Wednesday, October 31st is a full day of instruction. No parties will take place this day.
Please do NOT bring any treats to pass out, you will be asked to put them away.
Students will be allowed to wear appropriate Halloween costumes on Wed. Oct. 31 if they so choose.
All costumes must be put on at home and worn to school and makeup must be applied at home.
Students will NOT be allowed to use the restrooms to put on/fix costumes during the day.
Here are the rules/restrictions:
- No masks that cover the face
- No clown costumes will be allowed
- No fake blood or flesh wounds
- Face makeup is permitted if it is NOT gory and is applied at home.
- No weapons (plastic or otherwise)
If you are not sure if your costume is appropriate, you should email a picture of it to a teacher and get their opinion.
It would be wise to bring a change of clothing if you are worried your costume is inappropriate and might be asked to change.
Any questions? Ask a teacher:)
For your reading pleasure, check out the story about STEM’s Blue Ribbon Honor:
Reminder…Applications for Robotics are due tomorrow!
STEM Middle School was named a Blue Ribbon School for 2018.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. More than 8,500 schools across the country have been presented with this coveted award. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
