Fall Athlete Picture (Retake) Day
Fall athletes who missed their scheduled picture date can come to Room 5044 on Saturday, Sept. 11 from 10:00 a.m. -10:30 a.m. for a retake. There will not be an additional charge for an individual photo.
If students want to be included in the team picture, which was already taken a couple weeks ago, Visual Image Photography has a $75 charge per person to rebuild the team photo. Both team and individual photos can be ordered online at VIP – How to Order.

Cross Country Athletes Gear Up for Competition
Tonight marks the first competition for the Stevenson boys and girls cross country programs at the Vernon Hills Athletic Complex. The boys race starts at 4:45 p.m. with Stevenson hosting Buffalo Grove, Dundee Crown, Fremd, Libertyville, and Wauconda. The girls race follows at 5:15 p.m. against Buffalo Grove, Dundee Crown, and Highland Park. Parking is limited, so spectators are encouraged to arrive early for the boys race and leave immediately after the race to free up parking spaces for the second race.
