The STEM Weekly Stream
STEM Academy Family Newsletter
Week of January 3
This week, we will make the most of the situation. Our teachers and staff have been working hard today getting their virtual classrooms ready for students. Our goal this week is to keep students engaged in their classes, minimize disruption, and be ready to get back to normal as soon as possible.
It will take the cooperation of everyone - students, families, teachers and staff - to make this work. Thank you for your support!
Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, January 4, all students will follow the schedule below. They will log into their assigned teachers' Zoom rooms at the times indicated. This is the same schedule we followed at STEM during Remote Learning last year, so returning students should be familiar with it.
Every student should have logged into each of their four Google Classroom pages this afternoon. Their teacher's Zoom link and additional important information about classes this week is there. Any student who has not already done so should check Google Classroom immediately.
Please remind your students that attendance is mandatory in all Zoom classes beginning tomorrow (Tuesday) morning. Students are expected to be on time and remain logged in for the duration of each period.
If you are in need of assistance securing Wifi or need technical help with a Chrome Book, please email Ms. Memon (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the STEM office at 610-447-3650.
