Maize and Blue Math Circles


Math Circles are back on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30pm beginning next week on Zoom. For more information about Math Circles, checkout the website.

Virtual Learning Labs


We wanted to reach out to students and parents and let everyone know that while in person learning labs have been put on hold, we are available every morning for virtual labs.

If you are struggling with an assignment or a concept and would like to meet with your teacher during asynchronous time, please send that teacher an email and they will set up a Zoom with you.  These meetings would take place during the hour that you have the teacher so that you do not miss work in other classes.  So, if you have Mr. Miller during 1st hour, then he would schedule a lab in Zoom during 1st hour asynchronous time.

Please let us know what we can do to help.  Thank you!



Just a reminder that you can report your child’s absence through parent connect instead of calling the STEM office. If you have questions on how to do this, please call the STEM office at 313-827-1904.

Mindful Mondays


STEM will begin Mindful Mondays and Social-Emotional Learning to enhance our learning environment.  The goal is to have students internalize and apply life skills.  Support staff and teachers will introduce interventions to help students adopt a positive attitude before going through the online Compassion Project.  We will be focusing on mental well-being and social skills during the Advisory Period.  If you have questions, please contact Dr. Joan deSouza at

Schoology Update


Parents will be receiving an email today with information to access Schoology.

The technology dept. has created a post on the Home Learning Hub with information for Parents (this is included in each of the student level sections- Preschool, Elementary Pre-K-5, Middle School 6-8, High School 9-12, and Special Education).  The post also includes an overview video. 

Be sure to check your email!

NWEA Testing


The NWEA Test will be given on two dates: Sept. 30th and Oct. 6th.

Please make sure you are creating a desk and study area that will help you do your best and be free of siblings and distractions.

Friday is a Half Day


Don’t forget that this Friday, September 18th is a half day. 

It is an A Day and so we will have hours 4, 5, and 6 asynchronously for all three classes (this includes electives).

Emergency Form Update


The District has added a feature to Parent Connect that allows all parents to directly review student information, make changes, or update the most current emergency contact information.

Please take a few minutes to log into Parent Connect using your PIN/password. If you do not have a PIN/password enter the email address that you have provided to the school so that the system can email you the PIN/password. If your email has changed, please contact the STEM office at 313-827-1904.

Once you have logged into Parent Connect using your unique PIN and password, just click on the “Back to School Emergency Form Update“. This is very important, especially if you have any changes to phone numbers or emails as we work remotely. This option will only be available until Monday, October 5th. Please call the STEM office if you have any questions.
