The 2018-19 academic year got off to a jam-packed start at the Robert Louis Stevenson School. To kick things off, there were two orientation days on Tuesday, September 4th, and Wednesday, September 5th. New students had time to meet each other as a group, and returning students had a separate, streamlined orientation. The first days of school that followed merged the returning students with their new peers for the first time, creating bonds that will be fostered at Stevenson as the year goes on. There were two important evenings for parents in September, as well. Like the students, new parents met as a group for an official welcome to the school year and as a time to ask questions. Later in September, all parents were invited to meet with teachers for Curriculum Night and ran through a sample school day schedule. Finally, on the 27th of September, the RLS student body participated in Field Day at a campsite in northern New Jersey. The day was especially meaningful for the seniors, all of whom tackled a challenging ropes course. All in all, the month of September was an eventful one for the Stevenson community and the year is off to a great start!
