Read Across America

Read Across America


March 3rd was a reading celebration at Stevenson Elementary! The day began with Cat-in-the-Hat (Monica Midland) greeting the students in the front of the school. Some students arrived dressed as their favorite Seuss character. Mid morning bus loads of SHS students arrived to read with our Bullpups...that was definitely the highlight of the day. At noon, thanks to Chris Youngren, our students enjoyed "Sam I am Dogs and Birthday Honk-Honker Cake". Other staff dressed in Seusswear and it was a VERY FUN day encouraging reading throughout the building! That evening, families returned to SES for a Family Literature Event. Families read together, played games together, had a snack and picked out a free book to take home. It was a GREAT birthday celebration!

From the Superintendent

Dear Colleagues:Dr. Hundley

When you love what you do, when you love the people you get to do it with, when you love where you do it, there is never a good time to leave but there is a right time. I have worked hard over the past three years to prepare for the next transition. Much work remains to be done. The 2010-2011 school year will be a challenging one. The state budget will be difficult. We will have new administrators at two schools and both will need our support to get off to the best possible start. We must redouble our efforts at perfecting our leadership team. If we keep our eyes on the target, we will be well prepared for your next superintendent. I look forward to this year as the final opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students. You will see the best superintendent you have seen in some time. By the end of the year, you will see a superintendent who left it all on the field.
