Veterans' Day 2021 at STEM
STEM honors veterans in our community. We are fortunate to have many veterans within our staff as well as our families. Military service is the ultimate expression of sacrifice for others. This day is to honor those who have chosen to defend our country. STEM is proud to recognize staff members, families, and those in our community. Click here to read more
Donate to STEMGives! Today!
Our goal is to raise $75,000 for STEM School Highlands Ranch by Sunday, Dec. 13. 100% of funds raised from STEMGives! goes directly to the STEM PTO. The STEM PTO uses the funds to support students and teachers at STEM School Highlands Ranch. The funds will provide classroom enrichment through our teacher’s grants and help fund many other requests by your STEM School. Your contribution is not split with any fundraising vendors and you don’t have to help your children sell anything.
