SNN Celebrated 20th Film Fest On Friday

The SNN Film Fest on Friday in the West Auditorium was two-fold in purpose: a tribute to Stevenson’s filmmakers of today, and a nod to those of the past.

This was Stevenson’s 20th Film Fest. And to celebrate that, SNN screened student-made films from students currently at Stevenson but also showed highlights from student-made films of the last 20 years. The film genres shown spanned from comedy, documentary, horror and suspense to fantasy and animated action.

All proceeds from the SNN Film Fest went to the World Food Program. For more information about next year’s SNN Film Fest, contact: SNN@d125.org.

Bass Fishing Preparing For Two More State Finals; Correction On IHSA State Meet

At the IHSA Bass Fishing State Meet over the weekend, Charlie Grisamore (pictured far right) teamed with John Wall (second from right) for 38th place, not Liam Plautz, as was reported in Monday’s Daily Digest. Plautz (second from left) had teamed with Matthew Qualich (far left) for third place at the State Meet.

As a reminder, the Bass Fishing Team isn’t done yet. The team continues its unprecedented quest for multiple state titles on June 4 at the ICASSTT Clash on Lake Springfield and on June 11 at the IBN State Finals on the Des Plaines River.

Don’t Worry: We’ll Still Be Here For You! Daily Digest To Publish Over The Summer!

To achieve our mission — Success for Every Student — it is so important to us that students and families receive the information they need to feel fully informed and engaged throughout the entire high school experience. To that end, we are announcing a slight change to our two main communications: the Daily Digest and the Minuteman.

The Daily Digest will now be a newsletter published all year round for students and families. During the regular school year, it features a mixture of stories about students, club announcements and achievements, information about events on campus and varsity sports results. During summer months only, the Daily Digest will transform into a weekly digest with information related to summer enrichment and the upcoming school year. At the beginning of the school year, the Daily Digest will resume as a daily publication.

The Minuteman is now a monthly newsletter published during the school year (not published during the summer months) specifically for parents and guardians. It includes important updates and announcements from our Board of Education, Superintendent and Principal, as well as timely and practical insights related to diversity, equity and inclusion; social emotional learning; substance abuse prevention; and other ways for families to support their students’ learning.

These newsletters are the best way to stay in touch with all that is going on at Stevenson. Students and parents/guardians are automatically added to both newsletters every year. Additionally, you may follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — @stevensonhs is our handle — to catch the latest stories about our students!

Questions? You can reach out to us anytime.
