Letter to Patrol Families

Dear Patrol families,
            To thank your child for their hard work as a School Safety Patrol, we will be walking to Rod’s Park on Monday June 26th and having a picnic lunch. You do not need to fill out a field trip form as we already have a “walking field trip form” on file for your child. We will be providing pizza to all patrols. We will be gone from 9am to 12:45pm, so students will be gone from school over the lunch hour. Please send your child to school that day with a water bottle, sunscreen and some snacks.

Thank you for supporting your child as a School Safety Patrol,

Miss. Griffith and Mrs. Havixbeck

In the beginning It shows Sumire, Sarada, And Cho-Cho. There's this Creepy Guy Following them With a "Disguise Jutsu" a.k.a Invisibility Cloak. They feel something following them So they turned around but they can't see him. So they keep walking and they turn around again! But they still don't see him.

Boruto, Shikadai, and Mitsuki hear screaming so they go to to where they heard screaming. There's the girls and the guy following them. The boys ask the guy "Why are you following them?". He tried to answer but he's too shy. He finally answered, He said that he was actually following Sumire because he likes her. Later that day, Sumire sees something on the board. It says something about Sumire. They think it's the guy that was following them earlier. When Sarada, Sumire, Cho-Cho, Boruto, Shikadai, and Mitsuki were walking out of class, a bunch of paper starts falling out of nowhere and when Sumire reads one of the paper it says, "I love you Sumire" and "We will be alone". They try to find the guy who was following them because they know that he's in the there school, the girls go into the ninja tools room, A bunch of smoke gas drops and The room gets filled with smoke Sumire gets out of the room and tries to get Sarada and Cho-Cho out but then the room gets locked. Summer gets taken by the guy and he takes her to the roof. She screamed and Boruto, Shikadai,And Mitsuki go to the roof. The guy that took Sumire Said "We are finally alone". The girls finally get out of the room and goes to the roof. The creepy guy turned invisible and Threw Shurikens and Kunai's at the girls and the boys. The creepy guy runs behind Cho-Cho and tries to stab her with a kunai but stops. Cho-Cho said a speech which is very long and the creepy guy turns back to normal.

Pogo Stick Benefits By Jack

                                                                   Pogo stick benefits
Hi, it's Jack  you may remember me from last night I was on the pogo stick. So the benefits of the pogo stick is better balance and higher jumps without it. The trick to doing the pogo and to get the benefits is to practice, practice, practice. To be able to do what I did was nine months! So practice, practice, practice!

Outdoor Education Letter to Parents

May 8, 2017

Dear Stevenson Families:

Stevenson School will once again be participating in an Outdoor Education Challenge! Each classroom will be learning outdoors for different periods of time from May 23 – June 29, rain or shine! Some classrooms have already been taking their learning outside and building stamina for staying out longer and for going on community walks. Students will be designing and constructing shelters for the playground to take a break from the sun, wind and/or rain. We also will have several tents and our school tipi as sheltered learning spaces. Students will even be eating lunch outdoors in June.  In the event of extreme heat/humidity or severe rain we will take a break and head indoors.
We are asking for your support to make this an enjoyable experience. Students should dress for the weather and will need some supplies to ensure their comfort and safety each day.
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Rubber boots and a rain coat or poncho
  • Umbrella (optional)
  • Sweater or jacket for cool mornings
  • Water bottle
  • Backpack
  • Sunglasses
  • A change of clothes 

*All items should be labeled with your child’s name and room number please. 

Our plan is to engage students in a variety of literacy, numeracy, science, social studies, art, and play activities that stimulate their interest in and their appreciation of the outdoors.

While outdoors in nature, a child is more likely to “encounter opportunities for decision making that stimulate problem solving and creative thinking because outdoor spaces are often more varied and less structured than indoor spaces,” and “induce curiosity and the use of imagination” (Burdette & Whitaker, 2005, p. 48).

Part of our outdoor learning will involve exploring our community.  In September, you signed a permission slip to allow your child to participate in community walks for the remainder of the school year.  If your wishes have changed since then, please contact your child’s teacher directly.

Another way you can support our outdoor learning adventures is to volunteer with your child’s classroom. Please let your child(ren)’s teacher(s) know if you are available to join them.

We are looking for some donations of items that would help in our learning outdoors. If you have any of the following items or you think of something else creative we could use, please contact the school:
  • Scoops, shovels, cups, wooden spoons
  • Pots, pans, muffin tins, pails
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Pieces of wood, logs, pegboard, pressboard, cardboard
  • Small toys and loose parts (cars, dolls, shells…)
  • Tires
Also, we are looking to borrow the following items:
  • Wagons
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Adult sized shovels
  • Binoculars
We are excited to share this adventure with our students and look forward to the learning opportunities we will have together. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher at school.

Yours in learning,

Stevenson Staff
