National PTA has posted to their website the Parents’ Guides to Student Success, developed by teachers, parents and education experts in response to the Common Core State Standards. Guides are grade specific and outline what students should be learning in English, language arts/literacy and mathematics. You can access the guides at: www.pta.org/home/family-
Each week the volunteers at Tutu’s Pantry ask a specific grade to help provide supplies for the Pantry Closet. The food is then given to students and families in need.
We encourage families who are able to participate to bring nonperishable items such as the examples below. Please only donate what you can.
Below is the schedule:

Join us for 2018-19 General PTA Meetings:
All meetings are 6:30 – 8 pm in the Stevens library. Free child care is available for kids K-5. Spanish and Amharic language assistance is provided.
Our artists, our city, our community. Celebrate and fundraise for the artists, leaders and innovators of our future. Come as you are for an evening filled with music, food and cocktails all in support of our school!
Tickets for the auction are available until March 5. Catalogues are available at the front office so you can plan your bidding ahead of time!
And new this year – you can “Buy it Now” for select auction items and pre-sales of teacher experiences.
The auction is one of our major fundraisers to support programs for our kiddos – and it’s a whole lot of fun!
To get tickets or learn more, go here!
Do you have a child entering kindergarten next year?
Consider attending one of SPS’s Kindergarten Admissions nights.There are five across the district, the closest one for Stevens students is Thursday evening, January 7th from 5:30-7 pm at Beacon Hill International School.
The goal is to help families through the often confusing process of completing the SPS admissions packet early so you can focus on helping your future scholar to be excited and ready for school in the Fall. At each event kids and adults can visit a K classroom, get answers to admissions questions (with interpreter support if needed.) There will be resource tables, fun art activities for children, and a giveaway book.
