STEM School Support

June 4, 2019

As we begin our summer break and continue the healing process, below are resources we encourage you to review if you need them. 

 

We will be providing additional support over the summer and will communicate that information directly to parents by email. If you have not received any emails from us, please let us know by contacting suggestions@stemk12.org.

 

For those who are interested, we are supporting the STEM family through donations from our community. All donations received through this campaign will be used for the benefit of our impacted students. Find out more HERE.

 

Our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted by this tragedy, and we are so proud of how the STEM community came together. As Dr. Eucker said at graduation, “The steady strength of our community will endure all storms.”

 

Have a restful summer break. We can’t wait to see you in August.

Un Centro de Apoyo para Crisis estará disponible para todos los estudiantes, padres y personal de STEM en la Iglesia Metodista Unida de St. Andrew a partir de las 8:00 am del miércoles 8 de mayo. Nuestro equipo de crisis del Distrito Escolar del Condado de Douglas y socios de la comunidad proporcionarán Apoyo y recursos para la pena.
