Letter from STEM Board of Directors
Dear STEM Students, Families, Teachers, Staff and Community Members

Congratulations on Tuesday's unanimous Board of Education Approval of our K-4 expansion for the coming school year!

The support and initiative shown, by those attending last night's hearing and by many who could not participate in person, was overwhelming and very significant.  Your letters and public comments were, almost without exception, articulate, passionate and professional.  The students that spoke were amazing and heartwarming in the way they represented themselves, their families and the STEM school organization.  The impact you made, and continue to have, on our community and our organization cannot be overestimated.

  • Way to Go Julia!

    Julia plays piano and, for the past three years, has participated in the Douglas-Elbert Music Teachers Associationannual spring festival, an event at which young pianists and other musicians demonstrate their skill. This year Julia became one of the first piano students in the Douglas County-Elbert County region to win the DEMTA Clef Award. From the DEMTA website: "[T]he CLEF Award is the Culminating Long-term Excellence at Festival Award given to students who earn a rating of 1- or higher at festival.  This award is achieved by earning 1's at festival for three, five and seven years. This program started in 2014. 2016 will be the first year students can be awarded a plaque."Julia won based on her achievement of the highest score (1) three years in a row. Her piano teacher is Nancy Hoover of Castle Rock.

    While not a personal achievement of the type that would normally be highlighted in the school newsletter, you may appreciate learning that Julia also played basketball for Platte River Academy during this past season (Jan. - Mar. 2016). She participated in the PRA program under the DCSD rules that allow students who attend a school without a team in a particular sport to play for a school that does have such a team. Julia was a member of PRA's "A" (first) team and played in all of the PRA games this season.

  • STEM Students Think It Up

    For STEM high-school student Kayla H., music has always played a large role in her life. With the help of Think It Up and some equally enthused classmates (Fraiser, Adriana, Omer) and partners on her project, she was able to successfully create her first album. Go inside her student-powered project, through the eyes of Kayla herself.
