Good Afternoon Titan community,

We are moving into a busy week 4 which includes Open House and Homecoming. We also have a fun filled spirit week planned, see below for the theme of each day. Open House will take place, in person, on Thursday, September 22 at 7:00 pm. starting in the auditorium. The Titan Shoppe will be open during this time to purchase Stevenson gear. The Homecoming Game is on Friday, September 23 at 7:00 against Eisenhower and the Homecoming dance is at Dodge Park, Saturday, September 24th from 7 pm to 10 pm. 

Open house gives you the opportunity to meet your student’s teachers.  It is also a time to learn about the knowledge and skills students will be expected to master in order to be successful in their classes and life. It is a sign of the commitment and involvement you have in your student’s education.  This night is about curriculum and classes, not for individual conferences.  You will have that opportunity next month.  Please save those conversations for conferences or reach out to the teacher via email any time.

The Homecoming Game is on Friday, September 23 at 7:00 against Eisenhower.

The Homecoming dance is rain or shine, at Dodge Park, Saturday, September 24th from 7 pm to 10 pm.  Student ID is required for entry.  No students will be allowed in after 8 pm, and students cannot leave before 9 pm.  Tickets are not transferable, and there are no refunds.

Spirit Week Themes:

Monday, September 19 – Get up and Go

Tuesday, September 20 – Tropical Tuesday

Wednesday, September 21 – Neon Wednesday

Thursday, September 22 – Titan Day

Friday, September 23 – Class Color Day – Seniors -White; Juniors – Red; Sophomore – Blue; Freshmen – Gray

Our Lunchtime College series for students will continue.  The topics being discussed the week of September 19 are Understanding College App Deadlines and Understanding Fee Waivers.  The topics for the week of September 26 are Important Steps in the College Process and What is the FAFSA?  For further information, please check out Counseling Info below.

Applications are now being accepted to join the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Board. Interested ninth grade students may apply via the online application through 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 3, 2022. To be considered, applicants must complete their application AND have a UCS teacher, school counselor or school administrator submit a letter of recommendation by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 3, 2022.

Here is the link for the online application:

Here is the link to submit letters of recommendation (**this is noted on the online application, as well**):

Whether you’ve been exposed to COVID or not, anyone who is sick should stay home. Whether it is COVID, the flu, or other ailments, if you have more than one of the minor symptoms (headache, runny nose, fever, etc.) or ANY of the major symptoms (including cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or loss of taste or smell) your student MUST stay home. 

This is a great time of year to remind all drivers that pedestrians have the right of way in the parking lot. I urge all pedestrians to quickly move through the parking lot and watch for cars. I would also like to take this time to remind all drivers that reckless driving and disobeying Michigan laws will result in a student losing their parking permit.  Your safety is our number one priority.
Also, parking is NOT allowed by students and/or parents in the Court House/City Center parking lot. Dropping off students in this area is also not allowed.

Junior parking permits are now available.  They can be printed from the home page of the Stevenson website under Parent Quick Links. This along with a COPY of the student's driver's license and a COPY of the current registration for each car listed, can be brought to Mrs. Bartold in the Associate Principal's office.

Please take a moment to watch the “How-To Video for School Meals” here:

September is Attendance Awareness Month. Missing just 2 days per month can affect your academic success. Michigan defines “chronic Absenteeism” as missing 10% of school. That would equal 18 days absent in a school with a 180 day school year, or roughly 2 days per month.

With Titan Pride,

Kenneth L. Cucchi III
Principal, Stevenson High School
