We had a great week with our students with such important events that took place. Earlier this week we were able to celebrate our students and their incredible accomplishments throughout the first semester of this school year. We honored students who made the Honor Roll with a 3.0 GPA by giving them a window cling for their parents/guardians at home as well as a treat. Our On A Roll and Perfect Attendance winners received a certificate and treat during lunch too. The On A Roll recipients are selected by the teachers for students who have showed significant improvement in their classroom around behavior or academics. We also celebrated our 4.0 GPA earner students by treating them to a sundae bar during their lunch. Thank you to the parent volunteers that we had to make this event so special for the kids: the Henn Family and the Kitzinger Family.
We had a great week with our students with so many exciting events happening. This week we started our second semester of school for this year. All of our students had a refresher as to what our school behavioral expectations are and why they are important. All students who ride a bus also attended a bus assembly this week where we outlined our expectations along side our amazing bus drivers. I have attached the bus assembly slides, our school RAPS behavior matrix, and our expectations presentation that teachers presented. Please check those out when you have a moment.
Thank you for reading this weekly newsletter and staying on top of all the amazing things happening here at Stevenson.

November has been a very exciting month for many of our students. Our Wayne Memorial High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team is in the National Preseason Top 40 for the first time. We are proud of all the hard work and energy put into the program.
Students from our elementary and middle schools had the opportunity to visit Michigan State University, where they toured the campus and got to watch a women's basketball game. Another group of middle school students visited Lawrence Technological University and participated in STEM day. HYPE Athletics made a $10,000 donation to our PBIS program, which provides students with positive behavior with a one-day pass to the facility. We continue to work with our community partners to offer our students the most hands-on and comprehensive opportunities.
