Principal Schreiber’s Message: The Stevenson-Carson School Board approved our SES school improvement plan. Our staff is focusing on data-driven decision making and academic excellence and growth. Our staff is eagerly looking at growth as students complete their iReady diagnostic assessments. Our school is working toward all students making at least one year of growth in English Language Arts [ELA] and mathematics as measured by iReady scale scores. Please be watching and celebrating student growth as noted on report cards. Report cards will be sent home with students on Monday, February 7th.

Student Updates: Mrs. Marquis’ first grade class has been working away at their iReady diagnostic tests. Before testing, each student reviewed their September test results on a bar graph and set a goal of “growing their bar” by increasing their score in both reading and math. They spend a bit of time every day working on “growing their bar” by reading and/or listening to questions carefully and thinking them through before providing an answer. A visual timer is set so that everyone knows how long the class is working, the lights are dimmed, and a small snack is provided. Students can take a break when they need one to reset their brain and maintain good concentration. When a student completes their test, they meet with Mrs. Marquis to see if their goal has been met and to discuss the results. Once everyone completes their tests, the class enjoys a small celebration of their learning and achievements!

Reminders: Dressing Appropriately: Colder weather is here. Please send your child with appropriate clothing, coat/jacket/gloves/hat/boots (with name), to wear during our wet and chilly recesses. Snow boots are needed for recess and/or a change of shoes and socks. Students will have recess in the covered play area unless the weather is extreme. All children will go outside during their recess break. If you child has borrowed a change of clothing, please return the clothing as soon as possible.


Attendance: School begins at 7:45 with dismissal at 2:25. Daily attendance is expected. So, consider the following to assist in getting your child ready for instruction each day:

  • Set a regular bedtime, and stick to it.
  • Check backpacks for messages &/or class homework.
  • Set an alarm clock, or even two.

Chromebooks: Please remember to send fully charged Chromebooks in backpacks each day. Thank you!

Drop-Off/Pick-Up: Please wait in line and remain in your car during both drop-off and pick-up. Children’s safety is paramount. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during this process. Your support is greatly appreciated for the safety of all.

Name on Belongings: The best way to ensure that your child’s coat, backpack, lunchbox is returned or misplaced is by having their name clearly written on the article.  Please take the time to label your child’s belongings so it is easy for us to return misplaced items.  Our Lost & Found is growing.

Winter Weather Notification: The school district will be using our automated calling system to notify families of any changes such as late arrival, snow bus routes or early dismissal.  Morning calls will go out at approximately 6:00 a.m. unless you have requested to be on a 5:00 a.m. list. The calls will go to the phone number you have listed at your child’s school so it makes it very important to notify us anytime your phone number changes. You may also find this information on the district website, Facebook and local news channels.

In case of a 2-hour late start: School will begin at 9:45am (breakfast will not be served) and school will dismiss at the usual time, 2:25pm.
