously, free from fear and hatred. Join us as we recognize United Against Hate Week with activities and programming taking place November 13-17th at all school sites. For more information about Better Together, visit mvwsd.org/BetterTogetherMVWSD.
