Take A Trip Around The World…Without Leaving Stevenson

It’s baaaaaack! That’s right, World’s Fair is back this year….and in person! On Saturday and Sunday, take a trip around the world without leaving the Wood Commons, the Forum at the Point and the Performing Arts Center.

Families, students and the general public are welcome to browse booth experiences in the Wood Commons and Forum (10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.) that will include food, activities and educational content on cultures from 30 different countries and cultural organizations. There will also be performances representing different countries at the PAC (3-5 p.m.). Performances are free, but will not be streamed.

Entry into the World’s Fair event, including the booth experiences and performances, is free. Tickets can be purchased at the Sportscenter and Forum entrances for $1 each that can be used for food and drinks at the booths, which will not be accepting cash.For more information, refer to the map of the booths and the schedule of performances.

So What Courses Do You Want To Take…Next Year?

Sure, the 2021-22 school year has just begun, but it’s never too early to start thinking about next year!

As a reminder, please mark your calendars and save the date for our kickoff event, “Let’s Talk About Your Future,” which is slated for tomorrow night. Families can engage in meaningful conversations about their students’ interests and goals for the future. This will be a “no homework” evening to allow time for these conversations.

As Hispanic Heritage Month Wraps Up, Students And Teachers Reflect On Resilience

October 15 marked the end of Hispanic Heritage Month. Chalkbeat spoke to Hispanic and Latino teachers and students around the nation about how they are celebrating their cultures and navigating this season of loss. Hispanic and Latino populations across the nation have made up a disproportionate number of deaths from COVID-19, and the pandemic exacerbated existing inequities for Hispanic and Latino students — widening education gaps and spurring drops in college enrollment.

Higher Student Morale Linked To In-Person Instruction, Survey Shows

Fifty-eight percent of teachers and district leaders still say student morale today is lower than it was pre-pandemic. While that might not sound positive, it is an improvement over the last time the EdWeek Research Center asked about morale in April, when 67 percent of district leaders and teachers perceived that student morale was worse than it was prior to the pandemic.
