SMA is Falling for Kindness

Starting November 1st we are launching a schoolwide kindness campaign. Be sure to ask your child about our daily acts of kindness and school-wide decor promoting kindness.

Soccer Schedules

Soccer season starts this month! We would love to see lots of Eagles fill the stadium for the home games. All home games are played at STEM.

Veterans Day Program

We will honor our Veterans on Friday, November 8th at 1:15 p.m. Parents are welcome to attend this event. The event will contain a slideshow dedicated specifically to the Veterans who are related to STEM students and staff. If you would like your loved one featured in the slideshow, please upload their photograph in the form linked below by Sunday, November 3. If your loved one was featured in last year's slideshow, you do NOT need to resubmit. We can reuse the photo from last year. Unfortunately, we are unable to take late submissions since this slideshow takes a great deal of time to compose.

The form will require you to log in to a Gmail account. If you do not have a Gmail account, please use your child's pcstudent.net account.

If you plan to attend the event and would like to check your child out after, please arrive by 1:00. Parents will be allowed to sign students out in the gym lobby prior to the event.

Friendly Reminder about Approved Outerwear

As the temperatures drop, we would like to remind everyone of the approved outerwear.

  • Only STEM Magnet Academy sweatshirts are allowed. If your child does not have a school sweatshirt, they may wear a uniform-approved jacket.
  • Jackets, if not school official, must be solid purple, gray, black, or white. No “heather” or Sherpa jackets. Logos on jackets must not exceed 2x2.
  • Solid purple, gray, black, or white leggings may be worn under skirts or jumpers.

New Volunteer & Chaperone Policy (IMPORTANT)

  • The school district is now requiring all volunteers, including field trip chaperones, to undergo a background check PRIOR to being able to volunteer for school activities and participate in field trips. All volunteers must also have a signed confidentiality agreement on file.
  • Fingerprints must be done at the Louisiana State Police headquarters. The Louisiana State Police headquarters is located at 7919 Independence Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA.
