Thank Your Teachers TODAY…On VIDEO!

For the last week, in preparation for Teacher Appreciation Week May 2 through May 6, we have been asking you to share with us written messages of gratitude for your teachers. Thank you so much for your submissions!

Now, we’re moving on to the VIDEO PORTION of our tribute to our teachers.

Starting today, we will spend the next two days video-taping your messages of gratitude at select locations around campus. If you’d like to give a short video “shout out” to your teachers, stop by at any time during the lunch hours.

Today: Skybridge At The Point (The Bridge/Walkway that is above the Point Entrance in the Forum)

Tomorrow: Glass Commons/Patio Entrance

Let’s Go Green! It’s Earth Week, Day 2!

Earth Week is an opportunity to celebrate our planet and increase awareness of what we can do individually and collectively to care for it. Throughout Stevenson’s Earth Week this week, there will be various service and educational opportunities that align with the Earth Day 2022 organization’s sustainability campaigns.

The events at Stevenson will be hosted by the Green Team and include a vegan bake sale in the Wood Commons today after school. Tomorrow there is a composting activity during the lunch hours and the Habitat Restoration Service Project after school.

Other activities this week include up-cycling, chalk art, tree planting and a plastic cutlery reduction project. And there will also be expanded vegan and vegetarian options all week at Jazzman’s.

As is the case with most special weeks at Stevenson, there are theme days during Earth Week, too. Today is “Tree-“ats Tuesday, tomorrow is Waste Wednesday and there is Thrifty Thursday.
