Hello Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of the faculty and staff at Stephenson High School, I am excited to welcome you to the 2017/18 academic school year! We are looking forward to another productive partnership with you to ensure our scholars can achieve to their highest potential. We know that a strong partnership with you will make a huge difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our scholars’ success. We want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.
To ensure a great start to the school year please make sure that your scholar adheres to the following:
- Attends school and class on time with supplies daily
- Adheres to school rules and dress code (See Website for details)
- Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.
- Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
- Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
- Informs you and the teacher if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
- Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and to go on to be successful after graduation
I strongly encourage you to join our PTSA this year. This organization serves as an advocate for all scholars here at Stephenson High School. This important organization sponsors activities like our honor programs, senior trip, and scholarships. Our PTSA has many activities planned for this school year, but they need active and financial members to ensure they are successful.
We look forward to seeing each of you at Open House on Thursday, August 3rd, 2:00pm – 6:00pm. Freshman Scholars will have Open House from 2:00pm – 4:00pm. There will be a brief program in the Gymnasium at 2:15pm for our 9th grade scholars and parents. Returning scholars (10th – 12th Graders) can come to the school between the hours of 4pm–6pm to retrieve their schedules and visit their teachers. Please feel free to contact me or any member of my staff if you have any questions.
Enjoy the rest of your summer break and remember our theme, Jaguars “ALL IN” G2G Geared to Greatness.
Determined to Succeed,
Michael A. Jones
