April 25, 2014
Happy Friday! We had a spectacular Earth week celebration! Thank you to all our students, staff, parents, family, community, and GSTEMA Board members who participated in this awesome project. Your support truly made a difference! Our garden work sponsored by our Agricultural club continues, we appreciate any volunteers who like to lend a hand and join the fun learning experience. Donations of yard tools, lumber, and other gardening supplies are welcome! Please, contact the office for more information.
Progress reports will be mailed Friday, May 2nd. This week students have been engaged in taking a pilot state assessment. Students have been learning how to navigate through the test utilizing various tools. We are preparing them to be successful for next year’s assessment change. I’m proud to say they have been focused and working hard to do their best!
It’s time to salute the special ladies of our school. Our first annual Queen & Prince Ball will be Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 6pm. You can purchase your tickets next Thursday from the main office. The cost is $5.00 per person. Purchasing your ticket in advance will help us prepare for our elegant evening and have a gift reserved for the Queen & Prince. Please, plan to attend this grand event!
I can’t believe it’s time to start preparing for our Prekindergarten and Kindergarten Graduation on Thursday, June 20, 2014 at 2pm. Mark your calendars for this special date as we celebrate a milestone achievement for our little scholars. We will be ordering graduation attire for our students May 22nd. The cost will be $20.00 for each student.
Genesee STEM Academy will be joining 3 million educators worldwide in taking a stand against bullying in our schools. We are excited to participate in a worthy cause to promote a safe environment; Stand4Change Day 2014, is May 2nd 12:00 EST.
