VISITOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Our children’s safety is paramount. Annual Fund helped install Raptor system, the gold standard in campus management & check-in. All visitors now show a state issued id which is scanned and checked then a visitor badge is issued. Over 20,000 schools nationwide protect their students and their campuses with the Raptor System, including St. Stephen’s.

SCIENCE CURRICULUM ENHANCEMENTS Helped the school integrate our makerspace into our science curriculum for 1st - 8th grade.

TECHNOLOGY The Annual Fund assisted with behind-the-scenes computer network improvements to support learning and communication. It also helped students in Upper El & Middle Years connect to people across the world.

Thank You!

One last thank you I would like to convey before I leave is to those who contributed money this spring to the St. Stephen’s Teaching Excellence Award established in my honor. Families, faculty, board and staff contributed $5,500 to create this fund. Each year, an amount, to be determined, will be awarded each to a faculty member in recognition for their wonderful work with our students. This is an honor I never expected and for which I am deeply touched.
