Updates for Stilwell Junior High School Families
Sept. 6, 2022
Message from Principal Kuhnert
Welcome to the week. We will be starting this new newsletter to communicate all events coming up at Stilwell. Our goal will be to have at least a biweekly message with information important to the success of our students and families. This video was shared with all students last week. We hope to highlight different staff and students each week.

Student Travel Information:
Your student is invited to join us on an upcoming educational travel experience to Lisbon, Seville and Madrid in Summer 2024 or Peru in Summer 2023!
When students travel, they expand their knowledge of the world around them, discover more about themselves, and grow more confident. These skills are critical for creating the global citizens of tomorrow, and I would love to have your student join me on this adventure.
Come hear all the details, including the itinerary, activities, academic opportunities, the cost of the trip and EF’s risk-free enrollment period at our informational meeting on September 6th at 6:00PM. The meeting will take place on Zoom.
