Dear Stevenson Families,

Please join us today, Thursday, May 30th for our International Potluck and Ice Cream Social starting at 5:30 pm.  It will be a great time to connect with others and celebrate the end of the year.

Celebrating Coco and Terri

At 6:00 pm on Thursday, May 30th Coco Ayala, our amazing front office secretary, will be honored as the classified (non-teaching staff) employee of the year at the board meeting which will be held in our MUR.  Coco is the heart of our front office and takes care of everyone that walks through the door, both tall and short.

Terri Hygate will also be honored on Thursday as she retires from the district. Terri has been a staple of the Stevenson community for 14 years and she will be missed.

End of the Year Absences

           Please make sure your children are at school for the remainder of the year.  If your child takes a trip and does not return before the end of the school year they are not eligible for an Independent Study Contract.  If students have poor attendance they risk losing their spot at Stevenson.

Warm Regards,

Rebecca Westover

Principal

On-Campus Before- and Afterschool  Programs Registering Students Now!


On-campus before- and afterschool care programs registering students now

We know that finding reliable, high-quality, affordable childcare is a challenge for many of our families and staff members. Increasing these offerings at our schools to meet demand has been a priority for MVWSD. On campus, our schools host several long-standing programs -- Beyond the Bell and the YMCA Silicon Valley Before and Aftercare --  in addition to a new one planned to open this fall, Right at School.

Right at School is a fee-based, nationally-recognized before- and afterschool program held every day that school is in session, from 6:30 AM until 6 PM, plus drop-in and school break care. It is planned for all MVWSD schools, including middle schools and the new Jose Antonio Vargas Elementary. Right at School presents experiential two-week science enrichment curriculum units, such as “Icky Experiments,” “Page to Stage,” and “Young Detectives.” The program incorporates physical movement, outdoor time and homework completion. It offers 10% sibling discount, 25% discount for free and reduced lunch families and flexible 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 day pricing options.

A parent information meeting for the new Right at School program has been scheduled at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7 in the Graham Middle School multi-use room (1175 Castro St.).  This meeting will help answer any questions you have about the program. The meeting is not mandatory. You may also go to www.rightatschool.com for registration and this webpage for information and fees.
