Robotics Competition


Hi STEM families!

This is just a reminder that our middle school STEMBOTS will be competing in the First Robotics Competition at Riverside Middle School in Dearborn Heights tomorrow (Saturday, December 1st) from 7am to 7pm. Feel free to stop by at some point during the day to cheer on the team!

Jazz Band is Cancelled Today


Jazz Band is cancelled today because Ms. Hartrick is ill.


Update from Student Council

        With the holiday season approaching we here at STEM wish to give back to the community and to those in need through charity. We have chosen two amazing events that are currently in full swing here at STEM.
        First, we have a canned food drive running now until December 14th. The food will be donated to a local charity called The High Five Hideout located in Inkster. This group provides positive activities for the youth of the surrounding area and helps to provide what they can for families that have fallen on hard times. We will be accepting canned goods until December 14th that can be delivered to the box next to the wood bench near the front door of STEM or to Mr. Kerry’s room. We are hoping to donate around 500 cans of food which equals to about 2.5 cans per student.
        Second, the students of STEM were given donation boxes for Pennies for Patients on Tuesday. This charity benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and runs for two weeks ending on december 11th. The boxes are like small piggy-banks and the idea behind the events is to donate that pocket change you have at the end of the day or maybe just laying around on your nightstand.
      We truly appreciate the support that each and every one of you give to us here at STEM and we want to spread that support to those in need this holiday season.
Thank you,
STEM Student Council

Candy Drive Update

Thank you to everyone that participated in our candy donation! We received close to 30 pounds of candy that will be donated to a charity that provides packages filled with candy, toiletries, cards, letters, and little gifts from home for troops overseas. These packages are especially welcomed during the holiday season when members of the military cannot be home with their loved ones.
Thank you again from The STEM Student Council

RE: Precautionary Lockdown

Greetings Parents and Community Members,
As part of our ongoing effort to provide you with accurate information I would like to take just a moment to share with you details regarding a brief lock-down that occurred at our school today.
Around 12:30 this afternoon, policed informed us about a situation in the neighborhood near the Michael Berry Career Center.  As a precautionary measure, they suggested the school/campus lock all doors and have all students and staff remain inside. The situation in the neighborhood was quickly resolved and a few minutes later the school day continued as normal.
Again, this situation did not involve our school or the Dearborn Heights Campus and actions taken were precautionary measures.
The entire staff at the Dearborn Heights Campus is dedicated to the safety of all students during the school day. Today was an example of how being prepared and practicing our emergency procedures help to create a safe school experience. I know that by working together we can continue to keep our school a safe place for all students.
Thank you,
Dr. Winifred Greene – Principal                        Oussama Baydoun – Assistant Principal

STEM Tardy Policy


Due to the increasing amount of tardies between classes DURING the school day, and numerous discussions between staff, administrators, and students, STEM will implement a new tardy policy beginning Monday, Nov. 26.

(This does NOT include tardies to school in the morning:)

When a student is tardy to class, the teachers will track them on a school-wide spreadsheet.  Tardies can be accumulated throughout the school day.

When a student reaches their third tardy, they will be asked to make a phone call home to notify a parent as a warning.

After the fourth tardy, the student will receive an hour-long Friday detention. The teacher that assigns the detention will call home to notify parents of the detention date.

Detentions will take place in Ms. Fryzel’s room on Fridays from 2:15-3:15 pm.

If you have any questions, please email a teacher!
