News and Events
 
2nd Annual Book Fair Blizzard was a Big Success!


$3,220 raised for our school library and classroom libraries!



Thank you to everyone who came to our Book Fair Blizzard last week!
We sold $6,410 worth of books and other items (spy pens, bookmarks, you name it...) - which gives us a grand total of $3,220 to spend on Scholastic books.
A special thank you to those of you who bought a book for your child's teacher from the Wish Boxes!
  • Between generous donations and money earned from the Book Fair, every teacher got EVERY BOOK in their Wish Box (that includes Mr. Des and Mr. Parsley's 6th Grade Library)
  • We were able to buy EVERY BOOK Mrs. B. had picked out for the STEM Library

Registration for Winter 2015 Enrichment Classes is open!


Please visit http://k5stempta.org/enrichment-programs-preview/ for more information and to register online. During the past two registrations all classes have had seats available for more than 48 hours.

If you require a paper registration form you can download one here, or pick one up in the office. Return paper forms to the PTA Enrichment Program mailbox with your payment.

If you need a scholarship, or are able to be a parent volunteer for a class, please contact afterschool@k5stempta.org
K-5 STEM is Becoming K-8 STEM!
We are excited to announce that K-5 STEM will roll up to 6th grade next year!

There will be two 6th grade classes - our current 5th grade teachers, Mr. Parsley and Mr. DesAutels, will be our new 6th grade teachers.

A lot of hard work has already gone into planning the roll up, with much more to come. A Design Team will be formed in January.

Watch this space for more details on our K-8 development and for information on how to apply to be on the Design Team.
