Anti-Racism And Inclusivity Week Slated For Next Week
Get ready for some fun and thought-provoking activities next week!
Stevenson’s second annual Anti-Racism and Inclusivity Week, running from April 4 to 8, will be focused on the theme of “Allyship,” which is integral to our community’s collective commitment to equity, access and inclusivity. To be an ally requires that a person not simply notice an injustice, but also take action by bringing attention to the injustice and requesting that it be corrected.
FIRE, in collaboration with many other equity-minded clubs, will be hosting a series of events during the week focused on spreading the message of the importance of “Allyship” within our school community. Activities include guest speakers, a film screening and discussion, student advocacy training and more!
Please reach out to Dr. LeViis Haney with any questions!

Check Out Tiny Model Homes In Lower ILC
They are small models of tiny homes. But students in Stevenson’s Advanced Architehctural Design classes put big effort into their creations, which are on display now for public viewing.
The architecture students recently completed a project in which they were tasked with designing models of mobile, stationary or floating tiny homes of just 400 square feet or less. They developed a 3-dimensional model on Sketchup software. Then, they developed their laser cut files using Autodesk AutoCAD software.
The models are on display in the lower Information Learning Center in the West Building until April 14. Check them out!
For more information about this project or the class, please feel free to reach out to Kaitlin Rossi at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A boost in funds and flexibility in how food is prepared and packaged was a lifeline for kids coping with hunger. But these measures, passed in response to COVID-19, expire in June, with no extension.
