Principal's Message

Dear IC STEM Families,

Congratulations to the Class of 2021! We are proud of your accomplishments and wish you much success as you continue your academic journey to high school.

WE DID IT! We survived a turbulent year with highs and lows, but we made it together. Thank you parents for all you did this past year as partners in education for your child. Never have those words rang truer than this year as we navigated through distance learning and transitioning back to the classroom.

Thank you to our students who constantly remind us why we choose to be educators. It is a blessing to be such a vital part of each child’s education.

Thank you to our teachers: true superheroes that reinvented the traditional classroom over the last year.

Thank you all for making the last six years the highlight of my career. I have truly enjoyed being principal at Immaculate Conception STEM Academy. It has been a joy to work side by side with all of you to reinvent our school. I am extremely happy that Mrs. Rojas will continue the work we started and bring IC to the next level.
