A Letter from Principal Parker

Stevenson Middle School Gets Involved

Stevenson Middle School is the place where students get involved.  In addition to competitive sports teams such as soccer, basketball, cross country, softball, and volleyball, we offer academic clubs such as IMSA, Coding, Computer Programming, Chess, and Destination Imagination and also opportunities in the arts such as Art club, Anime Club, Mural Club, Choir, and Drama club.  Intramurals and gaming clubs are offered as well.  Last year up to 100% of our student body participated in at least one activity or club.   With the support of our school board and the dedication of our teachers we are often able to offer more opportunities than our neighboring schools.  Stevenson Middle School is the place to be.

Stevenson Middle School Teachers….are also Learners

Stevenson Middle School’s teachers are an engaged community of learners.  This year, with the support of the school board and the creativity of district administrators a wide variety of focused professional development was offered to our teachers at the beginning of the school year.  Presenters used and modeled specific teaching strategies which promote engaged learning.  Our teachers learned new strategies to get the attention of their classes without adding volume.  They practiced partner sharing strategies, and also learned about structures, such as ‘co-teaching’ and ‘stations’ which can be employed in their classrooms.  When strategies such as these are combined with dynamic curricular resources – engaged learning is the result.
