Supporting Students During Remote Learning+
Yesterday, an email was sent to Patriot families outlining support offered to students through the Stevenson Student Services Division and Student Learning Programs Division. In addition, Student Check-In Days were introduced. These will be held on Oct. 28, Nov. 11 and Dec. 2 to provide an in-school-day opportunity for teachers to conference with students about their current progress, identify areas of growth, offer opportunities for students to demonstrate learning, and make sure students are aware of supports available to help them.
All classes on Wednesday, Oct. 28, will be asynchronous, which means our teachers will provide assignments and activities for students to complete independently.
Student Services Destress Event: Fall into BINGO
Members of Stevenson Student Services want to encourage students to take a break and destress with some fall fun. They have created a Fall Destress Bingo Card filled with fall activities ranging from carving a pumpkin to baking a cake. Students who send in their card with a photo of at least one of the activities they completed between now and Nov. 20 will be entered to win an Amazon gift card and submissions may be shared on social media.
Cap and Gown Ordering Information
A webinar will be held during all lunch periods on Friday for students to learn about how to order cap and gowns and graduation items such as announcements and accessories. Additional information can be found online for Cap and Gown Packages and Cap and Gown Only orders which can be placed between Oct. 30 – Nov. 20.
