Principal's Letter

September 9, 2019

 Thank you to our scholars and families for a great first week of the academic year.  Our young adults are settling in at Tesla STEM High School, and the faculty is already working with our STEM business partners to bring their additional expertise to all our students. It is going to be another solid, exciting year at T-STEM.  Our Commitment: We deliver STEM Literacy to every student, every day, every year.

 A Few Items for Review:

  •  Closed Campus:  Tesla STEM High School is a closed campus.  Students may not leave campus between the hours of 7:30 and 2:20 (including lunch times) without written parent permission.  Think safety…..thanks!!
  • Highway 202:  As you have experienced, highway 202 is challenging even in the best of weather months.  Please talk with your student about not walking or riding a bike on highway 202.  Again…safety first.  Many cars and trucks drive over the speed limit, and there is not much room for error. 
  • Student Schedules:  We finished with most schedule changes by the end of day on Friday.  Our counselors work hard with our students and parents to match students with requested courses.  As you know, this process starts back in February with multiple meetings and information sessions and ends with both students and parents signing off and approving student course requests. 

 Freshmen to Seniors

 We have the pleasure and the honor of working with your sons and daughters for 4 years at T-STEM.  We have much to celebrate through the years.

Have a great week, everyone!!
