Direct Give and Middle School Open House this Week

October welcomes the start of the STEM K-8 PTA Direct Give Campaign.   These donations make it possible for the PTA to support exceptional learning experiences for STEM students.  The Direct Give provides hundreds of STEM books, additional technology, tools, construction materials, scientific instruments, software and supports vital parts of our program such as Project Based Learning.  Funds are used to provide staff with additional planning, training, classroom resources, and support. The 2018-19 Direct Give campaign starts today! Please donate to the STEM K-8 Direct Give at whatever level you are able.

Thanks to all of you who were able to join teachers for the K-5 Open House last week.  This Thursday, October 4th, from 6-7:30 is our Middle School Open House.  With a number of classes for families to visit, the Middle School Open House schedule is tight.  Families head straight to classrooms without gathering in the cafeteria first.

We suggest middle school families check with students to decide which Pathway classrooms to visit. Students have three or four Pathway classes, and families will  have the opportunity to visit two of them.

We continue to report to Seattle Public Schools and the City of Seattle regarding the homeless encampment that has returned to the woods above STEM K-8.  It has been assigned to the Seattle Navigation Team and Seattle Homeless Coordinator for support services and clean up.  Despite repeated cleanups, it continues to reappear.  It is an ongoing challenge that our city is struggling to meet in providing for basic human needs for everyone.
