Students at Stevenson had a surprise guest reader on September 11, when D63 Assistant Superintendant of Teaching & Learning Aaron Roberson stopped by to share a book. The visit was part of a full morning he spent at the school, meeting with teachers, observing classrooms, and getting to know the students.
Stevenson was one stop on a planned "tour of schools" Roberson is taking as he jumps into his new position (Roberson was previously Principal of Apollo School). The goal is to gain an indepth perspective of all seven D63 schools - their students, teaching, and classroom environments.
On a beautiful Wednesday, D63 welcomed 3,600 K-8 students back to its seven schools! There were lots of smiles, greetings, photos, and great excitement as friends reunited. The rare first-day tears shed by a few of our kindergarteners quickly dried as they met teachers and began to explore the school.
This year Opening Day went exceptionally smoothly; students quickly and easily found their classrooms, settled in, and jumped right into learning and fun. Parents chatted and reconnected on the playground before heading home.
Thursday was wet, but that didn't dampen the spirits of our First Step preschoolers who joined us at Apollo, Melzer, and Washington. As we head into our first full week, D63 has a full house!
