English Enrichment Awards:



Dear STEM Parents,

Our English Enrichment class serves students who need extra support in the areas of reading, vocabulary, and other Language Arts related skills. These students work on a program called Reading Plus that allows them to Level Up once they have mastered a skill set for a certain grade level. 

The goal is to encourage students to meet their weekly progress set by the program and in so doing Level Up progressively until they reach their current grade level's skill set or beyond. 

To provide positive incentive, we offer $5 gift cards as a reward when students Level Up. This helps build their confidence and is something that each student looks forward to throughout the semester. 

We are requesting donations of $5 gift cards to help support these students' hard work and achievements. Your donation will go to the cause of increasing literacy and building positive associations with reading and language arts practice. 

Thank you so much!

Mrs. Christian

Volunteering Basics:

Thank you to our volunteers at STEM School and Academy!  We wouldn't be here without everyone who contributes -- our successes are truly a group effort.  
Our charter requires a commitment of 30 volunteer hours per family (15 per single parent families).  
To help make volunteering seamless, we are using the software system, HelpCounter, to:
  • Set-up family accounts for volunteer requirements
  • Track and log volunteer hours completed
  • Select “interest” areas which will allow us to contact you with volunteer opportunities                                                                            

When volunteer opportunities become available within the area of interest that you have chosen, you will be emailed with a sign up link.


There are often donation opportunities available as well.  

Every $20 = 1 volunteer hour, and can be logged just like all other hours.  


Set up your account:
  • One benefit of our volunteer system is that when you sign in at the front desk, your volunteer hours will automatically be logged for you.  You will also have the capability to log hours from home.
  • To get your account startedrequest your password, or log your hours,       click here          
  • Please be sure to create your account as a family (ie: Jack & Jill Hill)
  • If you feel like you will both be here at the same time and want separate accounts, please let us know by clicking this link so that we can link your accounts and give full credit when adding up hours.  
  • Also, be sure to let us know by clicking this link if you are a single parent family.

Thank you, and please let me know if I can answer any questions for you,
