Opened in 2008, our school is named after Olive Stephens, who served the town of Shady Shores as mayor for nearly four decades. We believe that ensuring high levels of success for all students requires a collaborative effort between staff, parents, students, and community members. We are thankful for the continued support of all of our stakeholders as we "build a community of learners for life!"
We are reaching out to ask you to take part in our teacher and administrator questionnaire. Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in our students’ lives. Your answers will help our school choose the right technology for our classrooms and the right professional development for our staff.
Our school mission is to build a community of learners for life. This community of learners includes all Stephens staff as well as the students in our case. We are committed to working together with our parents and community members to ensure high levels of learning for all students.
We are inviting our parents to sign up to receive text message alerts this year from Stephens Elementary. Just text text @stephensp to (469) 518-2771. This completely private and easy service will help you stay informed throughout the year of important events and reminders.
