Directors' Updates

A message from Mrs. Ridder, Middle School Director

Dear Middle School Families,

Well, we did it! For the first time in STEM history, we pulled off an April Fool’s day joke on our entire secondary student body. I wish I could count how many pranks our kids have pulled on me through the years, so today was a first! That being said, it broke my heart to see their sweet, sad faces when I announced to them that we had to make up two snow days due to a calendar glitch. The worst part is that we have to make them up on Saturdays! The poor kids! But all was forgiven when we finally announced APRIL FOOLS at the end of the day!

Middle School Conferences

Thank you for your flexibility in rescheduling our parent conferences on Thursday. We had an excellent turnout, and it was a successful evening. I very much enjoyed seeing our wonderful families and catching up with parents and students.

Student Assembly on Friday morning

On Friday morning, Officer Gabe, Michael Link, and I held a Middle School assembly to address some of the behaviors we have seen this semester. The actions addressed were Respect in the Classroom, Lunchroom and Around the School, Online Bullying, Racial Slurs, Transmission of Inappropriate Photos, and Inappropriate Touching. We also touched upon online safety and not sharing personal information with people online. We informed students of the school discipline AND the legal consequences of some behaviors. The students were very respectful, and they listened intently. I am hoping that you can continue these discussions at home.

CMAS is underway for Middle School

Thursday began our middle school CMAS testing season! I checked in on almost every class, and our students were working very hard and in good spirits, for the most part. On Monday, seventh grade is virtual, and on Tuesday, eighth grade is virtual. Click here to view the CMAS Testing Schedule.

A message from Mr. Alsup, High School Director

Dear Stem Spartans and families,

Happy April Fools Day! As you have all heard, the administration decided to pull an April Fools Day joke on our student body. Once the announcement was made, I had students rushing to the office to see if it was really true. Apparently, nobody wants to go to school on a Saturday! Well, thankfully it isn’t really the case, and we don’t have to make up any days.

Today we had a High School Assembly that focused on driving safety. According to the CDC, in 2020, 2,800 teens lost their lives in automobile crashes, and another 227,000 students were injured. It is the leading cause of death for American teens across the country. As I expressed to the students, this one hits me pretty hard because as a career educator, I have lost far too many students to car accidents. We are entering the deadliest time of year statistically, as students are much more likely to be in a car crash in the spring and summer months. As a school, we want to make sure we are doing our part in teaching students about safe driving. It started today with the assembly and the guest speakers who shared their stories and experiences. Next week we will also have several activities to help educate our students, all designed for them to have fun and learn about the importance of safe driving.

Now that we are into April, the end of the year is in sight. This is a very fun time of year. Seniors are counting down to graduation, and the rest of our kids are looking forward to summer. Students are talking about Prom, club elections, robotics competitions and the spring play. With all of this going on, it is easy to get distracted this time of year.

Students, it is important to make sure you finish strong in all of your classes, and if you are struggling, please take the time to meet with your teachers to get the help you need. Parents, I know many of you came to conferences this week, but if you ever have any questions about your child’s academic progress, please feel free to reach out to the teachers at any time.

Looking ahead, April is also testing month. Please see our website for the complete list of assessments, but the big one for us is the PSAT and SAT, that will take place on April 12th. The PSAT 9 and 10 are state-mandated tests, but they are also excellent pre-tests to help the students be prepared for the SAT. Juniors, the SAT is also state-mandated, but as you know, many colleges and universities still request SAT scores, so it is important that you do your best.


Our girls’ soccer is off to an amazing start! We are 3-2 overall and 3-0 in league play! Our track team is also off to a great start, with a number of our athletes setting personal records as they compete in our inaugural CHSAA season. Our next track meet is Thursday, April 6, at Englewood High School. As you know, now that we have a gym, we were able to field our first-ever boys’ volleyball team.

The boys are having a lot of fun and are doing an excellent job against some pretty tough competition. Our next game is this Saturday, April 1, at Gateway! Finally, our eSports are also doing an excellent job. All of our eSports teams are competitive, but our League of Legends team is ranked #1 in the state! I would like to take a moment to thank all of our coaches for the time, effort and energy they put into coaching our students, and they are basically doing this for free. Thank you for all that you do!

Finally, we have started our athletics booster club. Last meeting, we elected our leadership board, and they will begin the fundraising process. I would like to thank all of our parents who have participated to this point and would like to invite all of our parents of student-athletes to join us in the future. This booster club will be instrumental in helping us as we continue to develop and improve as a High School athletics program. If you have any questions about the booster club, please feel free to reach out to me, and I will give you the information that you need!

Please have a safe and wonderful weekend!


Ryan Alsup, High School Director

Updated Snow Day Policy

As the winter season approaches, we want to announce updates to the current Virtual School Day for Inclement Weather policy. Last spring, one of our STEM students presented a proposal and justification regarding changes to our current Virtual School Day policy. As a result, the administration and Board of Directors determined that a change is recommended to the Snow Day Policy. We appreciate the leadership and voice our STEM students display and are happy to announce that STEM will follow the DCSD Snow Day policy with a closure. STEM also reserves the right to modify the calendar, schedule, or this policy, due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather or construction that interrupts the required instructional minutes as set forth by the Colorado Department of Education. The following is a reminder of the current policies.

Late Start Schedule

STEM does not mimic the Late Start Policy and schedule put forth by DCSD. In the event that Douglas County calls for a Delayed Opening, STEM’s Virtual School Day Policy will take effect.

Virtual School Day for Inclement Weather

If DCSD determines that the district should follow the Delayed Opening protocol, STEM School Highlands Ranch will abide by its Virtual School Day Policy. When it snows, our school’s operation and instructional expectations will be determined by one of these three scenarios:

  • Updated: Snow Day – Douglas County Schools calls a snow day – STEM is closed (check
  • Late Start Day – Douglas County Schools calls a Late Start day – STEM is closed and implements a Virtual School Day.
  • All Schools Open – Douglas County Schools declare Highlands Ranch area schools open – STEM is open and operating to our regular schedule.

Update about Secondary Student IDs

Your School Directors (Mrs. Ridder and Mr. Alsup) wanted to share the following information with you in regards to Student IDs, Lanyards and the ID pouches.
  • Replacement IDs if lost/stolen: Students who have lost their ID should complete the Secondary Student ID Replacement Form to order a replacement. IDs are free for the first one and $5 for any duplicates. Duplicates will be printed by the front office and students will be notified when they are ready for pick up.
  • Lanyards and pouches: Lanyards and pouches can be picked up at the Secondary Front Office. Please show your student ID to receive one.
Starting on September 19th, all students must have an ID badge visible while on campus.
