Annual Fund Update
The 2014 -2015 Annual Fund Campaign at St. Stephen’s was launched on September 2 and we are counting on your participation. So far we have raised $60,000. Each classroom’s goal is 100% participation, and we need your gift commitment to get there. Our goal of $150,000 can be reached if we can secure $90,000 more gifts. Currently 40% of the SSESH Community has given. Let’s make this happen and show WE HAVE A HEART FOR ST. STEPHEN’S. You can donate here. Or make your pledge online here.

What will our families learn?
The first topic of the academic school year is "Being Fully Present" and "Finding Individuality in Our Children's Learning Styles". Parents will interact with Nahla Nasser, Lower and Middle School Principal, in understanding how to actively engage in the lives of our children. Students will be led in related activities by St. Stephen's teachers and assistant teachers.
Are you mind full or mindful? We live busy lives, and we are constantly multitasking to meet the needs of everyone. Being mindful and fully present allow us to live in the moment, enjoy it, and give our undivided attention to whatever is happening. This takes training and conscious effort using certain techniques that help us to be present.
We will also meet Adriana Crane, LCSW who will help us identify and address social and emotional needs of our children. Cynthia Cadle, MSD, CCC-SLP will share benchmarks for language development and Jane Cardwell, Educational Consultant will provide insight into academic support for various learning styles. You will not want to miss it!
