Celebrate the End of the Year at Senior Sunset!
Seniors, don’t forget to join us for the last Senior Fest event (not including the graduation ceremony, of course): Senior Sunset, brought to you by the Senior Class Board, Student Council, PPA and Student Activities Office!
The event will take place tomorrow from 6-9 p.m. and will include food trucks, tailgate games, entertainment from DJ Club, raffle prizes, fireworks, and a yearbook signing station. Come on out and share the memories as we watch the sunset together, closing out four years, just one last time.
Seniors can park in Lot B and walk to the Stadium. Masks, IDs, and completed health screeners are required. Seniors can still purchase a ticket at the door for $10 (cash only). See you there!

Aspiring Architects, Designers and Engineers Go to State
Last month, five members of the Architecture and Engineering Club participated in the Illinois Design Educators Association State Competition, in which students are tested on their abilities to complete different 3D Modeling and Architectural Modeling challenges.
Andrew Thalos competed in 3D Modeling and Assembly, and Neil Thakker and Gabriella Thalos competed in 3D CAD Modeling. Samuel Minin and Daniel Rybin competed in 3D Architectural Modeling with Samuel winning third in State, and Daniel winning the entire competition, taking first overall! Congrats, Pats!


iPad Guidance for Students
As the school year winds down, students, especially freshmen, may have questions about what to do with their iPads over the summer. The SMARTdesk is here to help with some key reminders:

  • You do not turn in your iPad at the end of each academic year. Your Stevenson iPad and all associated iPad equipment is your responsibility and in your care for the duration of summer months.
  • Before the next school year begins, complete a Tech Tune Up on the iPad. Detailed information will be emailed. If you want in person help with the process, that can be done at the SMARTdesk. Summer hours will be posted in Canvas.
  • If you do not want to be responsible for your iPad over the summer months, you can turn it into the SMARTdesk for safekeeping.

For more tips and guidance, please refer to the email sent by Ms. Hudson from the SMARTdesk.

Boys Tennis
The boys tennis team improved their overall record to 15-1 and remained undefeated in the NSC with a 7-0 victory over Mundelein. Not one singles player or doubles team dropped a set in the match. The Patriots will defend their North Suburban Conference Championship this Friday as the other seven conference schools travel to the SHS home courts at VHAC.

The Patriots bounced back from a close Monday loss to defeat the Bears from Lake Zurich, 10-4. Daniel Cabrales led the Patriots to victory on the mound. Cabrales went six and two-thirds innings, allowing four runs on eight hits, striking out two, and walking zero. Joey Little threw one-third of an inning in relief out of the bullpen. Stevenson totaled 14 hits in the game. Ryan Tumpowsky, Michael Belbot, Trent Henderson, JR Nelson, and Jordan Skolmar all had multiple hits. Tumpowsky went 3-for-4 at the plate to lead the offense.
