The STEM Weekly Stream

STEM Academy Family Newsletter

Week of October 24

Hello STEM Families!


Welcome to this week's edition of the STEM Weekly Stream. After an exciting Spirit Week and Homecoming, we are back to a normal schedule this week. With the First Marking Period winding down, it is very important for students to Refocus on Their Academics. It's not too late to sign your student up for the After-School Program if they need extra help.

STEM CALENDAR

ACADEMICS

Two Weeks Left in the First Quarter

The First Marking Period ends on Friday, November 4. Students have just two weeks to ensure their First Report Card is as good as it can be. Make sure to remind them to work hard and finish the quarter strong.

Home Access Center

The Home Access Center (HAC) allows families to view their students' grades and attendance in real time. By logging into the HAC, you can stay up to date on your student's progress and know immediately if they miss class or assignments.


If you do not have your HAC set up yet, email Ms. Misha Memon (mmemon@chesteruplandsd.org). She will reply with your username, password and a link to the log in page.


We encourage All Students and Families to check HAC every day!
