    Principal's news

    Greetings Walnut Park STEM Family!

    Thank you for attending Back to School Night. The STEM teachers, staff and I appreciate your collaboration with us in our wonderful academy of learners. We have so many exciting activities happening this month including our Parent University, dances, parent conferences, and College & Career Day.

    Once again, I want to stress the importance of pleasure reading for at least 15 minutes daily. If you need books to read, please feel free to come to our library and check out a book.

    In addition, I want to stress the use of the IXL math, English and science program for our students to develop their skills at an individualized pace. This program is available to all STEM students and they can access it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. It is a powerful tool to keep our students learning throughout the year.

    Here at STEM, we make every effort possible to give our kids the greatest opportunities to achieve their dreams. Once again, I am honored and humbled to be an educational leader here at STEM and I look forward to our journey together.

    Parents, please continue to talk with your children about appropriate behavior at school. We have had minimal to no serious behavior issues reported these first months of school. It is essential to talk to your children about their day and remind them that if they see a problem, even when it does not involve them, to please report it to the STEM office. Anyone, student or parent, can make an anonymous report to help keep our school and students safe

     If you have any questions or concerns, please call the STEM Office. Thank you for your continued support.
