Winter Guard Rolls To A First Place; World Championships Next Month!

Over the weekend, the varsity Winter Guard Team competed at the Midwest Colorguard Circut competition held at Hersey High School in Arlington Heights and placed first in Scholastic Level A.

The previous weekend, Stevenson competed at the Illinois Regional against teams from across the Midwest and finished third, which factors positively into its seeding score for the World Championships in early April!

Coming up this weekend, the Winter Guard will compete in the Minooka Color Guard and Percussion-Winds Contest at Minooka High School, where nearly 40 different groups from high schools in the area will be participating.

Stevenson Pays Tribute To Youth Art Month

The month of March has been designated Youth Art Month by the Council for Art Education, National Dance Education Association, National Association for Music Education, and Educational Theatre Association.

As a tribute to Youth Art Month, the Stevenson Fine Arts Division would like to honor the contribution that Art, Dance, Music, and Theater make to our students and school.

To join in commemorating Youth Art Month, the Fine Arts Division is asking that students, faculty and staff please consider attending Fine Arts Events this month while also acknowledging the creative students and teachers who make a difference in our community. There will be a couple more pop-up performances around campus this month in honor of Youth Art Month:

  • Tomorrow, 5th Period: Students, staff, and faculty are invited to Dance Studio 2010 to preview the Dance 4 students’ “Day of Dance” performance
  • Thursday, Before School: There will be an Open Piano Jam outside the Black Box Theatre.

Following the Fine Arts Division on Instagram is also a great way to stay up on all the latest Fine Arts news at Stevenson.
