On Monday, Dec. 12 we will be showing an SBL Information Video starting at 8 a.m. via Live Stream on STEM's YouTube.

Your fellow classmate, Ben Grossman, is living out STEM's mission of Never Stop Innovating and has partnered with STEM Administration to develop ways to help students learn and understand Standards Based Learning.

In true PBL fashion, Ben is trying to solve a real-world PBL to help all STEM students by reducing stress and improving learning.

Way to go Ben!!

A link to the Live Stream will be in next week's Student Newsletter and the video will be available on STEM's YouTube channel for reference.

Check-In with Ms. Kovalesky

It is hard to believe that winter break is around the corner. The first semester was a great success and, as always, has taught us a few lessons along the way. We continue to embrace STEM's mission of Never Stop Innovating and are always striving to improve.

We were happy to see our students, families, and staff return and have enjoyed welcoming new members to our STEM community, who joined us back in August. As this semester draws to a close, some of our much-loved staff have decided to leave STEM for new and exciting endeavors.

Student Shout-Outs!

We want to celebrate our students and for our students to celebrate each other. Give a Shout-Out to a fellow classmate!

Abhilasha Acharya


I want to shout out Abhilasha Acharya (Wish), for being kind to me and my other friends. And for her empathy, because she helped our friend in her low days. 

Melissa Buhrer


Shout out to Melissa Buhrer (Mel) for helping her friends when they needed it the most.

Charlotte Mancuso


She's always there for me and never lets me down, no matter what, and she always is so kind. She could give you the world if she needed to. 

Janelle Tracy


She will always listen to you when you want to talk and will always be there for you. She always includes you and is there if you need anything. She is an awesome friend! 

Lou Fletcher


If I had the choice, I would pick all of the character traits. Lou might possibly be the sweetest and funniest person I have ever met. They've always done their best to help me with my work and would help me see the bright side of something whenever I'm upset. Whether it's something about school or something emotional, Lou is always there to ensure I'm okay. I'm really happy to have them as a friend. 

Ella Fletcher


Ellia stood up for me when I was bullied.

Hunter Engelsen


Hunter is the single most responsible person I know, even surpassing many adults. If he says he'll do something, only a higher power or his parents can stop him.

Steven Goz


He saw one of my friends, Samson, trip in the hallway, and without missing a beat, he stepped towards him and helped him get up, making sure he was ok.
