Big Binders- Making the Grade!

This year, Stevenson Secondary Schools have adopted Big Binders building-wide to help students become better organized and stay on top of their grades.

School supplies this year were more streamlined to match our new Big Binder initiative.  Each student carries the Big Binder to each class, ensuring that they are ready with all their necessary supplies- planner, paper, pens & pencils, and a pouch full of handy materials.  This practice started last year with our students in AVID and Gateways.  Teachers commented on how prepared and organized those students became after they started using their Big Binder.  They also saw their grades go up!


As a parent, the Big Binder is a great resource for you, as well.  Ask to take a look at it on a regular basis and have your student share what is going on in class.  Also, take a look at the weekly planner and talk about assignments and upcoming projects.


Each week students participate in a Weekly Big Binder Check in ADVO in order to reinforce keeping the binder well organized and prepared with all the supplies needed to be successful in class.  The Weekly Big Binder Check assesses students on the use of their planner, having all needed supplies, and organization of their materials.


If you have questions about the Big Binder Initiative feel free to call your student's ADVO teacher.  For a list of Big Binder supplies, continue reading.

Welcome to the 2014/2015 School Year!

It is hard to believe the summer is coming to an end and a new school year is about to begin! The 2014/2015 school year is going to be a great one. Staff have spent part of their summer preparing their classrooms and developing lessons. The SHS and WRMS staff have also been attending a number of trainings on their personal time. In total they have accumulated over 900 hours learning how to better meet the needs of all students and provide an excellent learning experience in their classroom.

Be on the lookout for our back to school mailing, which should arrive soon.  The district will also have a spread in the Pioneer in the upcoming week.  Continue reading for more information about school supplies, Orientation, and important dates.

Stevenson High School Alumni Banquet


On Saturday, June 21st, the Stevenson High School Alumni Association held their 49th annual banquet.  Nearly 200 alumni and guests were present to celebrate the anniversary of their graduation from Stevenson High School.  The class of 1964 were the honored guests at their 50th year reunion.  There were also a large number of alums from the class of 1954 celebrating 60 years and few from 1944 celebrating an amazing 70 years.  


The Stevenson High School Alumni Association Banquet is a wonderful way for SHS grads to reconnect with former classmates.  The banquet also helps to raise funds for the Alumni Scholarship.  This year, four students (Jewel McKee, Kyle Nyholm, Taylor Peppiat, and Mattie Olsen) from the class of 2014 were awarded $1000 scholarships to help fund their goals of high education.
