Foundation Sponsoring Children’s Play Sunday

The Stevenson Foundation is sponsoring its children’s theater presentation, “Rapunzel,” at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday in the West Auditorium. The play, which gives a new twist to an old story, is recommended for children ages 3-8. Tickets are $7, and can be purchased online through Thursday. Tickets also will be sold at the door.

Late Arrival on Thursday: What is Your Student Doing?

Stevenson will follow a late-arrival schedule on Thursday. Classes will begin at 10:30 a.m. The Stand Strong Coalition reminds parents that late-start days can provide students with unmonitored time prior to school, and can lead to high-risk behavior for some, such as drinking and smoking marijuana. The coalition recommends that parents ask their students these four questions: Where will you be? Who will you be with? What will you be doing? and What time will you be leaving home?
