Hello STEM Parents/Guardians and Families,
We kicked off the Read-A-Thon program on Monday, February 29th in coordination of the National Education Association’s “Read Across America Day” and of Dr. Suess’ Birthday. STEM students should dress as their favorite story character on Friday, March 4th. This FRIDAY dress up in support of National Reading Month!
A musical message from Mrs. Duncan (read to the tune of “Under the Sea” from the Little Mermaid) in a few short weeks, your child will present their Disney and the Movies Program! Hopefully you already have it on your calendar. It is March 15th at 7:00 pm at Comstock Community Auditorium at the high school. Your child needs to arrive at 6:40. Doors will not open to the auditorium until 6:30, so please do not arrive earlier than that time. Your child can enter through the Colt Center doors, and you can enter through the auditorium doors across from the football field.
There are no costumes required! Your child should look nice, no STEM uniforms are required......I would prefer no T-shirts or shorts please. It is a great program, and your child has worked very hard on this program. So invite family and friends. It is going to be a great night. There will be a rehearsal on March 15th from 9:30-11:30 am at the auditorium, so please try and not make any appointments during this time. All staff will be at the auditorium, so if you are late, you will need to transport your child directly to the auditorium.
