To sign up you will need to know your students team, classes and grade level. The system will then direct you to the correct teacher. Just select the time that works for you from the times available. Some of our coaches and activity directors have limited space available so you can email them directly to set a time that works for both of you. If you need an interpreter that is also a drop down menu.

Caring Adult Survey- We do our best to make sure every student feels connected to Stilwell. We survey all students to ask if they have at least one trusted adult. Then our staff reviews the student responses to fill the gaps.
Career Day Sign up will be happening this week. Students will select their top three careers they want to learn more about. On Career Day our GT students will be doing a fundraiser with Kona Ice. Students during their 4th hour class will have a change to purchase Kona Ice with part of the proceeds going to their selected charity. More information will come soon.
Students and families need to know that over the past week we have been installing new security cameras. These cameras will allow staff to keep our hallways safer by locating student who may be making poor choices. The cameras cover almost all common areas in the building and outside. We thank the District Leadership who has made safety in our school a high priority.
The Junior High school in West Des Moines must raise funds for all of our extra-curricular activities. We will be starting this fundraiser at the end of the month. More information will be coming but we try to raise $20,000 which is our operating cost per year. This works out to be about $30 per student. We are not using a company this year so all donations will go directly to funding our activities. Thanks ahead of time for anyone that supports our students!
