August 15, 2014
Happy Friday! We have successfully completed our first week of school! We are delighted to have our students and families returning and excited with our new students and families who have joined the Genesee STEM Academy family!
Our school day begins at 8:15 am and ends at 3:30pm. Please, make sure your child has excellent attendance and is here on time ready to learn. Students are recognized monthly for perfect attendance! Students should report to the gym every morning, use the gym door entrance. Students can begin arriving at 7:30am, breakfast 7:45am. Students are dismissed from the gym at 3:30pm. If you are picking up your child, please report to the gym for sign out safety procedures.
We are working out challenges with transportation to make sure students are riding the correct bus. The bus drivers are learning the students and their locations. Please, be patient as they work through the system getting acquainted with our families. Remember an adult most pick up their children under the age of 10 from the drop off location.
Genesee STEM Academy Annual Educational Report (AER) is available on our website at geneseestem.com and hard copy in our office. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, September 9, 2014 Curriculum & Title 1 Night 4:30-6:00 pm! We will share our school goals, curriculum for each grade level, 2013 performance data, Title 1 programs offered, and our AER information. To support our Literacy goal free books will be given away. Please plan to attend this important school event. We value and appreciate your support!
