WHAT WOULD YOU ASK?
Simplifying Stevenson is a Q&A program for parents of current 8th-grade students. The single purpose of this popular 16th-annual program hosted by KCSD96 Parent Network is to give parents the opportunity to ask Stevenson students–seniors and freshmen (and SHS Principal Troy Gobble)–questions about how SHS students (D96 alumni) choose their classes and extracurricular activities, make summer school decisions, make the transition from middle school, balance the workload, and more. No preregistration/RSVP is needed and all interested adults are welcome.
Simplifying Stevenson is Tues., Jan. 22, 7–8:30 p.m., in the Twin Groves Middle School Learning Center. Arrive late/leave early as your family schedule requires.

THE REQUIREMENT FOR SOME TO PROVE RESIDENCY AGAIN
Attention: Parents of all current KDG and 5th-Graders
Who must prove residency?
Parents of all current KDG and 5th-Graders.
Yes–even if you proved residency at the start of the current school year–and even if you have other students currently attending KCSD96 schools–it still is necessary to prove residency again for current kindergartners and current 5th-graders. Administrative assistants at Willow Grove and KCSD96 elementary schools will accept proof of residency and provide a required form for your signature.
At what school should you prove residency?
Prove residency at Willow Grove for current kindergartners.
Prove residency at the elementary school your 5th grader currently attends.
How do you prove residency?
At Willow Grove or the elementary school your 5th grader attends now, please visit the building office and present the following to the administrative assistant:
• a current monthly mortgage or lease statement or property tax bill
• a current utility bill
By when must you prove residency?
No later than Fri., Feb. 15. This deadline is important! Your current kindergartner’s or current 5th grader’s online registration form link will not be emailed when 2019–20 registration opens for all returning students districtwide on Mar. 1 and he/she will not be assigned a teacher for the 2019–20 school year until you do so.
