Congratulations Mrs. Sara Jennings

Mrs. Jennings, who has been working as the Literacy Coach for the district and has worked closely with the high school, guiding and managing professional development, teacher professional practices, and learning communities, has been selected as the new interim Assistant Principal at Stevenson Elementary. Mrs. Jennings brings over a decade and a half’s worth of experience to her new position. She will officially start in a full time role at Stevenson at the beginning of the Spring Semester in January. Dr. Janet Hurt will take over her duties at the high school in assisting with the many roles that Mrs. Jennings filled.


Book Club Travels to BG to see Wonder the Movie

Mrs. Tina Shoemake started with a desire to get more of her 6th graders reading through the formation of a book club. What she ended up with was a massive movement that included 4th and 5th grade students from Stevenson all the way through the 8th grade. Through the Russellville Reads Grant under the supervision of District Supervisor of Instruction Dr. Steven Moats and working with District Instructional Coach Cassie Reding, each member of the book club was provided a personal copy of the book Wonder. Upon completion of the book, 60 SES and RJHS students traveled to BG where they were able to see the words come alive on the silver screen.
